Some 10 years after the release of "Marshall Law," Jamaican reggae artist Wayne Marshall has released "Tru Colors," a diverse 13-track collection under the supervision of Damian Marley on the Ghetto Youths International label.
Written mostly by Marshall, the long-awaited record covers a broad range of topics and showcases collaborations with veteran dancehall artists Assassin, Bounty Killer, Tarrus Riley and Capleton.
The standout track is the catchy anthem "Stupid Money," featuring Assassin. With a delivery that rides smoothly alongside Marshall's vocal, a hip-hop beat and children singing the hook, it's reminiscent of Jay Z's "Hard Knock Life."
The title track sees an honest Marshall calling out disloyalty and deceit among fake friends over a lively midtempo beat, and the rootsy "I Know" is a boastful tease to his peers showing his witty and competitive nature.
