Justice Da Great
Marvin Halsall (Born in December 1973) is a Jamaican Hip-Hop / Reggae artiste who is widely known by his professional name “Justice Da Great”. Justice Da Great is a name of power that holds a special meaning; it is a name that is not easy to forget.
Justice had an interesting childhood in Jamaica as he grew up in the three Parishes of Manchester, St. Ann and St. Catherine. He lived life of a typical Jamaican boy lyming with his friends and enjoying the festivities of the Island. After attending Primary School he moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This move added perspective to his life as he was now exposed to a new culture that was different from what he was accustomed to. While in Florida, he attended the Boyd Anderson High School which is an urban High School in Broward County. He would sing for his family and friends for amusement purposes which is where he gained his confidence to perform in front of an audience. During his time living in Broward County, there were two (2) significant incidents that made becoming an artiste realistic; one which involved him being shot and the other involved a close friend he lost in an unsolved murder case. This friend of course was a lover of conscious music and was one of the main reasons for him to take his music more seriously. It was only a matter of time until this multi- talented Singer decided to showcase his “Great” skills and talents to the world and thus, “Justice Da Great” was born. As the prophecy is being fulfilled (psalm 89: 14) Justice was born to be one of the greatest superstars the world has ever seen. The Reggae/Hip Hop Singer describes his lyrics as conscious and still relevant to today’s society. For music enthusiasts, worldwide and the sobriquet, Justice Da Great has become life. It is a name that represents classic roots, words-sound and power. Justice has stormed the music scene with his captivating lyrics and the essence of traditional Reggae.
