air raid siren machine gun firing etc.

been really into early buju banton as of late. its a shame that songs about killing gay people can be as wonderfully produced as they are bigoted.


any recommendations?

haven't listened to or played them in quite a while, but still love the bare bones stark and grim hard ragga riddims of the 1990s in stark contrast to the still somewhat friendly and upbeat sounding 80s first wave digital beats. i guess many criticized this style as too masculine and aggressive... and the early 2000s brought the fun grooves back a little bit, but informed by the heaviness of preceding decade. I'm sure this is a partial view in many ways... how do others see the evolution?

Id also recommend this mix:

http://www.sws-sound.de/shop/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=40&osCsid=60394ca94fc81632626d0a1e2bd4d473

Its worth paying for actually - though you could mail em and try and blag a digital copy. I still listen to it regularly though Ive had it for years.

Is there a website I can buy mp3s from 1996-97?

Also, anyone know a tune that went

"Do you wanna ride in the front of my Lexus, flex with us to Texas
Do you wanna ride in the front of my Benz, yes go get your friends"

or something like that?
