Rasta Phil rides the waves in his timely new single and video Livin’ Ain’t Easy — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“We live in a time like no other and the world needs this song more than ever,” the Trinidad-born, Brampton-based reggae master and renowned producer says. “With the world at a standstill for almost two years, and civil uproar overtaking even the most advanced societies, everyone surely has learned that livin’ ain’t easy.”
This track features the vocals of New Edition’s Ralph Tresvant and was produced by Ali Durrani, a frequent musical collaborator of comedian/talk show host Lilly Singh. Rasta Phil — aka Philip Thomas — was a mentor, co-producer, and advisor to many famous musical groups through the ’80s and ’90s, including New Kids on the Block, New Edition, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch and more. This talented musical artist started his musical career as a popular local DJ in Boston, and soon became a force in the local music scene. His originality and positive lyrical content are well known internationally, along with his acting and production work.
