Jamaican artist Ra Deal is ready to be released in this world video premiere of "Free" off the recent African Trod Riddim compilation via Rebel Sound Records. With a mellow bongo beat backing the track, Ra Deal preaches the value of freedom in his take on this slow tempo riddim and shows several ways to feel such luxury in the lush video by Cally B of Small Axe Entertainment and APS Columbian Films.
...Ra Deal provides a look into the finer things in life (and no, money can't buy it).
What is freedom to you? Is it connecting back to nature? Finding your roots? Falling in love? Self-liberation and realization? Ra Deal wants to be "free as a bird" from "shackles and chains... oppression and pain", but accomplishing such a feat in today's world is completely subjective. Create the most high for yourself by honoring your religious beliefs, immersing yourself in a higher power and praise existence for all that it offers. The video for "Free" shows Ra Deal holding a pregnant woman, implying it's better to create life rather than destroy it. Make love, not war, for taking life in the name of politics and national pride is never justified. Chanting proud along lavish landscapes, Ra Deal provides a look into the finer things in life (and no, money can't buy it).
