REGGAE LOVE
By : Julion King canadianreggaeworld . com 876ERS JuLion # reggaeforlife

In discussion with Jason McLean of Toronto Reggae , we have decided to do a weekly “ Reggae Love ” to something , someone , an incident , an artist , a producer or a musician that impacts reggae music positively . Topics can range from RasTafari , Bob , Exco , Jackie Mittoo , Koffee , Jamaica elections , politricks , human rights , love , Africa , Black Panther Movement , more love , interviews , events , domestic abuse , elevation of the village and a host of topics , some very famous and some not so famous . Yet we do hope to maintain some loving , truthful ,

respectful dialogue , even with the discussion of difficult topics I find myself getting upset at Billboard Music Awards or the Grammys , two exceedingly well respected institutions in world music culture and I find myself neither acknowledging them or caring about their opinions as it pertains to reggae music
They are not my experts . They do not govern anything about reggae because dem do not know I culture Big props to Charlamane Da God for his “ Donkey of The Week ” or going further back to Chuck Berry and “ The Gong Show ” except , we will attempt to show appreciation and love to something or someone inspiring to reggae music . This week I start with Jason McLean of Toronto Reggae and his dedication to this genre . Jason is a true reggae soldier who inspires me daily for all of his thankless posts and support of the genre . Daily , every day ; for over five years now , he has dedicated his time to broadcasting the genre to Canadians as well as the a worldwide reggae audience
As a man running Canadian Reggae World for nearly twenty years I have a great insight to what Jason does daily on all social media and the tidbits of information he adds in like birthday trivia and past reggae event flyers , posters and photographs . Posting events weekly , keeping his site updated all
by this army of one . Running a reggae record label , selling reggae merchandise ; Toronto Reggae T- shirts for men and women , which is an expense from his own pocket while he sells a few , then sits on inventory for months . Buy a shirt , buy a Tee and donate to his reggae work daily . Buy a shirt and spread the name of a Canadian reggae soldier globally because Toronto , Canada is rated like that . Wear it on vacation please ! Yet nothing deters his determination to grow Toronto Canadian reggae . Jason does this on his own time , on his own dime and will do this because of his love for reggae music . It is the thing that made me a fan of his . Jason
McLean loves reggae music . That ’ s all I really need to see in any reggae soldier . Reggae Love , because of him and his work , reggae as a genre in Toronto has elevated . He and Toronto Reggae have increased the voice of the reggae community in ways that folks are starting to take notice . No one paid him to do most of his work . He just does it . Doing similar work for CRW for nearly two decades I can fully relate to what he does and he has made me into a bigger fan of his . His work elevates my work . Bless up Selecta JaMac , I n I sending out a 5 star Reggae Love to my brother Jason McLean and Toronto Reggae .
