LKJ is one of my all-time favorite reggae artists. The words come first for Linton, who is a dub poet. My friend Tous turned me on to his poetry and music all the way back in the halcyon days of high school. I was fortunate to catch LKJ live in Madison, Wisconsin, five or so years ago on what turned out to be an otherwise bizarro night. The tune "More Time" is a favorite off of the 1999 album of the same name. It is perfect for the beginning of another work week... listen to the lyrics. Dig it.
