Audio: Wyclef x Pitbull x Jim Jones x Bounty Killer, “My Generation”

December 6, 2011

Words By Nico Simino

DJ Absolut of Heavy Hitters fame has released a new track that looks like a who’s who of Caribbean musicians. “My Generation” features verses from Wyclef (Haitian), Pitbull (Cuban), Jim Jones (part Puerto Rican and Aruban) as well as Jamaica’s Bounty Killer, with each sharing thoughts and reflections on growing up inย their respective hoods. Bounty, who has a history of strong collaborationsย with American rap artists, definitely shines on this track, delivering a solid patois-laden verse effortlessly switching his flow as the beat switches up. Wyclef touches on his experience as an immigrant growing up in Flatbush, Brooklyn, then moving out to Jersey, while Jones and Pitbull opt to reflect on the more illegal aspects of their past. Check the song out for yourself below to see who best captures the spirit of their “generation.”
