Cham Lawless Artwork

Last month, Cham voiced JA Productions’ (very Dave Kelly-esque) Overtime riddim and pretty much knocked it out of the park, shouting out Jamaica’s most lawless quarters, from Tivoli to Standpipe to Gully to Flankers. The song was so hot, apparently, that Cham has revisited the riddim again for “Portmore Anthem.” This time he takes a more focused approach, voicing lyrics that at times recall his last truly great tune, “Ghetto Story.” Stream both tracks below, and tell us in the comments which version wins.
