*CLASSIC* Sizzla "Da Real Thing"

This record is one of the best reggae albums to come out in the past 10 years. VP Records released it in December of 2002, but it really didn't seem to blow up until later in 2003 and into 2004.

This record is solid all the way through with production by veteran Bobby "Digital" Dixon and instrumentation interpretation of some old Studio 1 riddims by the likes of Sly & Robbie, Dean Fraser, Dalton Browne, Benjy Myaz, and many more.

Sizzla has his usual raspy, righteous delivery on each track, complementing the smooth vintage sound of each song's version.

I'm not sharing the entire album, but just some of my favorite tracks from it. I definitely recommend this record. As Vybz Kartel would say, it's "timeless."
