NEW FROM I GRADE
Rebel With A Cause is the seventh studio album from U.S. Virgin Islands reggae ambassador Pressure, aka Pressure Busspipe.
Pressure’s second LP for St Croix-based I Grade Records pairs him once more with the label’s in-house production unit Zion I Kings, sonic architects of his acclaimed 2014 album The Sound. Featuring appearances from reggae all-stars Sizzla, Protoje, Jah9, Kabaka Pyramid, Anthony B and Akae Beka as well as rap icon Redman and Virgin Islands hitmakers R City (of “Locked Away” fame), Rebel With A Cause incorporates a broad palette of sounds from dub and sample-driven hip-hop to soul and jazz, while taking listeners on a meditative journey through topics ranging from spirituality and romance to personal health.
