Super Cat – Ghetto Red Hot

Super Cat released his single “Ghetto Red Hot” back in 1992 and was released on Columbia Records.  The remix single was produced by Bobby Konders and Salaam Remi and was included on his fifth studio album “Don Dada“.

Back in 1990, I got deep into Dancehall music.  I would listen to Shabba Ranks, Buju Banton, Mad Cobra and Capleton where some of my favorite artist but nothing compares to Super Cat and his Hip Hop remixes.  He had a remix track with Kris Kross for their mega-hit “Jump“, but nothing compared to the “Ghetto Red Hot (Hip Hop Remix)” that appeared on the b-side of the album version.

The remix includes to major samples.  It includes James Brown’sBlues and Pants” and “It’s Your Thing” by Lou Donaldson, which is the same beat Brand Nubians used on “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down“.  Then you have the rapid fire lyrics from Super Cat that will make you search the internet to see what the hell he said!  The track is major dope and can make you dance and at the same time make you do the “bogle move”.  When the video dropped, I almost joked on my gum looking at them booties!  DAYUM!

The remixes continue with “Dolly My Baby” that had Mary J Blige, 3rd Eye, Puff Daddy and the Notorious BIG on the b-side remix and don’t forget “Dem No Worry We” with Heavy D.  Don’t sleep on Dancehall and on Super Cat!

 

[Intro:]
Now special dedication to all dancehall dogs
Dedicated to all top dog celebrity crew
Man call Tony Kelly, man called Robert, and Wild Apache riding through
CURFEW!

[Chorus:]
Some tan so back, and some of dem a rally back
We a rudebwoy yout’ an’ we nuh take back no chat
Some tan so back, and some of dem a rally back
But we a rudebwoy yout’ and we nuh take back no chat

If a Bellevue you come from, we sendin’ you go back cause,
