Wicked double disc compilation of all the best cuts from dancehall don Cutty Ranks - the original bad man of reggae!

Before hip hop became all about Scarface-inspired gangster tales, reggae music was blazing the trail with lyrics depicting the brutal side of life with tracks such as Cutty Ranks' debut single 'Gunman Lyrics' from 1986 setting the lyrical agenda for years to come, as MCs vied to come up with ever-more disturbing tales of violence and gangsterism - providing the musical foil to the brutal action adventures that fill our TV screens and cinemas - but with a gritty Jamaican twist. Whether you see such violent lyrics as cautionary, celebratory, or something else, they have become the norm, and this is where it all began: a crucial slice of reggae music history!
