Capleton's a dancehall heavyweight with a career that stretches to the late '80s. His earliest work followed the bawdy template of the "slack" style, highlighted by the popular single "Bumbo Red," which controversially surveys sodomy and bestiality. During the mid-'90s, he converted to Rastafarianism and scored a deal with Def Jam, veering toward an R&B-infused reggae sound and collaborating with Lil Jon and Method Man. By the millennium, he'd fully embraced Rasta philosophy and a roots-driven, conscious-heavy approach. His latest, I-Ternal Fire, slows down the pace and indulges more of a soul flavor, though it still burns with his fiery spirit. With Munga, Romaine Virgo and Kulcha Knox.—Chris Parker
