Rebelu has been an underground mainstay of the Chicago reggae scene since the early 2000s ... Regularly popping up at shows and dances to nice up the session with his pitch-perfect vintage deejay styles.
Jah Scoob has an even longer tenure, emigrating to Chicago from Jamaica in the 1980s and regularly rocking mics and toasting parties all over the Chicagoland area.
We at HAAL are thrilled to debut Rebelu (and our first Spanish/English language 7") with a powerfully politcally charged digi-style 7" - Rebelu and Jah Scoob trade the mic back and forth in true sound system style, keeping the vibes high and the riddim flowing - while lyrically bouncing around topics, the focus is on everyone to ¡Despiertate! (Wake Up!) and be aware of all the injustice in the world!
The flip features veteran King Kong spititng lyrics in a similar vein - 'What More' ... can the wicked man do? Two tuff versions on one little disc!
