Those who don’t follow the reggae scene/culture closely would probably know the name Inner Circle and it’s association with the TV show Cops. Their biggest mainstream hit today is “Bad Boys” circa 1987, and the B-Side “Sweat.” In hindsight, I used to dread (pun intended) those songs, and still do to this day.
Today, we get a very nice update to Jacob Miller & Inner Circle’s 1975 Jamaican hit, “Tenement Yard” -a roots-ier cut- complete with a verse from reggae newcomer (sort of) Chronixx. 40 years later and the song still sounds fresher than ever. Peace to Boomshots.
