    i understand that reggae is mostly about political views and im not knocking that but aargh theres just something i dont like about it and its pissing me off trying to figure out why everytime i hear a reggae song i feel disgusted... maybe its because people around here bump it outta there rides way too much? maybe its cause my ex loved it? maybe its cause... i dunno but im gonna find out

    Beenie Man is actually considered "Dance Hall" rather than true reggae. And dance hall and 'rap' are pretty similar in styles.

    I agree with WW that most people's only experience in the genre of reggae music is Bob Marley & The Wailers. But those same people listen and know of only a small portion of Bob's music.
    Here's usually the only songs the 'average' perosn knows about Bob
    Jammin
    No Woman No Cry
    Could you be Loved
    Buffalo Soldier
    Basically what is on the Legend album

    But his musical archive is incredible. From some of the early stuff with the Wailers where it didn't sound like Reggae at all.

    Dancehall is kinda like combining Reggae beats spinning a little faster and rap music , singing in the same style a rapper would rap over a beat. Dancehall is usually played in clubs more so than the typically laid back grooves of reggae.
