Junior Reid ft. Dre - Don’t Play Me Dirty

Posted 8 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Cool & Dre
Album:
TBA

Over the past several years, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of collaborations between hip-hop and reggae artists.  One of the reasons for the partnership could be a trait the two genres share in common; neither of them can stand fakes, snitches, haters or police.  On his new single, reggae legend Junior Reid warns all of these groups “Don’t Play Me Dirty,” as he’s ready for the drama which may follow.  Miami producers Cool & Dre easily add a street-edge to their beat, enhanced of course by Dre’s rapped hook.  As Don’t Play Me Dirty gets increased spins on the street, the power of hip-hop to build cultural bridges will once again be evident.
