TIPPA IRIE [UK All Star]
BLOOD DUNZA / HEAVY HONG KONG / ULTIMATE BAND CREW / MC WEBBER AKA RADDAM RAS / OSHI
Tippa Irie was born to Jamaican parents in South London, gaining experience as a hard-hitting dancehall toaster on his father’s Mobile Reggae Disco Sound system while still in high school. After graduating, he worked on Saxon International, Britain’s best sound system. After a series of 12-inch singles on the Greensleeves label, he released his first album, “Is It Really Happening to Me?”. Thanks to the single, “Hello Darling,” the album launched his career. Mad Professor produced his next album, “Rebel on the Roots Corner”, for Ras Records.
It took him almost four years to follow it up, but Mr. Versatile was highly regarded and kept himself visible in the reggae scene. Three years later, the critically-lauded “I Miss” appeared on Resin Music. He has collaborated with Alexander O’Neal, Long Beach Dub All Stars, and Chali 2na and many more. He enjoyed his biggest success to date in 2003, when he co-wrote Black Eyed Peas’ worldwide hit track, “Hey Mama”. He has also collaborated with the London based avant-dancehall outfit, The Bug, on the single “Angry” from the album, “London Zoo”. In 2010, he appeared on the BBC Television panel show, “Never Mind The Buzzcocks”, in the identity parade round. His latest release is “Stick To My Roots” (2010) done together with the Far East Band and also making a guest appearance on 2013’s phenomenal anthem single by Congo Natty’s “UK ALL STARS”.
