Syd Perry is currently on his very own World Tour as well as has just recently released the 'Gold' EP, recorded in Half Way Tree, Jamaica as well as the official music video for 'Propaganda', filmed in Maui, Hawai'i. His single & video 'Crime-Free Jamaica' which features the legendary Earl Chinna Smith (lead guitar), inspired Syd to tour the primary schools in Jamaica performing voluntarily, as well as spreading the message of a crime-free Jamaica with an occasional 1 minute segment on CVM television. As well his song 'Food Security' inspired Syd to start a project where him and his team donate, distribute and plant fruit trees to communities in need across Jamaica.
His music and his mission is intended to uplift and enlighten all people everywhere through the message and livity of RasTafari.
