Mos Dub


Back when I was a teenager, I watched the cult Jamaican film, The Harder They Come, religiously with its stellar soundtrack that first introduced Reggae to the world, even before Bob Marley had come onto the international scene. My brother recently gave me the heads up on the album Mos Dub, available for free download. It is the work of one Max Tannone and mixes the works of Mos Def — one of my favorite Hip-Hop artists — with some classic Reggae hits from the 70s, including two songs from The Harder They Come soundtrack: “Johnny Too Bad” by The Slickers and “Shanty Town” by Desmond Dekker. So if you are a fan at all of Hip-Hop and Reggae oldies, check it out.
