13. Vybz Kartel feat. Russian โ€””Jeans and Fitted”

straight-jeans-and-fitted-vybz-kartel-russian

This song does something that might be overlooked if you’re not paying attention to the lyrical dialogue between Vybz and producer Rvssian, who appears as a lyricist on this track. While “Straight Jeans and Fitted” might seem like a regular party tune about fashions, the song with Vybz reppin’ Portmore and Russian claiming “Uptown,” was a major statement about people from ghetto and privileged areas meeting on common ground. โ€”DJ Gravy
