Justice JU-o21 (199x)
Dem No Bad Like We A
I don't know much about him, but this two-sided single I found has some killer early 90s hip-hop flavored riddim tracks. His vocal trick is reminds me of Major Mackerel in a way but it's put to good use on these cuts. The A-side is a hip-hop remake of the Chase Vampire riddim and the b-side is a hip-hop flavored version of the same riddim as Mad Cobra's 'Merciless Bad Boy' & Jimmy Crazy's 'Know Bout Gun' but I'm sure there are more versions out there.
Here's a bonus jungle tune that reuses the lyrics from 'Dem No Bad Like We'.
There is nothing you can do that make me run away from this clash yah...
Permit Fi Gun - Super Cat 198? King Jammy's
Nuff Man A Dead (7" version) - Super Cat 1990 Wild Apache Prod.
Murder Dem - Super Cat 199? ???
Super Cat was on the radio recently in the tri-state area speaking on recent run-ins with the police and attempts on his life. He mentions how the music industry is exploitative and dangerous, as apparently he is the victim of an elaborate scheme to steal his identity and publishing. Super Cat is indeed one of the few reggae artists with his own label and was prolific in the early 90s on American major labels. He also claims that Shabba Ranks was duped into selling his publishing for JA$10,000 when it's worth several million US$ now. However, Cat himself has had his fair share of problems and controversy so publishing may not be the issue, there are still many unanswered questions that the ever secretive Cat has never answered publicly (to my knowledge).

Ninjaman - Gun Bogle Junjo & Volcano 1992
Flips the bogle dance theme that's was started by Buju Banton's 'Bogle' (i don't know if the dance was named after Bogle the dancer who was murdered a few years ago or Paul Bogle). Anyway, this variation of the dance requires a Rambo-like arsenal since every move described involves shooting a different gun.
Ninjaman - Mi A Go Ride Xterminator 1992
The hilarious intro gives way to threats against Capleton, Mad Cobra, and Buju Banton while a random Slick Rick sample breaks up the 808 machine gun effects. Listen for the burial trumpet midway through followed by a xylophone.
Ninjaman - Pickney Sinting J.R. Productions 1992
He says this is not a counteraction but a correction, questioning the literacy of those who would rock to Shabba's massive 'Ting A Ling' writing it off as kid's stuff. "Booyaka, booyaka, him a big idiot"
