Words by Jesse Serwer—
We’ve been raving about Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica since we first heard the album at the top of the year. The dancehall tunes on disc one, the new versions and updates of classic Jamaican festival songs on disc two, and the classic reggae poster-inspired cover art all come together to form one of the best reggae album packages in recent memory.
The double-disc release is finally out in stores and on iTunes this week and, to celebrate, we’ve got two a pair of prize packs of assorted Sweet Jamaica goodies to give away. Each winner will receive an autographed copy of the CD and an autographed poster from Mr. Vegas, and his and hers T-shirts from our friends at Miss Lily’s Variety. We’ve got yellow men’s tees with the Sweet Jamaica cover art and, for the ladies, “Bruk it Down” girl’s tees (one purple and one yellow: winners will be able to specify their preference)—so now you can rep the tune that’s been making you sweat in the clubs all year long.
