9. Super Cat, “Dance Inna New York”

Super Cat moved from Jamaica to New York in the late ’80s, strongly influencing his work in the following decade, particularly in regard to the incorporation of hip-hop (Biggie, for one, got some of his earliest exposure on Cat’s “Dolly My Baby” remix) Years before that, though, in 1982, he recorded this tune after receiving a favorable response to his music here.
