iRiE GooSe’s New Social Justice Opera Rap Opus

irie goose

iRiE GooSe is an emerging independent recording artist who made his professional solo recording debut in 2019. However, the young musician’s creative journey began years earlier. As the son of Grammy-winning artist and producer Wayne Rhoden (aka Father Goose), iRiE has been making music his entire life.

We first heard from Father Goose Music in February upon the release of his single and video “Calling Me“. That track introduced The Static Dive readers to singer, songwriter, producer, and video director Wayne Rhoden. The Jamaican musician is a veteran recording artist who has worked in genres ranging from reggae to rock, pop, and hip-hop.

“Still” is the brand new single from iRiE GooSe, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 3, 2024.  The track opens on a dramatic minor-key mix of ambient piano chords and anthemic rock & roll guitar as a female opera vocalist sets a cinematic scene.  Soon the beat drops on a syncopated downtempo hip-hop vibe. Irie steps to the mic and offers one young man’s frustration with a society still mired in racism, injustice, violence, and inequality after decades of struggle.

"As the older generation's hope wanes, a new wave of activists emerges, fueled by righteous anger and a determination to break the cycle. "
