Since Barrington Levy first commented on his home country’s problems with violent crime on classic track Muderer, things have only gotten worse; currently, Jamaica’s homicide rate is fifth highest in the world. On his latest single, Watch Dem (Murderer) Levy updates the relevant as-ever cut for the year 2010. Joining the headliner over Platinum Camp Productions’ head honcho Daddy Biggs’ string-driven, hip-hop-infused Caribbean groove, West Coast icon Snoop Dogg and This Is Why I’m Hot rapper MIMS contribute guest bars that, while not entirely in line with the original track’s socially conscious message, come packed with enough engaging flows and cash-centric tough talk to keep listeners entertained. Digging this genre-blending reinterpretation? Levy’s forthcoming full-length, It’s About Time, has yet to receive a solid release date, but reggae-lovers can rest assured we’ll bring you the latest news and tunes.
