Lee Scratch Perry – 420 Recap
While Joey Bada$$ was in the Masterpiece Ballroom this night. You still couldn’t help but check out the Other Side at Cervantes. I mean who wouldn’t wanna see Reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry!
The dude is a straight up reggae OG! Lee Perry burst on the scene with a brand new sound, inventing a genre of music that would come to be called Reggae while mentoring a young Bob Marley and gaining international recognition as a record producer and solo artist. The Black Ark studio became a hotbed for the production of Reggae and Dub music and made Scratch quite wealthy and famous.
Still not impressed? Oh well.. You would’ve had to be there to experience it for yourself. The vibe was chill the club was filled with Good people. That sweet godspread amongst us it was time to jam down to some Reggae goodness. For the most part LSP played alot of originals. Tunes like “money come and money go”, “panic in Babylon”, and many others. We grabbed a spliff and joined the crowd for a rocking night of reggae funk!
