“Fantastic Reggae from the US Virgin Islands”
First out as a single in October, 2019, and included on his album “Rebel With A Cause”, released a couple of weeks ago.
38-year-old rasta Delyno Brown has been working reggae all of his adult life and, from what I’m led to believe, ‘Rebel With A Cause’ is his seventh album of new music in that time. Several guests appear, and he’s joined here by fellow Saint-Thomas islander’s R. City (aka Rock City), a brotherly all-rounder duo of Theron ‘Uptown AP’ Thomas and Timothy ‘A.I.’ Thomas.
“Streets Keep Calling”, the lead single, is the standout, following an all-too familiar theme of the struggler-hustler vicious-cycle; a timely reminder that this is a widespread problem, not confined to Kingston. Criticism for the greedy system and the full-of-shit governor noted.
This is Pressure’s second LP for I Grade Records outta St Croix, where he’s generally backed by the label’s in-house production unit, Zion I Kings, with Winta James (Damian Marley, Protoje) stepping in for this particular track.
Too much pressure busts pipes. It’s got to stop.
