Listen to the laid back summertime jam here http://youtu.be/OlHz3ZjNwVw. Of his inclusion in “Words,” SLIGHTLY STOOPID’s Miles Doughty shares, “Ras MG’s knowledge in music and life makes it easy to work and blend so many styles together. Fusing blues, hip hop, reggae and anything else he can get his hands on, he elevates the rhythms allowing us to capture the vibes.”

“Words” is available now on iTuneshttp://smarturl.it/RasMGWords.
