Dancehall and hip hop superstar Sean Paul is a New York favorite. After releasing a string of hits in his native Jamaica, he broke onto the U.S. scene with 1999’s “Here Comes the Boom,” which was featured on the soundtrack to the motion picture Belly, and “Hot Gal Today,” which broke the Top Ten on Billboard’s rap charts.

The Mighty Sparrow (a.k.a. Dr. Slinger Francisco) is affectionately known as the Calypso King of the World. He possesses the unique ability not only to put into words and tempo the exploits of society, but to crown it all with showmanship and appeal.
