I had posted the videos to Terry Lynn´s first two singles and I pointed you to Wildlife!´s Cristle Castles remix of “Knight Crusade”, but somehow I totally forgot to check out her album. On Friday, I finally did and what can I say – it´s epic. Not only does Terry spit and tell stories like “M.I.A. in real” (Markus Staiger on rap.de), she can also sing like your favourite gospel queen. As it´s Sunday, I decided to share the final track of “Kingstonlogic 2.0″ – which is Terry´s version of “Rivers of Babylon” – originally recorded by Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton from The Melodians and covered e.g. by The Skatalites and Sublime amongst a bus-full of others.

Also make sure to get Aaron LaCrate and Debonair Samir´s Gutter variations of Mr. Vegas’ “Oh My Gosh” which are back in stock at TTL, V.I.P. Star vendor Busy Signal´s cover of  “I Kissed A Girl” over at The Fader and the Roots Rockers 2nd “Clubwise” mix now available at SoulForce – another classic from the only German sound I would book for my wedding.
