Boston Jerk strikes again

Sean Paul

When us writer types sit around talking about what's really good, Wayne Marshall's name just seems to come up a bunch. Yeah, dude has been in the Globe and the Phoenix before, but always on the other end of the pen. So we're psyched to publish Wayne's criticism (which you've all no doubt grown to know and love on his blogs) in an old-media stylee, rub-off ink and all. This week, he uses recent albums by Sean Paul and Junior Gong as a jumpoff for talking about the legacy of tension between reggae's roots and its international reach. Wayne switches to DJ mode and throws down at his monthly "Wicked Wicked Thursdays" night at River Gods tonight.
