Some proper honest-to-goodness dancehall. It's entirely a-cerebral stuff, but there's something great fun about hearing people recite crazy lyrics in Jamaican patois. I haven't heard much of Vybz before, and he's quite talented. "Badda dan dem by far/Badda dan dem by near" kind of sums the entire track up.
2. Turbulence - "Notorious"
Some more dancehall, but this time with a sort of RnB hook in there as well, which Vybz' track didn't have. This is a performer I've never heard of before, and while the production is a bit wonky, I'm surprised I haven't picked his sound up before. Good stuff.
3. Richie Spice - "Marijuana"
Why not have some more reggae, while you're at it? This is still dancehall-based, but there's a much rootsier feel to the track. I've heard a bit of Richie's work before, and his voice is definitely a standout. More good stuff here. Just remember that this man's brothers are Pliers and Spanner Banner among others…

I love the lyrics, they're not singing nonsense like certain hip-hop artists.
Their songs are written with heart and brain. Their lyrics contain friendly stuff. And mostly it's just about the people being friendly and nice to eachother. Which, in my eyes, is just great.
I've started with Gentleman. That was the time I started to love the Reggae-Music.
Now he's still one of my favorits. Some others are Lutan Fyah, Fantan Mojah, Morgan Heritage... and many many more...
I do have too many artists to list them all.
Well that's about it.
So tell me your reasons =)
