- Artist: Snow
- Track: Shame
- Producer: Kent Jones, Cool & Dre
- Album: None (Promo Single)
Though he scored a massive hit with 1992's Informer, Canadian reggae musician Snow wasn't able to parlay that success into lasting acclaim, and has largely flown under the radar since. Which is a damn Shame, because the man had—and still has—a lot to offer. With his latest single and DJBooth debut, he sets out to make up for lost time, reflecting on the path he's taken since his breakthrough smash and bringing listeners up to date on his activities. Jamaican mainstay MyKal Rose provides vocal support, joining Snow over Kent Jones and Cool & Dre's leisurely reggae backdrop. This record is just a loosie, but hopefully it marks the beginning of a new and productive phase in the headliner's musical hustle. Whatever the case, we'll keep you posted.
Update: Snow recently cemented a partnership with the cancer organization Karen E. Mumford Cancer Foundation (KEM), a national nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance and debt relief to cancer patients for their revolving expenses. In addition, it strives to broaden general awareness of the impacts of cancer by way of counseling, presentations, and research funding (www.kemfoundation.org). Snow will donate 100% of the proceeds from the iTunes sales of Shame to the foundation, in honor of his wife who passed away from cancer.
