In ‘I.C.E. At The Door’, Sanya N’Kanta makes a statement of radical compassion to all those who are facing this daily. Not satisfied to look away from I.C.E.’s ruthless methods, he broods over a beautiful beat, calling for justice, humanity, and overall, common decency. Sanya N’Kanta uses his platform for good; he follows in a long tradition of other reggae artists who have done likewise.
