Heds and Dreds, Pt. 2: Exclusive Interview with Smif-n-Wessun

Words and Interview by Jesse Serwer, Photos by Fubz

Yesterday, we launched our new “Heds and Dreds” column by breaking down Smif-n-Wessun’s contributions to the cultural exchange between hip-hop and reggae, from “Sound Bwoy Bureill” to now. Today being the release date of Monumental, the don gorgons‘ long-awaited full-length album with Pete Rock, we’re going even deeper, chopping it up with Tek and Steele about their respective introductions to reggae, the unavoidable influence of Caribbean culture in Brooklyn, the mystery voice on the “Sound Bwoy” intro, and more. Yesterday we also premiered “This One,” a sequel of sorts to “Sound Bwoy Bureil” featuring Steele’s little bro Top Dog (of OGC and “Sound Bwoy Bureil” fame) and LU fam Jahdan Blakkamoore, but it’s so forward-worthy we had to run it again. Stream it below if you haven’t already copped Monumental, read on for the interview and if you’re in NYC, swing by the release party/photo exhibition at Tammany Hall on the Lower East Side.
