    If you like the Damian/Nas album why not try Damian's other 'big' album "Road to Zion".. also try having a scan at some of the music in this forum..... if you find an artist you like the sound of I'd be happy to point you at some of their stuff.
    (try the stickied thread at the top of the forum page, there are some DL links)

    Jah Mason, Junior Kelly, Sizzla, Capleton, Determine, Turbulance, Warrior King, Beres Hammond, Bounty Killa, Scare Dem Crew (if they still exist lol..."Bad Man NAh Dress Like Girl!!" lol)...many many more...these are more hype up artists but if you want roots reggae then there's too many lol....Don Carlos, Barrington Levy, Black Uhuru (sp), Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer etc etc


    PEACE

    Ranking Dread and Ranking Joe.

    Dread is sick. Joe came first tho and youll know where Dread gets his style from. Dreads crazy tho, he was one of the most dangerous yardies of his time. Rumored to have killed 4 cops and then fled to Canada, eventually got arrested then sent back to jamaica and was poisoned in jail. and you would NEVER guess from listenin to his music.

    Love a Dub is an amzing song.
