Dancehall Joints: Mad Lion "Take It Easy"

Right next to the Supercat joint in terms of classic status, this track will probably be immortal, unlike Mad Lion himself:

KRS-1's beat still bangs twelve years later (this dropped in '94), and Mad Lion still sounds just as gruff. Even if it was just a performance, shit came together on this cut, at least. If you haven't heard this, absolutely essential, as it was close to genre-defining in terms of hip-hop/dancehall fusion, albeit from a discredited "dancehall artist". If you have heard it (as I'm sure 99% of the visitors here would), here's the full twelve in digital form.

Includes "Take It Easy" (Vocal, Instrumental, and Intro Edit Mix) and "Big Box of Blunts" (Vocal, Instrumental, and KRS-1 Mix).
