Jah9 “Avocado”

One of my main goals for Rootfire going into 2016 is to encourage our community to spend more time outside doing things that complement the music we deeply love. Whether that is through features on bicycle rides and picnics in the country, or pick up soccer games in the park, all of us have healthy passions that the music supports and we are going to make some adjustments to give more of an emphasis on those.
Jah9‘s song “Avocado” provides the perfect lead in, with lyrics paying homage to healthy eating, over an expertly produced reggae riddim in an ’80s style.

Fill your belly on this massive tune… and share with a friend.  I sent the song to my buddy Slam who has an avocado tattoo and my other buddy Zion who has size 14 feet.

It’s not wrong to love an avocado. #JahProvide
