    So who shouldnt be on there and who should??? Who should be higher and who should be lower???

    I know in their time they was considered reggae but UBfucking40 is so fucking shit I cant stand them fuckheads they shouldnt be on the list AT ALL!!!!!! Let alone higher than Garnett Silk....

    hahaha there are a few that would cause argument for sure, i just had a quick peep -I'll have another look at this tomorrow, there are a couple (not many) that I've not even heard of so it will be interesting to look them up.

    thats the thing tho bruv....red red wine is for pussys who dont smoke weed lmao them whiteboys mashed it up proper with their silly songs....not a fan at all tbh I think they was bandwagoners...I think Sublime made better 'reggae' init lol


    True that Lucy theres nuff I aint ever heard of and some that were pioneers for sure but does that fact alone make you one of the greatest??? well actually yea it does I guess lol if you was the first doing it your great even if someone later did it better, coz they was only building off what you started init....I dunno....I bet Gleem knows at least 2 chunes from every single one of these artists lol dude is a complete reggae encyclopedia lmao I need to get him to post more on this board

    weed doesn't do it for me sometimes -

    If something's really bothering me and I want to forget my mind for a minute, red red wine. The weed will only make me meditate on it.

    A girl leaves you, and weed will make you think of the million and one reasons she could have possibly left for.

    the list seems a little dated also slightly lacking on the dancehall front imo.
    got me like "where is Hugh Mundell at??? how come x is above y etc"
    I might make a feature of the list Sifu... maybe do a vid off the list a couple of times a week with a couple of words on the artist...

    Yeah get Gleam's ass up in here!

    Yea you should do that would be dope to see some featured artists once a week or something....


    No thoughts on UB40 tho??? lmao just check their music...the keys are rigid as fuck the drums have no real swing to them its like casio keyboard reggae for whiteboys lol I hate it...one 'classic' song dont make you on the list....the fact they made reggae appeal to normal white folks who to this day will say they like UB40 but have no idea who Garnett is annoys the shit out of me....its like saying I like rap but I only listen to Vanilla Ice lmao


    Yellowman is a bit high on the list aswell...an originator for sure but he was never that good reall and was quickly surpassed in terms of lyrics....

    I'm going to start this next week hopefully (the breakdown of the top 100)
    if it doesn't get any comments, maybe it really is time to say bye bye to the Reggae forum.
