Vybz Kartel isn't as original as you thought, huh?
Nah, I'm just kidding. Some of my favorite "new age" dancehall tunes have used samples, riddims, and styles from the older generations. That alone shows you how foundation music and veteran artists impact modern day dancehall acts. They were the ones who paved the road for future success in the industry so it's always good to bless them up and show respect.
Another example of this is when producers started the riddim revival, I was hooked on the remake of the Boops Riddim! It's so nice they had to do it twice!
