Papa Rosko Releases New Song “Folsom Prison Blues” featuring Toots Hibbert
- South Florida based multi-genre recording artist Papa Rosko released his third single “Folsom Prison Blues” on October 6th from his upcoming self-titled debut album.
The song is a reggae-style cover of the Johnny Cash's “Folsom Prison Blues”. The song was written in 1953 and recorded in 1955 by Johnny Cash. He re-recorded in 1968 and reached No. 1 hit on the country music charts.
This time, Papa Rosko worked with Jamaican singer-songwriter Toots Hibbert, but unfortunately Toots Hibbert died due to complications from COVID-19 on September 11, 2020. He was 77.
Papa Rosko shared on social media, “My third single, a collaboration with the late, legendary Toots Hibbert is out now! This song is a reggae-style cover of the Johnny Cash classic "Folsom Prison Blues." Toots famously wrote his own prison song “54-46 That's My Number,” which gets a shout out at the end of the song. We will miss you Frederick Hibbert, you brought so much joy to so many people.”
The debut album contains 10-track, featuring guest appearances from Toots Hibbert, Gyptian, Yanelisa and AJ Brown.
