Throwback Thursdays: 77Klash on Tiger’s “No Wanga Gut”

LargeUp and Jamaica-born, Brooklyn-based deejay/producer/man-about-town 77Klash go way back. LU founder DJ Gravy has been holding Klash down at live shows for years and editor Jesse Serwer gave him some of his earliest ink, back when he dropped his debut single “Brooklyn Anthem” in ’06. And it was actually through that article that Jesse and Gravy first linked up. You see, Klash was our own six degrees of separation before most of us LargeUp dudes even met. Given his vivid memories of ’80s-era JA and his bold fashion sense, we tapped our dude for a tribute to Tiger, the dancehall sensation who burst onto the scene in the mid ’80s with game-changing, animalistic style of deejaying and some of the wildest fashions even Jamaica had ever seen.
