Friction releases powerful song to motivate ghetto youth

A couple of months after Friction released the catchy  lovers rock reggae song ‘I Love You’ featuring CASiTA, he is out again with another powerful reggae song: ‘Ghetto Youth’.

‘Ghetto Youth’ is produced by one of Ghana’s best producers, Zapp Mallet, and features the famous Ghanaian reggae artist Blakk Rasta.

The song consists of a very inspirational message to all the youths growing up in a challenging environment.

Blakk Rasta
Friction knew from the beginning that he wanted Blakk Rasta to feature on this song. “I have always followed his moves in reggae music. And I know Blakk Rasta has always been a very positive role model to ghetto youths himself, focussing on his education and inspiring others to do so as well. So I felt like he would fit perfectly in this reggae song and the conscious message of it.”

A couple of months ago, Friction released the lovers rock reggae song ‘I Love You’ featuring award winning soul singer CASiTA. The song and video are still receiving worldwide airplay, and even got Cocoa Tea reaching out to Friction on twitter, praising the song.
