Throwback: Damien Marley – My Name Jr Gong

This was in heavy rotation back in my first year of college. Damien Marley’s distinct sound coupled with wild adlibs made this a session banger whenever it was played. It really is amazing how simple the lyrics are, basically explaining how he earned his title, but it still rings loudly even today. I don’t speak or understand that much patois, and some of the jargon used, but the feelings that this song evokes make me return to it often.
