Randy Valentine – Self Boss | New Video
RANDY VALENTINE – SELF BOSS
How apt that this song should be released right now, at this time, in the wake of what is happening especially in the UK.
“This one ah fi every ghetto youth”
Against a soft keyboard musical backdrop, Randy Valentine once again shows his boldness, bypassing the predictable reggae musical route and presenting – yet again – a tune that cannot be pigeonholed. “Self Boss” causes one to listen to the lyrical content. The song tells us about being our ‘owna boss, self boss’, Valentine shows his prowess when it comes to what can only be described as the poetical way he links and plays with words. Epic!
Self Boss” is a call to arms, an encouragement and a reminder. Addressing the youth, the message is that we are in charge of ourselves. Man or woman, boy or girl, whoever you are, you are responsible; whether you are a hustler or entrepreneur. Those who dare to stand up for the truth and do what is right. Valentine’s lyrics – as always – sends a clear spiritual message right to your soul. This is not a song to just bop your head to; sit down and listen to the words.
With all that is happening in the world and in our personal lives, it is easy to forget that we are accountable for ourselves. We may protest about the state of our environment, but ultimately happiness is in our hands; we cannot look to someone else to tell us what to do.
Randy Valentine’s message is clear: it will take discipline and sacrifice to make sure that we are doing the right by ourselves, for ourselves. A timely reminder for what is important.
