The date December 12th, 2014 would have been celebrated as Patrick 'Roach' Samuels' 47th birthday. Instead, it will serve as a day that the entertainment community, as well as his close friends and family, pause for a moment to remember the essence of the big-hearted personality known as 'Roach'.


Business partner and close friend Justus Arison of JA Productions is releasing the 'Tribute' riddim on Roach's birthday to mark his best friend's passing.

There will not be a dry eye when dancehall fans hear the raw vocals of Dami (Young Roach), the biological teenage son of Roach. He sings: "I still see yu in my dreams/ I still feel you in the streets/I still hear yu in the beats/I know yu rest in peace...Father Roach'. This song is a bonafide tear-jerker.

Arguably the best song on the riddim is Munga's 'Tribute' which seems to have struck a chord with the dancehall massive already because Munga's emo-autotuned vocals. On the chorus, he sings: "RIP mi friend/even though yu gone to a place weh mi caan see yu face/still have the memories...RIP mi friend/it hurt me heart to the core and mi caan do no more/but mi de yah fi carry on your legacy'.

The dancehall massive will love the colloquial curse words that are interjected in the first verse which will give the audience to interact with the song.

"The other day, the Munga song play inna one dance inna town and a 20 times the selector pull it up because a yute fly in from the UK, and him lose him best friend a week before and him ah cry and hold the mike and talk up a bagga tings. Him dash weh crazy money on the song, crazy pull ups," Shane, a member of the JA Productions street team, said.

Blak Ryno shows off his incredible writing skills and new age flow on 'The Future' while the hottest girl in the dancehall Ishawna shows up with the vibes 'Domesticated' where she boasts of her ability to cook, wash, clean and "quint it". Street king Chi Ching shows up with 'I Go' where he boasts about his flossing lifestyle and thanks his friends, fans and family who have supported his career.

The Tribute is a fitting tribute to the memory of Patrick 'Roach' Samuels. R.I.P my friend.
