Stick To My Roots

Tippa Irie

Jacaranda Books Art Music

The autobiography of Tippa Irie, Stick To My Roots tells the reggae musician's incredible story — from his trail-blazing beginnings in Saxon Sound International to the Grammy Award-nominated “Hey Mama” with the Black Eyed Peas.

Titled after his 2010 hit single, the book will cover 40 years of Tippa's prestigious career: from the first sign of talent as a child in South London and family members encouraging him to enter local talent competitions, to making his first record and becoming the powerhouse and Reggae-scene legend he is now.

It's a story full of dreams, music and hope, but also the deep traumas and tribulations that Tippa experienced throughout his life, and how music helped him to move forward.
