Chris Wayne and Abbashanti Band-Craven Choke Puppy Dog

‘A ruff and tuff cut by Chris Wayne of the Youthman Promotions crew from his LP Freedom Street, a joint Wackies and Sugar Minott production. It was released both on the stateside Wackie’s label and by Tachyon, a Japanese label that worked with Wackie’s extensively for the Japanese market. Over a one-off ethereal computer riddim we are warned of the consequences of biting off more than you can chew, using the classic ‘craven choke puppy’ Jamaican proverb that Bob Marley also drew inspiration from. —Spliffington
