When I think of UK reggae, artists such as Tippa Irie, Burning Spear, Daddy Freddy and Aswad come to mind. Tippa Irie is as integral to the UK reggae music as is UB40.
A skilled and fluent dancehall mc and dubwise producer in his own right, few come close to the calibre of the man that is Tippa Irie.
Social commentary shines forth in his lyrics which are ALWAYS delivered in fine and coherent style. Here is a reggae vocalist that is distinctly British in style while honouring the Jamaican roots.
