Named for the 1971 single by Dave and Ansell Collins that was the first reggae song to top the UK charts— and later sampled by Special Ed for his 1988 classic "I'm the Magnificent"— Double Barrel features hip-hop staples from Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mos Def and Talib Kweli, BDP, Ghostface, and the Diplomats. Experts in both genres, Corey Chase and DJ Gravy blend these tracks with classic reggae artists like Super Cat, Max Romeo, John Holt, Super Beagle, Sanchez and Toots and the Maytals. If hearing Mad Lion's "Take It Easy" ever sent you to the record store looking for some Yami Bolo, then this is the mix you've been waiting for.
