Kingston, Jamaica born Spragga Benz is the subject of Shotta Culture – A documentary about the life of this influential dancehall artist and the unforgiving streets he came from. Born into a large family of modest means, Shotta Culture chronicles Spragga’s rise to fame, as he overcomes personal obstacles, political strife and violence to become one of Jamaica’s most influential artists. Shotta Culture also explores the 2008 murder of Spragga’s son, Carlton Grant, Jr. at the hands of police. Providing never before seen interviews with witnesses and candid discussions of the ongoing violence claiming the lives of Jamaica’s youth.

The album will have dancehall legend Spragga laying his voice on top of classic reggae dub. Watch the video for the title track after the jump. (via Nah Right)
