Damian "Junior Gong" Marley - Welcome to Jamrock

"Out in the streets, they call it MURDER".

The self titled track sets the tone for this release. Dark raggae with hip hop infused, deep grooves, and highly danceable and infectious. This of course is one of the children of Bob Marley, perhaps the greatest raggae musician to ever walk the planet and one of my personal favorites.

At times this is almost traditional ska/raggae ("All Night"), at other times completely hip hop ("Beautiful").. but the album still doesn't lose the feel of the music. It's very catchy and easy to listen to no matter what kind of music you like.

I never could get into Ziggy Marley that much, so I'm glad that I could get into this. All of Bob's children are musically talented, so his legacy will live forever. And big ups to Damian for being his own man while still respecting the roots from where he came.

If you like raggae, hip hop, or bob marley, this is one for you to check out.
