Speak of Jah: Sizzla Breaks His Silence

Words by Jesse Serwer, via The Listening Party

Sizzla recently welcomed Joshua Chamberlain of radio program The Listening Party (which airs Sundays on New Hampshire’s WXGR 101.5 and is rebroadcast at Big Up Radio) to his Judgment Yard compound in August Town, Jamaica, for one of his first interviews since a serious motorcycle crash in August. In what is one of the most candid conversations with Sizzla that we’ve heard, the cultural icon speaks on the accident, farming, his relationship with the recently departed Philip “Fattis” Burrell, his new album The Scriptures, the history of the Judgment Yard property and even offers some unexpected commentary on Vybz Kartel’s varying controversies— all while what sounds like Jodeci’s Greatest Hits plays in the background.
