The Big Gundown - Reggae Inspired by Spaghetti Westerns 2004

It so happens I never posted reggae here until this post. This has been the hottest summer since 1998 around here so I guess the time is right. Without Jamaica I couldn't be a hip-hop fanatic so it's nice to see the U.S. give something back by the way of the Italian Western. You know how ridiculous those hip-hop westerns looked compared to the superior urban warrior movies? Trust me, Jamaican artists didn't make the same mistake. Will a few understand what I'm talking about? Or is it just the 100F/38C days getting to me? It's a rhetorical question. Don't even try to answer. Do listen to some good songs about money, love and death backed by cool reggae.
