Album Notes
International Reggae Artist, Rankin' Scroo was born and raised in Jamaica. Music has always been the focus of his life. From his earliest days singing in church to his teenage years as a "DJ-Toaster" (reggae rapper), he achieved recognition throughout Jamaica as a talented musician.

New York City became Rankin's first home abroad where he performed with numerous sound systems and live bands. His vitality and intensity of expression carried his artistry from the Atlantic to the Pacific, pioneering reggae music in the Hawaiian Islands where he formed "Crucial Youth Productions", his recording studio and band.

In Hawaii, Rankin met Ginger and the two began to write and perform together. Their unique blend of musical backgrounds and vocals created the highly acclaimed reggae duo, "Rankin' Scroo & Ginger", and pioneered the sound now recognized worldwide as Jawaiian music.

For the past fifteen years, their releases and live performances have astounded crowds worldwide, from Jamaica to Europe and all over North America. As Joe Aytch of Jah Works says, "Scroo always has a surprise or two up his sleeve, brings the best musicians available, and puts on the best show of any of the local or regional bands around."

Rankin' Scroo and Ginger have won numerous awards and honors for their works and are highly regarded as veteran performers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their songs enjoy regular rotation in Jamaica and Hawaii to this day.

Rankin' settled in the Bay Area and brought Crucial Youth with him. He is a highly sought after musical composer whose creative arrangements have enhanced the words and melodies of many major label artists such as Black Uhuru, Foundation Frankie Paul, 2-Crucial, Money-B and Com-Pleks.

Rankin's musical versatility has given birth to reggae rhythms and vocal styles that transcend this musical category. Urban Reggae is the genesis of Rankin's diverse musical influences. This cutting edge style masterfully blends Reggae Dancehall, Hip-Hop, and R&B in to a sound that has mass crossover appeal. Godfada is Rankin's latest release. This album serves not only as an introduction to Urban Reggae but also to Rankin' Scroo as a solo artist.

Godfada features tracks like "Girl Talk" the single for the album, which is sure to penetrate the charts, rising up from the streets. "Ridin West" and "Wyleside" appeal to the well established Hip-Hop/R&B and Hip-Hop/Dancehall markets respectively. Songs like "California Gangsta" and "Lyrical Tongue" ensure Rankin's core Dancehall audience will view this album as an instant hit. On the soulful "Pride", Rankin delivers the knowledge and spiritually uplifting message that has made him a household name in the Reggae community. From the first note to the last echo, this album flows lyrically and musically through a tapestry of musical styles that makes Godfada a must-hear, must-have CD for all music lovers

Rankin is currently collaborating with nationally charting Reggae-pop artist, David Martin. The two have teamed up on "Chillin'", a bumping lover's rock track from David's album, "King David's Throne", now getting plenty airplay across the country (even managed to snag a couple clear channel radio stations!) Rankin will be appearing with David, along with Chilean dub sensation, Red-I, and the slammin' "Full Tilt Boogie Band" in and around the Bay Area and across the USA. A music video for "Chillin'" will be filmed this spring!

Rankin has also appeared in several movies such as:
"Gangster's Paradise/Is it Worth it?"- starring Ras Kidus, Beenie Man and Ninja Man"
Straight Out" - starring Darryl Heate
"Halloween House Party" - starring Joe Torre
