Tackling issues of social injustice, poverty and crime against blasting future-ragga beats, TERRY LYNN is the voice of Jamaica?s mean streets. Boasting the political punch of PUBLIC ENEMY and the sonic insurgence of M.I.A, Terry Lynn offers a confronting and unforgiving cultural commentary on her debut album, ,Kingstonlogic 2.0? - with the all brutal honesty of a camera's lens. TERRY LYNN believes that the only way to truly evoke change is to first draw attention to a problem directly & honestly. She offers her hopes & point of view to draw attention to the conditions in which she lives, inner-city Kingston - a city burdened with the highest per-capita murder rate in the world. "I believe in love & life itself," she says. "I am not trying to incite or condone violence in anyway. If you see me in a picture with a gun, it's a satirical picture of the environment in which I grew up. All this is reflected upon us because of a system which I wish not to be a part of." Refusing to dole out the payola ransom money that Jamaican media & radio so often demands, 1000 copies of Terry debut album ,Kingstonlogic 2.0? were instead manufactured & distributed for free across the country & throughout impoverished neighborhoods.
