SINGLE INTERNET RELEASE
WWW, September 28 2010 - "Set Him Free" is a powerful track by the Connecticut-based Jamaican singer Pappa Biggy, created in 2009 when the news broke on Buju Banton's arrest in Florida on cokane charges. After almost nine months of being in jail, Buju Banton was finally put before a judge and jury, who could not come to a verdict with the result that a new trial is set for December. That's when Buju Banton will then be in jail for a year.
Pappa Biggy graciously gave the Dubroom permission to upload the track.
There is three sides to every story
Why judgest I in the court of public opinion
You were the one who said innocent until proven guilty, then
Why use your tongue to execute me. Take it from Papa Biggy
I man asking for mercy and compassion
Try know the truth before you judge the man
The authorities charge him for conspiracy
Mek him defend himself before the judge and jury.
Gargamel ~ Buju Banto we pray for thee
Whoa Whoa, Gargamel ~ Buju Banton ~ we pray for thee
I hear the people dem bawling, set him free
I hear the people dem calling, set him free
I hear the people dem bawling, set him free and send him back home to we.
To the authorities this is my urgent plea
Until proven guilty beg you set him free
If we no see no improvement or no progress
We a take it to the House of Parliament an Congress [CHORUS]
This native son from off a the rock
We will never forget you never turn our back
Nough no want hear the artiste a preach and a teach
So them penalize the artiste fi freedom of speech [CHORUS]
The authorities call it incarceration
But John Public see it as persecution
How much more prophet afi sacrifice
Before my people open up their eyes.
