Various Artists Weed A-Bun Vol.1
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Jet Star
The illustrious world of dancehall and reggae is as unifying as it is revolutionary. Given the political tensions of the past century, it‘s about time a collection of odes to the therapeutic gift of ganja has been bestowed upon us. Packed with contemporary and renowned DJs and singers, these tracks summon a variety of styles in homage to queen cheeba. Luciano‘s infamous version of Peter Tosh‘s "Legalize It" contrasts well with the rugged thumping from Beenie Man and LMS. The inspirational, herbal torch has been passed through a multitude of musical genres. Weed A-Bun definitively celebrates what keeps heads nodding.
