Top Ranks: Kevin Lyons x Miss Lily’s Variety

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Last year visual artist Kevin Lyons staged a show of his work called Red, Gold & Green for Paris’ Colette gallery, inspired largely by the aesthetics of dancehall and Jamaican music culture. “The language is fantastic and so fun to illustrate and draw; words like “BOOMBASTIC” or  ”COLLIE WEED,” Lyons told our Eddie STATS in a Q+A. “The letters are fat and juicy.” Among the works was a series of posters grouping similarly named artists: “SHABBA RANKS. CUTTY RANKS. NARDO RANKS. TIGER RANKS. JUNIE RANKS”; “KING STITT. KING KONG. KING JAMMY. KING TUBBY. KING EDWARDS.”

Thanksgiving Throwback: DJ Gravy on Shabba Ranks’ “Trailer Load A Girls”

Words by DJ Gravy

This tune—and trailer-filled video—put Shabba on a whole other level, it’s one of my favorite records to spin and it’s one of Shabba’s biggest hooks that’s easy to sing along to for yankees. I mean you can’t have a hard time with “Girls, girls, everyday, from London, Canada and USA!”
