Throwback Thursdays: DJ Autograph on Spragga Benz’s “Good Day”

Words by DJ Autograph

Growing up in Jamaica, one of the things I always found particularly fascinating was the way that dancehall artists had to cater to their diverse fan base. A well-rounded deejay’s arsenal would have tunes for the girls, the “shottas,” and some culture tunes, so that he wasn’t pigeonholed as one kind of artist. Only a handful of deejays are able to balance all three of these categories successfully. One of the few to successfully generate hit songs in all three of these categories over the years is Spragga Benz. (In case you have any doubts, listen to him go though some of his extensive catalog on the Federation Invasion on East Village Radio when both he and Delly Ranx passed through the studio)
