Queen Ifrica

Queen Ifrica is a reggae singer and deejay from the hills above Montego Bay, Jamaica. She is the daughter of ska music legend Derrick Morgan but was raised by her mother and stepfather. Her career began in her home town in 1995 when she won a talent competition in a local club. In 1998 she began working with Tony Rebel's record label, Flames Productions, and has since performed in such music festivals as Reggae on the River in California and Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica. Queen Ifrica, royal empress, also known as Fyah Muma, took the music world by surprise, when in 1995 she turned on a scorcher of a performance in a talent contest at the aptly named Club Inferno in Montego Bay.

One civilization is not complete without it's art 
The highest form of expression of human intelligence 
You have have become complacent 
Sitting down and allowing the other nations to run away with everything 
You have become a bunch of consumers 
You are creators 
rise up mighty people and accomplish what you will 
Without confidence you're twice defeated in the race of life 

They took away the voices, that gave the people pride 
Now we're plunging into darkness 
We all have to play our part, make a bold start 
Every disc jock, tell every artist 
Media houses, we notice you love support the slackness 
How so much alcohol in our parties 
While the girls a broke out 
And the something she drinked knocked her out 
Now she doesn't care where they prop her up 

It's times like these 
I'm missing our heroes 
Times like these i really wish they where around 
Shouldn't have to be like this 
Marcus Garvey 
We know that you tried your best, but we'll to the rest 

They bred up shotaz them, now we have a lot of them 
Prsion pack up, now the grave will be packed with dead 
The broke the national bird wing 
Sell we out clean 
Not sure if we own a god dam thing 
Jamrock why are we giving in to the trick 
that they have been tricking us from the beginning
Parents you need to awake from the slumbering 
It's our children's blood that is running 

It's times like these 
I'm missing our heroes 
Times like these i really wish they where around 
Shouldn't have to be like this 
Bob Marley 
We know that you never died in vain 
We're gonna rise agai, .hey

People use the fist hold the bell 
Beat promise until it swells 
Nobody will hear if you don't yell 
Listen what they tell you about the bucket that go well 
Black woman put on you baggie 
That something should not sell 
That's how we know society's cruel 
Ask who placed the crab into barrel 
PM, opposition stop with the quarrel 
Unite, come together, teach the people how fi chill 

It's times like these 
I'm missing our heroes 
Times like these i really wish they where around 
Shouldn't have to be like this 
Oh Miss Lou we need you 
It's the first I've heard of this 
Hundred and counting on the murder list 

They took away the voices, that gave the people pride 
Now we're plunging into darkness 
We all have to play our part, make a bold start 
Every disc jock, tell every artist 
Media houses, we notice you love support the slackness 
How so much alcohol in our parties 
While the girls a broke out 
And the something she drinked knocked her out 
Now she doesn't care where they prop her up 

It's times like these 
I'm missing our heroes 
Times like these i really wish they where around 
We need you, we need you, we need you 
Sam Sharpe 
We need you, we need you, we need you 
Nanny, yeah
