Directed by G-Mac and filmed in various parts of Kingston, a jubilant Sizzla takes to the streets to inspire his people. Close up shots blending into each other shedding light on the lifeline of Jamaica, the people. The overarching message, believing and uplifting yourself, is presented in a deliberate fashion. Pointing to a portrait of what it really means to stay Solid As Rock in these ever trying times.
Categorically known for quality conscious music spanning 90 plus albums over two decades; the Grammy nominated international artist remains arguably the most consistent Jamaican entertainer to date. Following the release of Million Times, a tribute album to the ladies, Kalonji is back with comprehensive lyrics to craving minds. “Rise To The Occasion,””Holding Firm,” and “Haven’t I told You,” speak messages of elevation not dissimilar in many ways to “Crown On Your Head.” The prolific poet shares songs for the people to heighten their awareness during these dark times.

Concurrently Sizzla symbolizes himself as the everyday man, a teacher, working from within the system to connect minds. Sizzla’s most iconic, musical inflections take visceral form as he trods the cityscape.
