2. “Ghetto Red Hot (Hip-Hop Remix)”

The original “Ghetto Red Hot” and its OG video helped introduce Super Cat to the mainstream urban market back in the early 90’s but it’s the hip hop remix that really exploded him. And explode this tune does, right from the introโ€”When I first heard “Some tan so back and some ah rally back” with its sirens, screams and gunshots I was pretty sure Supercat was the illest dude ever. Lyrically, “Ghetto Red Hot” touches on famous Jamaican gangsters and a plentitude of ghettos areas reminding us how ‘dem did hot.’ Super Cat could just shout out the names of hoods for hours and it’d still never get old. โ€”DJ Gravy
