Sizzla’s new album Ghetto Youth-Ology drops today, and it’s one of his best efforts in a while. All tracks were laid by the Firehouse Crew and there are lots of gems—”Premeditate” on the “Arena” riddim and “Stop It Right Now” come to mind—but “Gwaan Bear” is hitting me real hard today. Kalonji’s in the zone on this one. Just check the lyrics:

“From me navel string cut me nah lef’ the ghetto / Nuff ah them think in deh easy, but ah no really so / When we mind fi touch the gun me bredren holler no no no / Have we life inna we hand and we can’t too leggo / No touch the weapon we no ready fi dead yet / It won’t be too long for us to enjoy the best.”

Run the track…
