Damian Marley: Halfway Tree

"Halfway Tree," Damian Marley’s Grammy Award-winning Reggae CD, takes its name from the Kingston, Jamaica, neighborhood that sits between the city’s privileged and poor. It’s the aptly named recording by Bob Marley’s youngest son, who grew up in both worlds but follows in his family’s musical footsteps with songs and rapping that seek to lift oppressed peoples’ spirits and dignity.
