Boom Wa Dis: Burro Banton Returns

Words by Jesse Serwer—

One of the most underrated deejays of the ’80s and ’90s and even 2000s, Burro Banton hasn’t made too many music videos but you can count on the ones he does make to be quite memorable. His latest collaborative effort with his longtime label home/producers Massive B, “Gangster Paradise” is no exception, equally solid both musically and visually. Perhaps the most notable feature of the gritty clip is the sight of the typically stoic Burro—maybe aggravated is a better way to describe his presence—getting loose with his feet. According to the Massive B YouTube page, “Gangster Paradise” will be on a Burro Banton Greatest Hits disc due out this month. Boom wa dis!
