Old-School Medley: Watch Busy Signal’s “Money Flow/Greetings (Ribbidibi)” Video

Words by Deejay Theory

Busy-Signal-Money-Flow-Greetings

Like the rest of the reggae/dancehall world (or so it seems), Busy Signal has been on a throwback kick, paying homage to past masters with tracks like the Shabba tribute “Bedroom Bully.” Busy always injects a fresh energy into everything he does, and it’s no different on his latest set of tunes, “Money Flow” and “Greetings (Ribbidibi), which channel the timeless energy of 80’s dancehall icons Half Pint, Super Cat and Eek-A-Mouse. Busy brings his signature flow to his interpretations of “Wa Do Dem” and “Greetings,” unleashing a combo that should be mashing up a dance near you anytime now, rrrrriiiitttteee???

Happy, 4/20: The Toppa Top 20 Reggae Weed Anthems

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Carlton Livingston 1

Sure, hip-hop has The Chronic, “I Got 5 On It,” and Meth and Red’s entire catalog, but when it comes to weed-smoking anthems, reggae is king. With literally tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of reggae weed songs to choose from, we selected some of our favorites and tapped the artist behind one of ‘em, Carlton “100 Weight of Collie Weed” Livingston, to count down the best of the best. Watch parts one and two of our Toppa Top 20 Reggae Weed Anthems countdown below. And if you’re not all smoked out after that, check our Top 10 of reggae’s most slept-on weed anthems.

LargeUp TV: The Toppa Top 20 Weed Anthems for 4/20, Pt. 1 (Hosted by Carlton Livingston)

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photos and Video by Jason Zucker—

Carlton Livingston

If you know your smokers’ anthems, you know Carlton Livingston. The St. Mary-born, Kingston-raised singer is responsible for one of reggae’s biggest weed tunes ever,  “100 Weight of Collie Weed.” And he’s got more where that came from: his “Trodding Through the Jungle” made an appearance on our Toppa Top 10 Slept-On Weed Anthems for 4/20 last year, too. After catching up with Carlton at last month’s Rice and Peas party, we brought him over to the The Kennel Recording Studio in Brooklyn to count down our Toppa Top 20 Weed Anthems for 4/20.

Dinner Theater: Sani Showbizz’s “Big Piece of Chicken”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Reggae lends itself to parody perhaps more than any other music, but there’s one man elevating the spoofing of it to new heights: Sani Showbizz. An ’80s-style skat chatter in the Eek-A-Mouse mold, Sani has previously given us the legend-making “I Know” (No. 4 on our Toppa Top 10 Fake Reggae Songs list) and starred in a hilarious sequence of webisodes with “Jamaican Damian Hirst” L.A. Lewis.
