You may wonder why a rap blog is getting worked up about the release of a reggae documentary. Besides the fact that rap and reggae have strong ties, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is a legend in music culture. That’s no hyperbole. The man inspired countless acts and provided popular samples, as evidenced by the track playing in the trailer. This documentary seems like something to look forward to. It’s narrated by Benicio Del Toro so there’s a good chance the narration will sound cool but let’s hope he won’t reprise his role in Usual Suspects for it.



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
