The Heptones’ “Heptones Gonna Fight” Featured In New @SnowFallFX Episode


Are you a fan of TV shows? What do you get into? For some, the FX series “Snowfall” is a must-see TV show. With a story set around the beginning of the “Crack Epidemic” in 1980s LA, it has been hailed as one of the best crime dramas out. On episode 6 in season 4 of the series, a familiar Jamaican hit can heard, and it comes from the iconic, The Heptones!

During a scene featuring “Snowfall” character Khadijah, The Heptones’ 1968 release “Heptones Gonna Fight” can be heard throughout. Produced by “Sir CoxsoneDodd for Studio One, the track was featured on the group’s “On Top” album. It has been sampled by Garnett Silk, Shy FX, and former member Leroy Sibbles. It would seem like an injustice if you have a Film or TV Show and not have some Jamaican music as the soundtrack. “Snowfall” can be seen weekly on FX on Cable, or on Hulu.
