Peter Tosh first rose to fame as a member of the Jamaican ska group The Wailers, alongside Bob Marley and Bunny Livingston (aka Bunny Wailer). Like Marley, in time Tosh became a major reggae star in his own right, but while Marley’s espoused a utopian political philosophy, Tosh took a far more aggressive stance toward issues of political equality, economic justice, and rights for people of color . If Bob Marley was the Martin Luther King of reggae, Tosh was the genre’s Malcolm X, and he made no small share of enemies before he died in a hail of bullets in 1987. Peter Tosh: Stepping Razor Red X is a documentary which traces this artist’s rise to fame and the constant controversy which followed him throughout his career. Along with rare interview footage of Tosh, the film includes a number of little-seen live performances, including the songs “Legalize It”, “You Can’t Blame The Youth”, “Fools Die”, “Rastafari Is”, and more.
This Exclusive footage of the “Steppin Razor: Red X” as yet to be released of the reggae legend Peter Tosh. From his time as a founding member of Bob Marley and The Wailers to signing to Mick Jagger’s label to his death at the hands of Jamaican thugs, Peter Tosh was ready to set it quicker than any artist living or dead.
