Rebel Mc – Tribal Bass [1991]

Rebel Mc, taking a break from the Pop-Rap dirge of his Street Tuff era, joined forces with Barrington Levy and Tenor fly and dropped this breakbeat monster. Huge breakbeat and a cheeky clip of Enya mixed up with ragga lyrics from two absolutely legendary mc’s make this a firm favorite of mine.

From Discogs
The 80’s popster turned proto-jungle revolutionary was born Michael West in 1965 in London. He joined Double Trouble in the early ’80s with Michael Menson and Leigh Guest, releasing the ska-pop hit “Street Tuff”. Rebel MC gained fame in England as a pop-rapper, but by 1991 he had released Black Meaning Good, an album that presaged jungle with hardcore techno married to dub basslines and ragga toasters such as Barrington Levy and P.P. Arnold.
