According to the Baby hitmaker on the popular +44 podcast, he revealed that he felt unworthy to have his vocals on the same track as the legendary reggae icon.
“When I had the email, I almost passed it on, and not only out of respect, but I felt like I didn’t deserve to put my vocals next to a legend. I was really hard on myself.” He said
Adding that when they are thinking of leaving the project, “My manager said it was a great opportunity. However, my artist side was thinking more about the art and not the opportunity.
He explained that when he was given the original track recorded by Bob Marley while in the studio, he began to think and imagine what he could do.
“It was a very spiritual moment when I was listening to that (Bob Marley’s vocals).”
Sarkodie said he wrote four verses for the Stir It Up remake in hopes of picking the right one that deserved to be on the same song as Bob Marley.
“I tried it but it’s hard for the new generation to keep it so censored, you want to say what you feel”
He explained that he was careful about everything he wanted to say to ensure that he did not disrespect the legendary musician in any way and lived up to him.
