The fastest man in the world, Nike+ and VP records teamed up to put together a compilation for Nike+´s compilation series. Currently, it´s only available in the US iTunes store and includes a selection of

classic dancehall cuts (…), pionearing raggamuffin (…), and an exclusive track recorded by Asafa´s favourite VP artist, Mavado (…)

Another nice quote from Nike´s official promotional copy is this one:

Reggae and other Caribbean music isn´t just about getting irie and lounging on the beach. Reggae itself has several subgenres that are high-energy and pulse-quickening, including dancehall, reggae and ska.

No news there but good to see a major company other than Puma supporting Jamaican athletes and artists.
