Sounds purty good to me. A comment on youtube stood out to me though: "Is Eddie Murphy taking himself seriously or is he trolling ? o_O"

Doesn't seem like he's trolling though. Reggae is the mature black man's music.

Probably from someone that doesn't realize he was a singer back in the day too?

its not bad, not bad at all. reggae is gonna blow up in the next couple of years in the mainstream, and while this track is decent I cringe to think of some of the shit that is gonna be pumped out.

I don't know much about raggae, or any at all.

But I was expecting a mediocre song. This was anything but mediocre, and that was basically my point.

I'm a HUGE Eddie Murphy fanboy. I mean, I wanted to be Eddie Murphy when I was growing up. I can recite every word from Delirious and Raw... and pretty much every decent movie he's every been in.


That said, the song is good, but I'm finding it real hard to take Eddie serious as a reggae artist... especially with an appearance from "Snoop Lion". There's something to be said for authenticity in music, especially in the reggae genre.

I don't see why not. If they were fronting as full blown rastas then I might take them less seriously. I know Snoop has sort of adopted those ideas but he is still acting like Snoop.

Reggae as a genre is like any other genre. If you like it try your hand at it. Why not? Crossing genres is where new styles of music is made.
