Description

In 1993, Tony Rebel's popularity in yard led to a contract with Columbia. Unfortunately, 'sign of the times' did not perform well in the profit oriented US market. As always, it featured Rebel spreading nothing but conscious vibes, but it seems that the US just wasn't ready for a 'cultural revolution'. Tony Rebel's name was more apt five years ago; he was indeed a rebel, rallying against the slackness and guntalk which permeated the arena. Now, however, due much in part to his voice, not to mention that of the great Garnett Silk, a number of prominent artists such as Capleton, Buju Banton, and Terry Ganzie among others have found Selassie I. One can only hope that Rebel's continued presence allows this trend to expand...

Queen Ifrica born Ventrice Morgan, began her career in 1995 after shining at a local talent contest in her hometown of Montego Bay, Jamaica. This eye-opening experience eventually led to major stage performances in her country including the esteemed Reggae Sumfest as well as a union with Tony Rebel's Flames Crew in 1998.
