8. Kabaka Pyramid

Kabaka Pyramid released music across several different genres and under several different monikers before finding his stride on 2011’s Rebel Music EP, which harmoniously combined reggae, vintage dancehall and ’90s hip-hop. Alongside peers and collaborators Protoje and Chronixx (the three are set to release a new tune called “Selassie Souljahz” alongside Sizzla soon) he’s a central figure in a new movement in Jamaican music that’s heavily influenced—but hardly limited—by roots reggae.
