UK-based dancehall producer Reece Dry is getting major props for creating a trap dancehall-styled song, Rich Badness, which merges Tuggawar from the UK and Jah Tee who hails from Central Village, St Catherine.

“The response has been incredible! People love the international flavour because Tuggawar is in the UK and Jah Tee is in Jamaica. Half the video was shot in Jamaica and half in England, to give the viewers on each end of the world a view of how things are in those worlds,” said Reece Dry, who is principal of El Gringo Records.

Rich Badness was released on the El Gringo Records label on April 12, 2022 via all download platforms worldwide.

The UK-based Tuggawar, who hails from Hackney, London, said he is very excited about the early buzz of Rich Badness.

“Check out the video, look pon the swagger, yu think a Mick Jagger. Big up Reece Dry for Rich Badness. We did this amazing song and the video is absolute[ly] amazing, with scenes from Central Village and London,” said Tuggawar, whose real name is Neofytos Neofytou.

Tuggawar is one of the most controversial white, reggae-rap artistes from the musical melting pot of North London. Dancehall artiste Jah Tee is an emerging talent from Jamaica.

Reece Dry is amped about the potential of the project.

“We’re getting major feedback on the ground and in the dancehalls. Tuggawar is an experienced artiste with the biggest names in dancehall. Jah Tee is an artiste that’s ready for the big stage, and his style and flow are phenomenal,” Reece Dry said.
