Chronixx/Inner Circle Hit The Ground Running 2015 with New Single "Tenement Yard"

Chronixx and Inner Circle Band on set Tennament Yard
40 years after Inner Circle and Jacob Miller's first hit record the Bad Boys of Reggae and Chronixx came together to put a new sound to the classic tune,'Tenement Yard.'

The tune describes why life in a communal government housing scheme is not good for Rastas. "Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard," the young Rasta rebel sang, lamenting all the "watchy watchy" people chatting his business.  For decades later, a new Rasta rebel steps up on the said Inner Circle riddim and delivers his message, with what amounts to a whole new song subtitled "News Carrying Dread."  Not only are the rhythm track and the message of the new tune in tune with the original, a sample of "Jakes" voice also rings throughout.... MassApealDotCom

"Yuh mouth a go put you inna problem...aaaaa"

As Chronixx and Inner Circle pay homage to the late great reggae singer on this joint, promoters of Jamaica's only roots/reggae festival 'Rebel Salute' will honour Jacob Miller at their upcoming event January 15, at Richond Estate in the parish of St. Ann

A video for the single will be released soon.
