Bounty Killer feat. Noreaga, “Next Millenium” (1998)
After the relative success of My Xperience—which didn’t break Bounty commercially in the US, but certainly made him a valuable commodity in hip-hop circles—the Five-Star General delivered another rapper-heavy LP for the follow-up, Next Millenium. Hip-hop producer Knobody (of “Can’t Knock the Hustle” fame) does a pretty good job on the title track of seamlessly merging dancehall and hip-hop elements into one fluid beat. N.O.R.E. too mentions Clarks in his verse: by now, this was protocol for rappers collaborating with dancehall artists, and Bounty specifically.
