List of products by Artist: Daddy Freddy

Born 1965 in Kingston, Jamaica as Samuel Frederick Small, assumed his wife's Nicole Nelsons name with the marriage. 

In 1987 Daddy Freddy teamed up with Asher D and, together with producer Simon Harris, created a blueprint for the first successful amalgamation of dancehall reggae (ragga - see below) and hip hop. Their debut album "Ragamuffin Hip Hop" sold reasonably well in the UK on Music of Life, in the USA on Profile Records and throughout Europe on various labels. The new sound inspired a new interest in combining reggae with contemporary dancefloor styles and a sound that continues today was born. Freddy continued this frontier-busting style by making "Ragga House" with Simon Harris and again a new style was born, house music and ragga. This single narrowly missed the UK pop Top 40 charts.
