9. Mad Cobra feat. the Geto Boys-Dead End Street

Houston gangster pioneers the Geto Boys had East Coast roots, and a Jamaican member, in Kingston-by-way-of-Brooklyn’s Bushwick Bill. Perhaps it was that connectionโ€”or maybe it was just the Geto Boys’ epic gangster-nessโ€” that led to an appearance on “Dead End Street” from dancehall star Mad Cobra’s major-label debut, Hard To Wet, Easy To Dry. The Tony Kelly-produced cut also received a remix from the hands of Salaam Remi.
