Drop Leaf Riddim

Spending 3 months in South Florida did more for my blackness than watching Roots while wearing a Malcolm X baseball cap in 1992. Seriously...the reggae coming out of Jamaica lands in Fort Lauderdale simultaneously. I consider Ft. Liquordale basically as Lil' Jamaica. That said...if you haven't heard the Drop Leaf Riddim, you haven't heard REAL REGGAE in 2005. So many cats bless this riddim, from the timeless T.O.K., to Maxi Priest, to Sizzlah, to Jah Cure. But I found Jah Cure's story a little more bloggable...

longin for you to be out, kid

This cat is not going to be let out of prison till 2011, but managed to record "Longing For" by sneaking recording equipment into a Jamaican prison. Talk about real?!?! Download it.
