Damian Marley – ‘Set Up Shop’ | Music Video

Been waiting on this video for a while and it’s finally here. Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley unleashes fire with “Set Up Shop,” his street heater in the form of a dancehall anthem that’s already been setting reggae charts across Europe alight since its release late last year.

“Set Up Shop” is all about encouraging the youth from garrisons (ghetto areas) to make something for themselves (get it now — “set up shop”?). You know rappers telling us how much money they have is supposed to be inspiring; well, this is in an everyday equivalent for the youth in developing countries.

This video really should have dropped before “Affairs of the Heart,” but what’s done is done. This song is such a vibes. I don’t care — Damian Marley is one of the best in the world right now. You hear the control he has? You hear the lyrics with message? You hear delivery? Man. Jah blessed the Marleys.

Jr. Gong hasn’t decided if it’s from a forthcoming EP or LP, but “Set Up Shop” is available for purchase here for those in the UK and here for his US fans.
