Bounty Killer - Path To Greatness Reggae Sumfest 2010

This year’s Reggae Sumfest paid tribute to Bounty Killer his contribution to Jamaican Contemporary Music and his influence on other artists in the industry. It wasn’t as over the top as Beenie Man's crowing last year. Frankly at times one had to wonder if as much planning and attention went into this year piece. Compared to the big ass girls on bikes and Lady Saw putting on what looked like a preteen girl meets Bedazzler meets Burger King crown on Beenie Man's head. This video reminded patrons that they are different artists with different styles, tastes, points of view and it did a really good job of painting Bounty in a better light. Regardless of your allegiance if any, there is no denying the impact that Killer made over the years on the landscape of Jamaican and in places International music, slang and mannerisms. Although it is all about Bounty, Nitty Kutchie is boss in this.
