“Every year we look to celebrate Caribbean music and this year is no different. We decided to carve out an era, which so many of us love and reminisce on all the time. This era was groundbreaking for dancehall and reggae music in many ways, and that is the 90s era. We had some of our biggest artists in dancehall during the 90s era many of them still reigns today. We decided to pay homage to 90s dancehall, with some of the hitmakers of the time. Not to mention for the first time in America The Emperor Shabba Ranks and Don DaDa Super Cat will be sharing the same stage in the United States” says Steve ‘Jabba’ Beckford co-promoter of Best of the Best.
