Spice Playlist & Chill


Spice has gotta be my favourite non-rap artist since The-Dream, yet she seems to gets zero coverage beyond specialist dancehall blogs or Lily Allen linking the So Mi Like It video on Twitter in a desperate attempt to try and justify one of the many occasions she was accused of racism. The female half of Romping Shop has the filthiest gob in all of music right now, but there's a poetic flourish to the way Spice talks about pum, batty and jumpin' pon cocky over Jamaica's best riddims. Collated a playlist of ol' girl's best tracks from the past couple of years for everyone who fuxwit music where the wet-sheets mania of lust coexists peacefully with the warm comfort blanket of lurve.


Sidenotes: no Bend Ova because Back Bend is the far superior tune; no So Mi Like It remix with Busta because Americans should be kept as far away from dancehall as is scientifically possible; no I Love You Baby because that backing track sounds like it belongs on one of Lily Allen's cod-reggae songs; and no download link because Spice has a babby to feed - go cop her shit on Amazon or the other place.

Compiled this bootleg of all Spice songs I could find via Soulseek after seeing the Needle Eye post on this blog (didn't knew her before). Played it a few times this summer while cleaning di swimming pool http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/UhB8pB6T/file.html

She did a song with Missy back in 2011.

Newer dancehall doesn't usually do it for me but ever since seeing the needle eye video I'm a fan

This you?

Si Mane Price said...

See, you don't get that level of artist/fan interaction at rap shows.

Ruben said...

Like A Man is pretty odd haha.

Si Mane Price said...

Probably makes more sense when you've seen the video.

Brendan said...

Can you refer one of these specialist dancehall blogs? I've been dying for a new source for Dancehall music

Si Mane Price said...

Boomshots.com is the best one I've come across.

Checking Audiomack's reggae section every week to see what songs are popular is probably the easiest method, tbh.

Man, Spice is the shit.
