Sean Paul Celebrates His Career With 'Dutty Classics Collection,' A New Compilation Featuring 18 Tracks From The Grammy-Winning Jamaican Artist, Including The Smash Hits "Get Busy," "Gimme The Light," "Temperature," And "Baby Boy!"
Grammy-winning rapper Sean Paul selects some of his favorite tracks for a new compilation that highlights many of his biggest hits, including the #1 smashes "Get Busy," "Temperature" and "Baby Boy". 'Dutty Classics Collection' will be available from Rhino on CD.
The 18 tracks follow Paul's career with music from all six of his studio albums: Stage One (2000), Dutty Rock (2002), The Trinity (2005), Imperial Blaze (2009), Tomahawk Technique (2012) and Full Frequency (2014).
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Paul made his debut in 1998 with "Top Shotter" — his collaboration with DMX and Mr. Vegas. The song appeared on the soundtrack for the film Belly, in which Paul also made a brief cameo appearance. Naturally, the track is included on this new collection.
Two years after the film, Paul released his debut album Stage One. It introduced fans to his distinctive lyrical flow and irresistible dancehall rhythms on songs like "Deport Dem" and "Infiltrate." The album climbed to #2 on the Rap Charts, but it was his follow-up, Dutty Rock, that proved to be the artist's commercial breakthrough. A top 10 smash on U.S. album charts, it sold more than six million copies worldwide thanks to the success of the #1 hits "Get Busy" and "Baby Boy." In 2004, Paul was nominated for three Grammys: Best New Artist, Best Rap Solo Performance, and won for Best Reggae Album.
Paul released Trinity in 2005 and scored another #1 hit with "Temperature," a single that was certified double platinum. It's featured on this collection along with two other fan favorites from the album: "We Be Burnin'" and "Give It To Me."
Critical acclaim continued with Paul's next three releases — Imperial Blaze, Tomahawk Technique and Full Frequency — which were nominated for the Best Reggae Album Grammy in 2010, 2013 and 2015 respectively. Songs from those albums on DUTTY CLASSICS include "So Fine" and "She Doesn't Mind," as well as "Entertainment 2.0" which features guest artists Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, and 2 Chainz.
