#TBT Is D.R.E.D.Z. the Next Generation of Jamaican Dub Poets?

We’re throwing it back to a year ago when we first published on Jamaicans.com…Meet D.R.E.D.Z.

“We operate more like a family and there is unity among us. We don’t just do dub poetry, the name suggests that we live it – Drums, Rhythm, Expression, Dynamic Zeal. So when we perform we take on the role of the character and put our whole selves in it so that the energy is felt. In this country we don’t really have dub poets doing gospel…..DREDZ do! You don’t have a lot of Dub poets who are versatile in their approach and delivery of the style of poetry….but DREDZ is dynamic. DREDZ is out of the box in our approach… Just take a look at the hand, which finger stands out? The big finger. So we’re ‘big fingerish’ in everything.”
