Friday Flashback: Cutty Ranks

For this episode, we take you back to the sounds of Cutty Ranks, a lyrical don in his own right who is very influential on the Dancehall, Hip-Hop and Jungle/Drum n Bass scenes worldwide. I've had the privilege of hanging out with him several times and the extra added bonus of DJing (spinning that is) for one of his shows here in Houston during the mid-nineties. Today we revisit his classic "The Stopper" that was featured on the punanny riddim, first single from his album by the same name on London-based Fashion Records in 1990. Profile Records picked up the tune for U.S. release in 1991 and the 12 inch single contained Hip-Hop remixes by Louis Russell.
