Previous definitions are good, but miss out on one thing.

the "I and I" also marks a distinktion between the body (that which can be seen) and the spirit. This is reinforced by the similarity of sound between "I and I" and "eye and I".

The expression "I and I" thus expressedly includes all of ones being.

Also it can be used straight of as a possessive pronoun.
"I an I don like it!";
"Is tha fe I an I?";
"It belongs to I and I".

Also means "I, with God's help" or "I, with God-in-me". Often used in place of "me". Because the people's Identity was destroyed in slavery, Identity is very important in RastafarI -- so I gets capitalIzed a lot. They pronounce the I's strongly in reggae songs. Emperor Haile Selassie I is not "the First" but "Haile Selassie *I*."
