This is two years old but Sach mentioned it recently and maybe there is a chance that you don’t compulsively monitor modern dance hall hits from Jamaica. Gone are the days when Bounty Killer and the Fugees played patty cake. Instead, there is his one-time protege Vybz Kartel, who dealt with the murder charges hanging over his head by rapping about Clarks. You should read this piece by Jesse Serwer in the Guardian about the impact registered within the Jamaican economy. Clarkflation. Robberies. Wallabeemania. Clearly, Rae and Ghost missed a remix opportunity here. It’s never too late.
