Tippa Irie – Grammy Nominated Recording Artist (Reggae, Hiphop, Dub)
Anthony Henry – a.k.a. Tippa Irie was born to Jamaican parents in South London. Tippa Irie gained experience as a hard-hitting dancehall toaster on his father’s Mobile Reggae Disco Sound system while still in high school. After graduating, he worked on Saxon International, Britain’s best sound system. After a series of 12-inch singles on the Greensleeves label, he released his first album, Is It Really Happening to Me? Thanks to the single, “Hello Darling,” the album launched his career. Mad Professor produced his next album, Rebel on the Roots Corner, for Ras Records. It took him almost four years to follow it up, but Mr. Versatile was highly regarded and kept himself visible in the reggae scene. Three years later, the critically-lauded I Miss appeared on Resin Music.
He has collaborated with Alexander O’Neal, Long Beach Dub All Stars, and Chali 2na and so many more. However, he enjoyed his biggest success so far in 2003, when he appeared on The Black Eyed Peas’ track, “Hey Mama”. He has also collaborated with the London based avant-dancehall outfit, The Bug, on the single “Angry” from the album, London Zoo. In 2010, he appeared on the BBC Television panel show, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, in the identity parade round. His latest release is “Stick To My Roots” (2010) done together with the Far East Band. He is also always hard at work at Lockdown Productions making irie music and does a weekly radio show every Tuesday between 3-6pm on Radio RJR 98.3FM.
