FABIAN “Ras Goldy” Francis is hoping the message in his latest release, No War , will resonate among the youth. The song will be released in the first week of February and is produced by California-based Rally Up Music.

“The riddim has a rockers feel that selectors and fans alike will enjoy playing aloud. The song, No War, is based on what is going on; the 'war-mongering' political climate we ah experience now. The stakes dem high, we are in the middle of the biggest nuclear standoff since the Cuba missile crisis, and the bad vibes between US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim's, Iran and Palestine, people worried about the potential for a Big War,” said Goldy.

“We don't need no war, especially a nuclear war, and in Jamaica, we tired ah de gun violence, we no want no war inna Montego Bay, Spanish Town, Kingston, across the board, is a universal message, nobody no want the war, Europe no want, Africa no want the war, and the US no want the war, we just want legal ganja, that alone we want,” the singer continued.

In the meantime, Ras Goldy is fine-tuning his debut album which will be released on the Rally Up Music album in April. No War will be on the set.

“I am doing a 13-track album which is essentially a roots reggae and dub album . This is my first official album, coming after my EP, Beware of Bad Lion which was released last year. We are looking to release the album in early April,” he said.

Ras Goldy is best known for the 2014 collab Mini with singer Chronixx. Last year, he got a buzz with Rasta Holiday.

“In 2018, I am going all out to push my career to the next level,” he said.
