This song is about the homicide of legendary reggae artist Peter Tosh. The tribute song touched elements of Peter´s work lyrically and musically through styles heard in his work as a solo artist. The song features his son Andrew and several musicians Peter worked with, including saxophonist Dean Fraser, guitarist Donald Kinsey, bassist George ¨Fully¨ Fullwood and drummer Santa Davis who was in the house when Peter was shot. Santa was also shot but survived.
