Gifted by koffee


Gifted-album-cover-art-koffee

Koffee combines traditional reggae with modern flourishes and hip-hop sensibilities on Gifted, reminding us that rap's roots are deeply entwined with Jamaican music. While "Lonely" may make even the most ardent purist smile, "Defend" unleashes dusty boom-bap production, and "Shine" layers sunny guitars over tittering hi-hats and strong 808s. The musical backdrops on the album range from breezy to absorbing, but Koffee's performances are consistently bewitching.

Grammy Award-winning Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall artist, Koffee brings an addictive vibe titled “Gifted”.
