Love Your Mama: Daddy Roy the Messenger and "Mama Work Hard"

Some Jamaican reggae flavors our random tune for the day. Mama Work Hard is by Daddy Roy the Messenger, a Jamaican band led by Daddy Roy who grew up listening to and taking inspiration from pioneering reggae artists such as Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and others. Playing what they call "conscious reggae" with original lyrics, Daddy Roy the Messenger intend to promote positivity, strength and unity through their music. They have toured throughout the United States and Canada and have released five albums. You can find Mama Work Hard on their 2008 album of the same name, and on the 2007 worldbeat compilation The World Of 96.1 FM issued by Fairchild Radio.
