No Vacancy Riddim

General’s Ranking: starstarstarstar

The original tune on this riddim was Jumping Master recorded by Mikey Dread alongside the Roots Radics band. Jumping Master inspired the 1981 hit No Vacancy by Sugar Minott. Another classic tune on the riddim is Michigan & Smiley’s Afrikan Must Be Free which comes from their essential LP Step By Step . Twenty years after the original release, Sugar Minott lit up the 2001 relick with No Vacancy, Part 2.
