    It is a disambiguation wiki page. So colloquially it may be used to describe any type of Jamaican music.

    and i'm saying that's wrong.

    Bashment =/= reggae.

    At least not anymore. Maybe in the 70s when it was much more similar.

Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, Konshens etc all come out with some absolute junk sometimes. At the market in Birmingham you can get some really good old school vinyls.
