RADICAL, a collection of songs revisiting Sizzla Kalonji's early years with producer Philip 'Fattis' Burrell's Xterminator label, will be released April 15 by VP Records.

According to a press release from the Queens, New York company, the 16-track set "unearths musical gems from the Xterminator label sessions between the early '90s and 2000".

The title track, What's Wrong With the Picture, Hardcore and Burn Dem Schism are songs Sizzla recorded before getting mainstream acceptance with the Praise Ye Jah album, also produced by Burrell, who died in December 2011.

Sizzla was a key member of the formidable Xterminator camp which flourished throughout the 1990s. At the time, the label's top acts were Luciano, Mikey General and the Firehouse Crew.
