Sample text

Thus, when Rastas say something about “I and I” they are talking about themselves and their god. Many of Bob’s songs made use of this “I and I” language as a means of affirming his faith. Bob’s growing militant stance was also evident on Natty Dread. The song “Revolution” was self-explanatory. Simply, Bob was saying that if the youth were going to create a change in their lives they had to do it for themselves, and waiting for the government, or anyone else, to do it for them was a waste of time.

The songs collected for this release exhibit Bob’s interests most directly, as they cast Bob as a Rasta preacher who is discussing prophecy and revolution. Additionally, Bob illustrated his Rasta-based distrust of the Catholic Church. On the song “Talkin’ Blue,” Bob discussed bombing a church, as the Rastas believe that the Pope, and by extension standard Catholicism, are part of the system in place to keep them down. This negative system was described by the Rastas with the Biblical language of Babylon.

He was a laboratory assistant for the Du Pont Chemical Company and he had part-time jobs as a parking lot attendant, fork lift driver, and dishwasher. The rest of Bob’s time was spent writing new songs. He did not particularly care for the fast pace or the climate in Delaware and looked forward to returning to Jamaica and Rita. Also while in Delaware, Bob began his conversion from Catholicism to belief in Rastafarianism. His mother was appalled by the change, but was powerless but to watch as Bob’s hair grew into dreadlocks and as he talked ever increasingly about Haile Selassie and Ethiopia.
