Attention hip-hop heads, this is how you keep it real. Stephen Marley builds his new track The Traffic Jam around a beatbox sample, a melodic verse by Damian Marley, and little else. Marley’s minimal production makes the song sounds like it was recorded during an afternoon cipher outside the corner store. This is the real sound of the streets, the sound of the traffic jam.
