..Dancehall Reggae Meets Rap In New York City. "Includes Shinehead, Super Cat, Kenny Dope, Shaggy, Fu Schnickens, Rayvon, Rankin Dan, Red Fox, Nikey Fungus, Super C and more. 100% Dynamite NYC is jam-packed full of New York's finest dancehall reggae and hip-hop sounds! From the 1980s onwards, New York developed its own dancehall and soundclash scene away from Jamaica. Nearly all the artists involved were first and second-generation Jamaicans living in New York who took both reggae and hip-hop as their points of reference. Starting with the first ever DJ and inventor of hip-hop, Jamaican-born Kool Herc, artists have continued to join the dots. This underground scene led to a number of artists becoming famous -- Shaggy, Shinehead, Fu Schnickens, but many of the artists featured here remain unknown except to hardcore NYC dancehall fans. 100% Dynamite NYC features a stellar line-up of New York/Jamaica's finest -- everyone from Kenny Dope to Supercat and a heavyweight selection of the finest reggae/dancehall/hip-hop tunes you will ever hear!"
