Ghetto Youths Releases “Gang War Rhythm” featuring Damian Marley

Kicking Off GHETTO YOUTHS INTERNATIONAL Ramp-Up,

All-Star One-Rhythm Compilation Set To Be Released Today

(NEW YORK, July 17, 2007) With eleven versions featuring fourteen of dancehall’s biggest names, the GANG WAR RHYTHM is the fresh, tough champion sound of Summer, 2007. Starring on this album are today’s masters of dancehall, including three-time Grammy winner Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, with his metaphoric “One Loaf of Bread (Something for You);” and two of the hottest newer hands in dancehall, hardcore singer Mavado and three-man vocal threatVoice Mail, joining Vybz Kartel.

A impressive roster of dancehall’s most-honored veterans also take part in the “Gang War” compilation, including Bad Boy recording artist Elephant Man, Bounty Killer, Sizzla Kolonji, and Wayne Marshall. With its portentious symphonic depth, propulsive drumming and a nagging sampled woodwind hook, the “Gang War” rhythm has had DJs and dancers worldwide ringing the alarm from the dance floor ever since the first versions were released to the dancehall club underground earlier this spring.

The GANG WAR RHYTHM comes to the American hip-hop scene with an impeccable double pedigree: the creator of the rhythm is Trevor “Baby G” James, son and protege of Lloyd “King Jammy” James. Additionally, the album is released in the U.S. market by GHETTO YOUTHS INTERNATIONAL, and is run by two Bob Marley sons, Stephen and Damian. With brother Julian also on the roster, the Ghetto Youths International label is launching a major expansion of its market presence this year, with albums in preparation by reggae singing sensation Javaughn and world-renowned rapper Mr. Cheeks, to follow the GANG WAR RHYTHM compilation. The first album released through Ghetto Youths International’s U.S. distributor, Universal, was the 2002 Grammy-winning Halfway Tree, by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.

The GANG WAR RHYTHM collection is completed with the instrumental of the original track, and a “Gang War Medley,” featuring album tracks “juggled” by Damian Marley and Baby G. An all-star video shot to the medley version is currently in production. The GANG WAR RHYTHM various-artists album is set to be released July 17, 2007 on Ghetto Youths International/Yard Vybes Entertainment, distributed by Universal.

GANG WAR RHYTHM Tracklisting:

1) Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley – One Loaf of Bread (Something For You)
