    When Bob Marley wrote "Concrete Jungle," he was broke and stranded in a foreign country. While writing the song, he most likely reflected upon his time in the impoverished neighborhoods of Jamaica. One of the lyrics says, “No chains around my feet But I’m not free.” This line depicts Marley being ensnared in the troubles of poverty with no way out. Furthermore, "Concrete Jungle" focuses around the ghetto-like slums of West Kingston, Jamaica. West Kingston was often called the “Jungle” or “Concrete Jungle.” During his song, Marley focuses on the poverty and brutality that has plagued West Kingston, and implies his desire to spread his messages to audiences other than Jamaica.
