DJ Jazzywhut! "Boomshotz!" (Hip-Hop-Reggae Mix)

Boomshotz! is a dope Hip-Hop-Reggae mix from DJ Jazzywhut! In his own words, he shares "One of my all time fave genres was Hip-Hop/Reggae when Jamaican Reggae met with boom-bap Hip-Hop beats (technically known as Raggamuffin or Ragga) in around 1986, but it really blew up in the 90's and was blaring from speakers, jeeps, discmans and clubs with the likes of Bobby Konders, Super Cat and Cutty Ranks becoming household names and many Hip-Hop MC's, DJ's and Producers getting involved. It sadly didn't last overly long as a genre but there are still some artists making this type of music and I hope we see a resurgence at some stage. I gathered some of my all time fave tracks here and all I ask is that you turn it up loud...." The mix features tracks from Ini Kamoze, Super Cat, Lil Vicious, Poor Righteous Teachers, Buju Banton, Da Bush Babees, Patra, Kali Ranks, Apache, Fu-Schnickens, General Levy, Cutty Ranks, Nubian Crackers, Sister Nancy, Shabba Ranks, Born Jamericans, Capleton, and lots more.
