Included here are tunes offering chastisement of government officials and petty thieves alike. Rodney charges both the murderers in the community and the policymakers who allow guns to prevail on the ghetto streets.
Bounty pens exclamations on behalf of the Jamaican lower class, giving them a global voice. The so-called ‘Warlord’ praises our Heavenly Father and encourages youth to seek education.
The ‘5-Star General’ was instrumental in boosting the careers of dancehall stars like Vybz Kartel, Mavado, Aidonia, Baby Cham, Busy Signal, Wayne Marshall, Angel Doolas, Nitty Kutchie and Elephant Man, among others. He continues to give young artists a platform.
Rodney Price’s contributions to the culture have been immense. His legacy is one for the ages.

This mix explores the many moods of Beres.
There’s a time and place for everything. For every mood, there is a fitting reggae song. I believe in setting the right vibe using the right music. In that same vein, though Beres Hammond is known mostly for excellence in lovers rock, he is not a one-dimensional singer. Beres has many hits in the category of roots, reality, and culture. He has voiced songs simply championing dancehall and sound system culture. He has made political statements and showed his spiritual and philosophical sides on many records.
