I want to give many thanks to the artists and creatives who played a part in the recording of the track. Thank you to General Trees for laying down his rap and vocals, and Jessie “Dubmatix” King for lending your creative vision and mixing. Thank you to Everton “Pablo” Paul on drums, Jackie Jackson on bass, Glenroy Samuels and Garfield Stoddart on guitars, Bruce Skerritt and Bernie Pitters on keyboard, as well as Sonia Collymore and Marcia English with vocals.
