Roots rebel Protoje debuts an all new video for "Sudden Flight," a bright mission statement for the have-nots of Jamaica. Alongside Jesse Royal and Sevana, Protoje offers keen advice to the youth: You have to be focused, keep the brain fit/ Keep the flame lit, never twist it when you aim it. "This song gives a history of Jamaican politics, names and references are subtly incorporated," Protoje told FADER. "I wanted people to understand the perils of this partisan politics." Heed the message, then catch Protoje live all through Europe this Spring.
