6. Shabba Ranks feat. KRS-One “The Jam”

KRS-One was always ahead of the curve when it came to blending dancehall and hip-hop; fittingly, he was the first MC of note to team up with Shabba, the ultimate hip-hop/reggae crossover artist. Released in the midst of Shabba’s high-profile “Trailer Load A Girls/”Mr. Loverman” period, “The Jam” was one of the first (if not the very first) videos by a dancehall artist to garner regular play on MTV.
