Shabba Ranks - As Raw as Ever(1991)

When dubwise (often described as reggae's equivalent of rap) evolved into dancehall in the 1980s, Shabba Ranks became one of the style's leaders. Most dancehall has come out on small independent labels, but in the early '90s, Epic saw how popular it had become and signed Ranks. Hard-edged, abrasive and tough, As Raw as Ever thrives on rhythm. Listening to cuts like "Gun Pon Me" and "Fist-A-Ris," one can hear the impact that classic dubwise artists like I-Roy, U-Roy, King Tubby and Big Youth had on dancehall. But while those greats could be very melodic, Ranks usually has little or no use for melody or harmony. Ranks is joined by artists ranging from KRS-1 to Maxi Priest on this dancehall gem.

bring back mad memories, i had that shit in cassette, i found it but it was in low quality but i stil liked it, if anything it made it sound more dusty and gritty sounding, my favorite track is housecall, the album version not the video version.
