Mavado nah play...

I've been thinking about the weird, born-to-be-on-a-soundtrack-to-a-flick-with-lots-of-guns-and-dudes-wearing-dark-sunglasses nature of some dancehall tunes over the past while. In the Pitchfork end of the year wrap up, I called this type o' thing "cinematic dancehall". Wayne Marshall, of wayneandwax fame, posted a bunch of dancehall meets action movie youtubes a minute ago, but I think this one (thanks to Seen) takes the cake (for the moment). Also, just reviewed Mavado's new record earlier today, so the Gully God's been on my mind.
