Reggae alpha-male Mojo Morgan is going on the prowl solo. This cornerstone to the Morgan Heritage super group is taking his message and morphing it into a new hybrid. got Mojo? is an alternative record, but one that’s heavily influenced by reggae rock, hip-hop, and R&B. This is rasta-rock as only Mojo can do it – there’s still the same consciousness and lyrical importance, but got Mojo? does it with some serious groove, a la Jack Johnson meets 311 meets Bob Marley.
There’s something for everyone to get on got Mojo? – there’s the standout party track, “Tonight,” and the cover of The Police classic, “Roxanne” recreated with reggae. The mellowed-out and sexy, “Till the End” features vocals Mischu Laikah & Laza is perfect for the soul lovers. “Petrified” is an exceptionally relevant song of the times that addresses issues of domestic violence; lyrics like, “Another day with shades, oh what a disgrace, black and blue is not the color of love,” really make the issue tangible.
