February 2008 - Based on the
autobiographical "Red-X Tapes"
only found after his death, Stepping Razor
takes us to the life, works, motivation and
meditation of Peter Tosh.
for one of the better documentaries made on
Reggae and Rastafari!
life, nobody seemed to know about his secret
tapes. He marked them "Red X",
because, as he explains, he always saw his
name on official documents marked with a red
X. He knew he was going to die one time for
the things that he said...
like the plot of a conspiracy movie, but in
realty they formed the blueprint for this
impressive documentary, that should be seen
by everyone even remotely interested in the
Conscious side of Reggae Music.
movie, we are confronted with a number of
witnesses and facts that throw enormous
amounts of doubt to the official story
around the killing of Peter Tosh, that says
he was killed at a "robbery".
Original (bloody) photo's and
reconstructions add to what is yet another
clear case of a Babylonian Assassination of
yet another Freedom Fighter and Truth
We can hear
how Peter Tosh speaks about his childhood,
too, when he was terrorized by the
Babylonian doctrines of
"Christianity" that told black
people, they were born black because of
their iniquity and how "Jesus"
would wash them "Whiter as Snow".
being by far the most militant of the
Wailers, we are also introduced to the
(spiritual) warrior that he was. Peter Tosh
was very much aware of the existence of evil
and how only the Creator Himself could
protect him from it by giving him the power
to fight against evil.
This war of
the devil against JAH was the predominant
theme in the life and works of Peter Tosh,
who is quoted in the movie as saying:
"Knowing the Truth is dangerous. You
can get killed over it".
No, this is
not your average biographical documentary
about your average super star. Even though
the video also shows his carrier as a
musician, STEPPING RAZOR actually goes much
deeper than that and the result is one of
the better documentaries made about Reggae
