Asher D & Daddy Freddy – ragamuffin hip-hop

Posted on: March 15, 2010

The first ever Ragga Hip Hop fusion did almost not take place. Asher D just has returned from Jamaica to the UK and wanted to record a Dancehall influenced tune with another MC. But the guy backed out at the last minute and instead the Producer brought in Daddy Freddy as a last minute replacement. Daddy Freddy gained a lot of hits and fame in the 80s Jamaican Dancehall scene, toured the USA and went at the end of the decade to the UK.

“Ragamuffin Hip-Hop” is a sort of coincidence and created 1988 a new style of music that was a fusion of Jamaican ragga and hip-hop. The title track was sampled uncountable times and raised the scale of UK Hip Hop and showed off Jamaica’s Ragga scene to the masses. A rough record with strong beats that keep flowing and lyrics that keep going, which are still able to capture you and still deserve attention.

Never stop delivering that impressive Dancehall material. Don’t stop, do it.
