With a career spanning over two decades, the infectious MC Rebel has good authority to compile a retrospective of tracks on his legendary Congo Natty label.
Known to his mates as Michael West, Rebel began his rise to fame with Brit rappers Double Trouble and the pop hit ‘Street Tuff’ which went Top 10 in the UK. In 1991 his ‘Black Meaning Good’ album which featured reggae legends and dancehall stars such as Barrington Levy, Tenor Fly and Dennis Brown crooning toasted reggae/breakbeat riddims to great effect and his reputation as a purveyor of quality sounds was born. He then founded the Tribal Bass label and produced a string of jungle anthems. ‘Born Again’ is out this month through Congo Natty will cover the years from the beginning to his latest cuts and be released with a bonus DVD, 2 CD’s and as a 6 LP package.
