Gappy Ranks And His Cookies

Cookies is a high grade package of modern reggae mastery.

Sampler

Leading reggae and dancehall artist Gappy Ranks from the UK loves his cookies. But these cookies aren't for eating. During his last tour through California, USA, Gappy Ranks was introduced to the "girl scout cookies" cannabis strain, and his musical inspiration has never been the same.

Gappy Ranks - CookiesThe 'Cookies' EP, available on iTunes on February 24th, features six herbally inspired tracks released on Gappy Ranks' Hot Coffee Music label, delivering five previously unreleased bangers from a variety of leading international producers.

Several tunes thematically revolve around California. West Coast carries a pounding one drop bass line and is sure to be the anthem this summer from San Diego to Bellingham or any other West Coast you might be on. In Wundah's mid-tempo dancehall tune Dah Herb Deh Gappy declares his internationality by telling us that "I'm a Amsterdam, I'm a Californian, I'm a ganjaman" and has already been an instant hit in Northern California.

Another Cali tribute is I Wanna Get High, where Gappy displays his versatility in lyrical gymnastics over a new age riddim from Special Delivery.

In Peace by Xillent G again shows the diversity in Gappy's delivery and message and tells of the social and medical benefits of the herb, and calls out to the world leaders for legalization.

In the bouncy Throw Mi Corn riddim remake Maddest Ting from Mustang/Hot Coffee Music, Gappy asks "Which herbalist have the maddest ting a road?", while he in the fast paced, in your face thumper, packed full of bass and laced with distortion rock guitar Herbs proclaims "I'm an herbalist for life!"

Any way you break it up Cookies is a high grade package of modern reggae mastery, and Gappy Ranks continues to satisfy the demand for quality music all over the globe.
