See this fantastic blast from the past, when Youthman Promotion and Black Star do their thing, back in 1986. This was truly a golden era when it came to soundsystem MC’s which set the standard for years to come. See a young Daddy Freddy representing Youthman Promotion!
The 80s brought the reggae scene a range of big artists, some of whom still inspire the music today. One example is Daddy Freddy, seen as a young man in this video, who is still very active in reggae today.
Soundsystem culture has since this era grown to cover the world, with literally hundreds of soundsystems in the US, Europe, and Asia. Even with this huge expansion over the past 20 years, many still look at the 80s soundsystems for inspiration to shape their own.
