Mark Morrison ft. Beenie Man & Crooked I - Father Forgive Them

DJBooth_logo2x

Since Mark Morrison's '90s heyday, the Return of the Mack hitmaker's career has been rocked by numerous legal and personal issues, punctuated by sporadic, well, returns to the game. Through all his troubles, however, the UK singer has always considered himself an Innocent Man – and on his latest single, he drives the point home by quoting the last words (according to Luke) of history's most famous martyr: “Father Forgive Them, for they know not what they do.” Backed by his and co-producer SP Soul's string-laced instrumental, Morrison lets listeners know that that he's back from the netherworld, this time (hopefully) for good. Supporting the headliner as he makes his grand re-entrance are dancehall heavyweight Beenie Man and Cali underground mainstay Crooked I, the former dropping two spiritually-themed verses in his trademark patois, and the latter pronouncing himself “the illest in the West” on the back end. Those who like what they're hearing can find more on the artist's Popeye-parahrasing I Am What I Am LP when it drops this fall.
