Of all the Roots-Reggae singers, Burning Spear had to the most politically conscious. Singing of the Rastafarian movement and other songs of historical context, Burning Spear may have not have been the most commercially viable, but he may have spoke for his island’s issues better than anyone else ever did. Burning Spear however is likely not going to be the next Reggae artist (if there ever is one) to get the call from Cleveland.
