Wild Apache Rides Again: Watch Supercat’s Surprise Appearance at On Da Reggae Tip

Every year as New York City gears up for Labor Day Weekend, Massive B’s Bobby Konders and Jabba along with the Tri State’s leading urban radio station Hot 97 throw a monstrous annual concert dubbed On Da Reggae Tip. The genre’s biggest artists perform for an always-enthusiastic audience, and Friday night’s edition was no exception. Reggae and dancehall giants Stephen and Damian Marley, Mavado (who brought out surprise guest Nicki Minaj), Cham, Mr Vegas, Konshens and many more performed.

But it was during Shaggy’s set that dancehall’s most elusive personality not only showed face—with some seriously long hair and beard— but dished out classics like “Vineyard Party” and “Ghetto Red Hot.” That’s right, the Don Dada, Original Wild Apache and Boss of all Bosses, Supercat, tore down Hammerstein Ballroom last night, and everyone who missed it can all cry together, or maybe hope that he returns to the stage more frequently as it’s been years since his last performance. Catch Hot 97’s footage from the scene below:

Boom Wa Dis: Burro Banton Returns

Words by Jesse Serwer—

One of the most underrated deejays of the ’80s and ’90s and even 2000s, Burro Banton hasn’t made too many music videos but you can count on the ones he does make to be quite memorable. His latest collaborative effort with his longtime label home/producers Massive B, “Gangster Paradise” is no exception, equally solid both musically and visually. Perhaps the most notable feature of the gritty clip is the sight of the typically stoic Burro—maybe aggravated is a better way to describe his presence—getting loose with his feet. According to the Massive B YouTube page, “Gangster Paradise” will be on a Burro Banton Greatest Hits disc due out this month. Boom wa dis!
