5. Vybz Kartel – Money Mi A Look

We could have filled out this whole list with just songs by Vybz Kartel, and we wouldn’t have been far off. (The same could be said for any given year in dancehall for the past decade, pretty much.) “Bicycle Ride,”  “Keystone” on the Voice Note riddim, the list goes on and on. “Money Me A Look” was perhaps the most quotable, starting with Kartel’s amusing list of Jamaican grocery items at the start of the track (“Mi know about sardines… bully beef… chicken foot…), helping to make True Loyal Records’ riddim by the same name one of the year’s most ubiquitous biggest dancehall soundtracks. —Jesse Serwer
