After bursting onto the scene in 2009 with songs like "Dread", "Roll" and "Arguments", Protoje's new 14-track album, ”The 8 Year Affair", shows the respected lyricist moving closer to traditional reggae vibes. Guest appearances by Romain Virgo, Tessanne Chin, Toi and Chris Watts add a fresh melodic element to Protoje's signature sound while prodcuer/Godfather Don Corleone's oversight helps to anchor the project. BigUpRadio listerns will surely remember the big hit "Kingston Be Wise" which was held the #1 spot on Big Up Radio's Reggae Dancehall Chart. "This Is Not A Marijuana Song" and "Who Dem A Program" are also standout tracks.
