Sugar Minott, “Wicked Ago Feel It”
Sugar-Minott-Wicked-Ago-Feel-It

In the early 1980s, while Sugar Minott was recording with many of the top producers in Jamaica, he was also recording in the Bronx with Lloyd “Bullwackie” Barnes, who provided a rockers reworking of Studio One’s Real Rock riddim for Minott to warn the “wicked” that what they sew, they shall soon reap “inna dis time.” The song was released in 1982 and did well enough that Wackies released an LP by Minott by the same name in 1984. —Kieran Meadows
