It was three years before Big Youth followed up his foray into the jazzy Afro-beat territory of A Luta Contuna with a new album, Manifestation. A much less adventurous set than its predecessor, the ragga-fired record is fueled by big, fat beats that give the entire album a deep rootsy atmosphere. The sole exception is "Turn Me On," a seven minute funky monster that could have done with some serious editing. That's the only slacker-themed track within, and sits uncomfortably next to the sublime "Mr Right." One of the best raps Big Youth has delivered in years, his toast takes on an almost hypnotic quality, steaming along to the beat, an outpouring of astute observations, echoed phrases, rhymes, and reason.

The consummate cultural toaster, the DJ ruled the dancehalls across the '70s, and although his career flagged in the next decade, he returned with a vengeance in the '90s, and continues to have an impact on both his own nation and beyond. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, on April 19, 1949, Manley Augustus Buchanan had his moniker...
