World Premiere! Vybz Kartel x Dre Skull “Jamaica”

June 20, 2011

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


Vybz Kartel’s new Dre Skull-produced LPย Kingston Story drops tomorrow and LargeUp got the greenlight from Dre and his Mixpak records crew to premiere ย the first track from the album, a vocal intro called simply “Jamaica.” Though clocking in at only 2 minutes and some seconds, the haunting synths and dreamy chat of “Jamaica” are the perfect teaser for the album, which is driven by Dre’s orchestral electronics, riddims that bring out a far more melodic Vybz Kartel than we’re used to. Listen below to see what we a talk bout. While you’re up, catch “Go Go Wine” here, “Mi Remember” here and then pre-order the LP here (full tracklist after the jump).
