Dropping something for the ladies from all the way in Austria is Dancehall Artist/Producer Jami Dread. Titled “Privilege” and produced by Jami for his label Lyrical War Records, we hear him speak to the ladies who know they stand out from the rest, and possess the kind of beauty that will have men leaving their current lady to take care of her.
