6. Stephen Marley feat. Capleton and Sizzla “Rockstone”

If the songs that leaked this year from Stephen “Ragga” Marley’s highly anticipated album are any indication of the quality of Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life, then we have a lot to look forward to. One of those songs was a three-the-hard-way combo between Ragga and the Bobo Shanti powerhouse tag-team of Capleton and Sizzla, and all three are in tip-top form on the high-energy track. Sounding hauntingly similar to his father as ever, Stephen sings the hook here, and also treats us to some some serious deejaying over a surprising dubstep-inspired drop towards the end. This EDM flip of the beat takes the track just over the top, making it possibly Marley’s biggest anthem since “Traffic Jam.”ย โ€”Kieran Meadows
