''Halfway Tree'' is the second album by Jamaican reggae artist Damian Marley. The name "Halfway Tree" comes from his mother, Cindy Breakespeare, being from the rich part of town, and his father, Bob Marley, coming from the poor part of town, thus him being "a tree halfway in between the 'rich' world and 'poor' world." Additionally, Halfway Tree is a well-known landmark that marks the cultural center of New Kingston--the clock tower that stands where the historical eponymous cotton tree once stood is featured prominently behind Marley on the cover of the album. The album was released on September 11, 2001 and received the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. It was co-produced by Damian Marley and his brother Stephen Marley. There is a hidden track on the end of "Stand a Chance" at – 5:08. It is called "And You Be Loved". - Wikipedia
