    • Big Youth – Dub Road
    • 1. Long Road
    • 2. Dub Road

    The 18th Parallel presents another scorcher with DJ superstar Big Youth. On a rockers one drop riddim led by the funky touch of drummer extraordinaire Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, Big Youth proves that he’s hotter than ever and true to his roots providing conscious lyrics and legendary gimmicks. ‘Long Road’ will take you into a trip to a Rockers movie dance party where style and fashion are as eccentric as the DJ on the mic. “Move ya!”
