hmm, clearly not my cup of tea. to me, it's some sort of pathetic attempt at emulating that skrillex & damian marley tune.

Completely different, I'd say. The Skrillex was a Stephen Marley vocal over a dubstep rhythm, this is 3 artists singing and toasting over an updated cut of the None Shall Escape rhythm in a quite conventional style.
I like it, won't hold my breath for a release on 45 though.

Agreed, Ringo, I don't really see the resemblance to the Skrillex tune. Always love Stephen Marley's productions, so crisp and heavy.

What's going on with Papa Levi there? surely he should deserve a credit for the mi god mi king lyrics. Doesn't really sound like him, I wonder how they've got that effect. Also, he mentions Stephen Marley in the lyrics so it can't be a straightforward sample.

maddest comedian a Kenny Everrett in a Marley mash up style and fashion.

what a wicked tune ruined by that obnoxious **** ! colossal fail, i don't even know who that's aimed at? roots fans will hate the end bit, and the good reggae bit goes on too long for a screechie dubstep dj to play without his/her crowd baying for 'the drop'. if ever there was tune that needed an edit its this

Not so bad an atmospheric tune,until the last part drops: dubstep with pretty fast formulaic deejaying.
Nothing to really get so excited about,imho,sometimes i would like not too feel so jaded about what some people are raving about here. Never been so mad about what all these marleys do. I miss the 90's,when heaps (hundreds ?) of more solid dancehall roots tunes used to drop at shops every week. Many such tunes are totally untrendy now, but some day,some will bother to hear them again.Also doubt that this singer ever slept on a rockstone.
I love the Blade Runner/Prometheus analogy ! :lol:

In answer to my own question, according to Rodigan it is Stephen 'ragga' Marley deejaying at the end and paying tribute to Mi God Mi King.

The more I hear it, the more I love it. looking forward to the album.

Pity Kenny Everett was a Tory, even taking to the stage at Nasty Party rallies.

I never found Everett that funny anyway. I think he and Gary Numan were the most 'credible' celebrity supporters the Tories could muster in the eighties. After them they were down to Jimmy Tarbuck and Jimmy Davidson and that bloke from Dollar. Didn't stop them winning four elections though.

Still, the sweetest singer may well be Sugar Minott.
