Blood Money is the latest release from Jamaican Reggae singer Protoje. The song lyrics provide hard-hitting, raw and unapologetic commentary on the current state of Jamaica, touching on recent grievances and social injustices that have afflicted Jamaican society. Protoje describes the air of discrimination, classism, and oppression prevalent in the Jamaican political landscape, calling out corrupt practices, and conveys the meaningful message to his audience of awareness, activism and the need to call for change and accountability.

LYRICS:

Me nah watch no face, beg no more pardon

A nuff drugs money deh a Cherry Garden

Nuff individual society applauding

You can ask anybody where them get them start in

But nuff politician take the donation

So nuff criminal will never see a station

Never see a cell, not even a courthouse

But a every Sunday we see them take the boat out

North coast resort and car dealership

The construction company dem just don't legit

Use it wash the money, turn it 'round and hide it

When the kickback dem come in, the government delighted

So...

[CHORUS]

Police cancel operation,

'Cause nuh real bad man nah go station,

Now if you check the situation,
A blood money run the nation,

Come take a look inna Jamaica,

Injustice in the place now,

If what you see no really phase you,

Then you a the problem that we face too.

Was 'bout to buy an X6 you know

Maybe then I'd never have to be prisoner

Maybe then I coulda not turn in my firearm
Police couldn’t come remand
Come in like me run an army

Was 'bout to be a politician too

Maybe then I coulda make any decision, look

Maybe then I'd make a hundred million disappear

Then me act like me nuh care

Watch you vote me back in there
Because the sad reality

Inna Jamaica, say your status is your salary

Man deh road a carry one whole heap a felony

But them have a family a boost up the economy

So...



[CHORUS]

Police cancel operation,

'Cause nuh real bad man nah go station,

Now if you check the situation,
A blood money run the nation,

Come take a look inna Jamaica,

Injustice in the place now,

If what you see no really phase you,

Then you a the problem that we face too.


Is 'out of many' but a one set of people feeling it

How that real, society you agree to this

Things a reveal, the garbage the machine spit

No smoke screen at Riverton nuh conceal it

Now the system failing, the gap a get wider

A matter of time before a total divide ya
You cross the line, man draw quick fi remind you
If you build it on crime then crime will have to find you

And that's how it's been always, that no frustrate you like it do to me?

How much dead baby deh over jubilee?

How much youths did 10 when them run inna Tivoli

Now them 16, heart fry, head fricassee So...

[CHORUS]

Police cancel operation,

'Cause nuh real bad man nah go station,

Now if you check the situation,
A blood money run the nation,

Come take a look inna Jamaica,

Injustice in the place now,

If what you see no really phase you,

Then you a the problem that we face too.
