Welcome to Jamrock” is the first single from Damian Marley’s album of the same name.

Lyrics

Welcome to Jamrock covers issues such as crime, poverty and political corruption as part of the harsh reality of “Jamrock”, Marley’s personification of Jamaica, as opposed to the Jamaica advertised as a popular tourist destination. Marley laments Jamaica’s high crime rate and unceasing violence, demanding that those in charge do something about it. In this sense he carries on the legacy of his father before him, in inspiring Jamaicans to stand together.
