Rankin Toyan Ghetto Man Skank
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Roots
Produced in 1983 by Jah Thomas for his Midnight Rock label, Ghetto Man Skank presents deejay Rankin Toyan at his prime. Chatting on classic Roots Radics rhythms, Toyan was blessing the dancehall regularly alongside Yellowman, Fathead, Louie Lepkie, and Johnny Ringo. Toyan's liquid patois on "Gwan Go Dance" and "Nice It Up" exudes the good vibes of a true rub-a-dub session. His toasting is so effortless that you get the impression that he could literally deejay for hours. Two duets with Jah Thomas, including "Two Bad DJs" on the old-school Entertainment riddim, round out this masterful set.
