Welcome To Jamrock (Live At Sumfest) (4:43)

About this track

From Wikipedia>

In a highly charged performance, Marley covers issues such as crime, poverty and political corruption as part of the harsh reality of “Jamrock”, Marley’s personification of Jamaica, as opposed to the Jamaica advertised as a popular tourist destination. Marley laments Jamaica’s high crime rate and unceasing violence, demanding that those in charge do something about it. In this sense he carries on the legacy of his father before him, in inspiring Jamaicans to stand together.

Both the rhythm (known as World Jam) and the hook are sampled from the 1984 track “World-A-Music” by Ini Kamoze - the original rhythm from the Ini Kamoze album was provided by Sly and Robbie.

The track also samples the bassline from Zap Pow’s hit song “Reggae Music”. An edited version of “Welcome to Jamrock” was featured on the popular video game franchise FIFA 06.

The song was also on the playlist of the video game Midnight Club 3, but on the remix version.

There are many remixes to this song. One features G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo in a diss towards the rap group D-Block. Another features The Notorious B.I.G. Finally, a remix called “Welcome to My Block” features 2Pac, Nas, and Scarface. The Game released a diss song towards Tony Yayo and 50 Cent called “Body Bags” which samples the chorus, while a remix featuring 2Pac, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre is also available on the mixtape circuit.
