Yellowman – Zungguzungguguzungguzeng

Wicked ruff raggamuffin has been settin’ the hi-fi ablaze lately. In heavy rotation is Yellowman’s Zungguzungguguzungguzeng LP containing nuff riddim fi di masses.

Backed by The Roots Radics and The High Times Band and comin’ straight outta Channel One and Joe Gibbs studios, Yellowman alongside Fathead, serve up verse pon verse. Errol T and “Jungo” Lawes take care of the engineering and production respectively making this platter hella classic.

Think you’ve never heard a Yellowman melody before? Think again. Give Wayne Marshall’s “Follow Me Now: The Zigzagging Zunguzung Meme” article a read for an incredibly thorough investigation into the classic riddim that has been used over and over for the past 25 years. Guaranteed you never knew the knowledge that he dishes out in that piece.
