Best Dancehall DJ

Post by suppressor » Thu Jul 30, 2009 8:28 pm

I'm currently riding Cutty Ranks at full volume and wonder if this man has been, or ever will be, beaten for raw roughneck delivery, rude riddim and rasping lyrics. Maybe Reggie Stepper came close?

What other Dancehall do you all recommend?

Supercat, Ninjaman, Sizzla, Capleton, Bounty Killer and Shabba Ranks are on an equal par with Cutty in my book. Though I do agree he is a roughneck fo' sho'.

Yep, Cutty is a don, he is responsible for my interest in dancehall, ragga and more hardcore forms of reggae.

True, Cutty A BADMAN!
There is something about his style that I agree takes top rank.

But there are tons of great dancehall artists rising all the time

Vybz Kartel
Assassin
Turbulence
Anthony B
Richie Spice
Tippa Irie
Mega Banton
Merciless
Ward 21
Albaroze

Etc.
Me Badder den de Badbwoy Darthvader feared.
