BONUS TREAT: Capleton โ€œMi Foodโ€
capleton-mi-food

Food is the โ€œstaff of life,โ€ as Capleton proclaims at the opening of this Goldfinga-produced track from 2000. Unlike the other tracks in our smorgasbord of tunes, this record is not a linear tribute to Jamaican cuisine because Capletonโ€™s food is ganja (though he does make numerous references to food of an edible variety as well, leaving the track open for interpretation). The desire for weed gnaws away at Capleton on โ€œMi Food,โ€ revealing an individual you wouldnโ€™t want to cross, similar to the hunger-pained actors on Snickers commercials who turn into an angry Joe Pesci from Goodfellas, or a fired up Robin Williams coaching a football team. – Richard โ€œTreatsโ€ Dryden
