[EP] SMIF-N-WESSUN - "Born & Raised"

Few groups from the hardcore hip-hop side of things have embodied the roots rock reagge vibe like Boot Camp Clik forerunners Smif-N-Wessun. With that in mind it comes as no suprise that the duo goes all out with the ragga/dancehall sound with the help from superb production team Beatnick & K-Salaam on the just released "Born & Raised" EP. Over smokey bass melody grooves Tek and Steele spits thought provoking verses while guest toasters like Junior Reid, frequent collaborator Jahdan and Jr. Kelly provides extra flavor to the project. "Born & Raised" is out now on Duck Down in several cool packages, including a hoodie, a 7" vinyl, the album on CD, etc. If you got Spotify you can stream the entire project below a well, and make sure to check out the brand new video for "Born & Raised" (Ft. Jr. Kelly) which just dropped in promotion of the release.

UPDATE - Unlike the Spotify version you see below, the Deluxe Version also includes a sick live rendition of "Sound Bwoy Burreil", two instrumental versions and the fat Tek / Ayatollah collaboration "All Massive" (originally released on Tek's 2006 street album "It Is What Is").
