I’ve got a two-part treat for you because I had the opportunity to interview one of the most important artists of a generation: Micah Shemaiah. Here’s part one.

Mr Topple x Micah Shemaiah: Part One

Micah’s been one of the most prolific and influential roots reggae artists of recent years. Searingly conscious, musically ingenious and with a stunning back catalogue to boot, he has blazed a trail in terms of message music. Moreover, Micah is a passionate advocate of vinyl, leading the way in promoting this form of music release. But it is perhaps his worldview which is most profound. Micah is a highly skilled orator with an almost unparalleled depth of though in the music industry. He is currently set to release The Forgotten Scrolls, a three-part series of vinyl music.

So, I caught up with him for a two-part special of the #ToppleUncaged podcast. In this, part one, we discussed The Forgotten Scrolls, the music industry, artificial intelligence and technology, the cult of celebrity and more. Part two will be released very soon!

Enjoy!
