Time for a bit more of a contempory Reggae feature. Richie Spice aka Richell Bonner is from Rock Hall, Jamaica a suburb of St. Andrew. Spice has his roots in a musical family that includes his older brother Pliers (from the deejay/singer duo Chaka Demus and Pliers of "Murder She Wrote" fame) and singer Spanner Banner (best known for his mid 90s hit "Life Goes On"). I was first exposed to his music when I heard "Youths Dem Cold" on a mixtape by brooklyn based DJ Eleven. DJ A-Trak also coincidently does a Lil Wayne Spice mashup on his work with The Rub on Sunglasses is a Must Live as well.
Spice's most recognizable song is "Earth A Run Red" which was originally featured on Spice's debut album Universal in 2000. Here is a new Richie Spice track off the Greensleeves 2008 Spring Sampler check it out.
