The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a copy of Stick to My Roots (RRP £20) deliverable to any UK or international address. This event is FREE to watch.
For this brilliant event, audience members can expect to hear about the histories that shaped Tippa’s relationship with music, the development of sound system cultures and what it has been like crafting sounds that have allowed him to speak back home to Jamaica, the wider Caribbean and the UK.
This event will be filmed live at Brixton Tate Library with Tippa performing songs from his past and present catalogue in order to soundtrack the conversation and transport viewers to the world that he has and continues to inhabit. Sign up now to watch this incredible event.
Exclusive: Speaking to The Independent for Windrush 75, the musician born Anthony Henry speaks with Nadine White about staying successful over a four-decade career, racism in Britain and his new biography Stick To My Roots
YES my people! Daddy Tip here – it’s been awhile, so I wanted to say ‘Hello Darling’ and share what’s been goin on!
First of all – I wrote a book! It’s the “uncensored” story of my life and career and is called “Stick To My Roots.” I’ve been through a lot in my life – most people have no clue what I’ve been through, but you’re about to find out! All of the challenges have made me who I am today, for better or for worse. Lots of my friends contributed stories to this book, including Maxi Priest, Peter Huningale, and Ali Campbell of UB40 just to name a few. And the cover art is from a painting done by my bredren Chali 2na – it’s BAAAAD! The book is available today for presale – and will drop this summer – August 24th! Check it out below…
Second, my calendar is filling up and I will be performing ALL OVA this year! From the UK, to JA, to Serbia, to the USA! On April 1st, I will be passing through the Dub Meeting in Los Angeles – link up with my friends from O.B.F and Iration Steppas, courtesy of Dubsiren. Come on through if you in Cali! And don’t miss me with full band (The Upper Cut Band) at Reggaeland in the UK this August – that one is gonna be HOT LIKE FYAH!!
Speaking of Hot Like Fyah – have you seen my latest video for my track “HOT LIKE FIRE” on my latest album? I filmed it in Jamaica earlier this year, just after performing at Dancehall Thursdays in Kingston with Peter Metro. Scroll down and have a look!
BIG UP all of my fans…and the DJs…and the Promotors…and all the people who have supported my work for the past 40+ years. FORTY YEARS! I’m grateful every day of my life for each and every one of you. I hope to see you at one of my shows this year. Please come find me and say… Hello Darling! BLESS UP!

2021 has been a big year of new projects for me as well! Get ready for a brand new full length album from Yours Truly to be released before the end of 2021. It’s called “I’m An African” and features collabos from several amazing artists. It will be one for the record books. And in 2022, my official autobiography will be released through Jacaranda. Cyaan stop Jah works!
