Mackeehan tackles Crime and Violence in new Murda single

Talented reggae recording artiste Mackeehan has released a brand new single that seriously addresses issues of crime and violence and its effects on Jamaican society in general, and citizens in particular.


The social commentary track, Murda, is written by Mackeehan himself and uniquely details the Jamaican reality of death, police brutality, and gorilla warfare in communities ruled by crime.


The single is extremely sobering and deviates from most of the material Mackeehan has released previously, which focused on love and relationships. With the ‘Murda’ single Mackeehan showcases his versatility while at the same time delivering the message of unity to exact change on the human level.


I want ‘Murda’ to be what helps to open people’s eyes to the reality that we need to live more for each other and stop being so aggressive towards our brothers and sisters” Mackeehan shared.


The track is also the first single off Mackeehan’s debut album ‘Time and Patience’ set for official release later this year. The project, already 99% complete, is to be released under US based label Kong Star Records which Mackeehan is now officially signed. The full length project will be geared at showcasing the artiste and uplifting new and existing fans with positive messages.


“Growing up in the ghetto for me was a real roller coaster experience and so with this album, I want persons going through hardships to be uplifted and motivated  ” Mackeehan added


 The 14 track project will also feature collaborations with known reggae acts Chevaughn and Duane Stephenson as well as Dancehall heavy weight Busy Signal. It holds production credits from Kong Star Records as well as local producer Frankie Music. 

As the name suggests, ‘Time and Patience’ reflects on Mackeehan’s own patience in ensuring that the project would be the best representation of his growth as an artiste. 


The ‘Murda’ single also has extremely potent visuals already released and available for viewing on YouTube, the single is now available for purchase on digital platforms including ITUNES.
