    Hi all, ive just recently started liking reggae. I really like rap to, so i was wondering whether there was a genre for this type of music? (reggae rap?). I have listened to damien marleys album "welcome to jamrock" and it is awesome! Anyone know of any artists what have made similair albums to these?

    When I went to Jamaica last year I found they played "Pink" more than they did reggae. Just something random I noticed :P

    I think what you want is dancehall, which does do some combination of the two. Dancehall is, however, very different from reggae in terms of content. Maybe try Sizzla, Movado, Vybz Kartel etc

    Dancehall is good!
    Artists such as Kartel, Beenie Man!
    The best ones to listen to which have a reggae kind of beat is definitely Gyptian and Kevin Lyttle! There's loads of artists and tunes out there

    Or if you're interested in exploring the more traditional roots reggae scene, Steel Pulse, a band from Birmingham, is a good place to start. Interesting riddims combined with beautiful close harmony singing:cool:

    "Handsworth Revolution" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r_63...9806EEB8F02CC9

    and "True Democratie" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIV1zPTOcs8

    are my faves

    Peace
