General B ft. Ghost - Mr. Boasy & Friend on #Jamaica #Dancehall #13thStreetPromotions

OLDIES SUNDAY: General B X Ghost – Mr. Boasy & Friend (1998)

Happy Sunday! Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is for those who like to show off, stunt, keep up appearances, and look down on people, but their priorities aren’t in order. The World is filled with them, but this man chose to call them out many years ago. His name is Dancehall Artist General B, and the track is called, “Mr. Boasy & Friend“.

Produced by Colin “Fatta” Walters on the “Top Shotta Riddim” and released through Colin Fat Records/VP Records in 1998, General B calls out those who always have the most money, have all the high end fashion, driving the latest vehicles, and who carry on like rich snobs. While some may say he is hating, the fact is those same people don’t have their priorities in order to the point where they don’t own anything outside of the fancy things, and one false move may find them homeless and flooded with bills causing embarrassment to themselves and their families. General B shares that he may not have the best of things at the time, but he is confident that at the end of the day, life is more in order than theirs. Fellow Dancehall Artist Ghost makes an appearance on the track by providing the chorus, and compliments General B’s deejaying well. “Mr. Boasy & Friend” was a hit for General B, and was one of many as he was a part of the legendary Monster Shack Crew with Ghost and Roundhead. The single was also featured on the group’s 1998 “Monster Party” album. General B is still active in the Dancehall circles, and has solidified himself as one of the contributors to some of the best years in Jamaican music.
