9. Reflection Eternal feat. Mos Def and Mr. Man (of Da Bush Babeez), “Fortified Live” = U-Roy and Hopeton Lewis, “Tom Drunk”


Here we have two collaborative tracks that really embody the essence of the record labels that put them out: the classic singer/deejay combo of “Tom Drunk” on Duke Reid/Trojan, and the O.G. Mos/Kweli/Hi-Tek (and Mr. Man) collabo “Fortfied Live,” from Rawkus’s first Soundbombing.
