No matter how many times you listen to Bob Marley or watch Cool Runnings, you can’t be Jamaican (unless, of course, you are actually from Jamaica). But, if you turn this Smif N Wessun cut up high enough, it’ll feel like you were Born and Raised in Kingston. The Jam Rock vibe is established by production duo Beatnick & K-Salaam‘s reggae boardwork and guest artist Jr. Kelly’s passionate vocals. Smif N Wessun, too, give their approach an island makeover before settling back into their signature gritty, New York flow. Born and RaisedDuck Down.
