Hog Inna Minty...

No idea what Hog Inna Minty means or is about but it doesn't really matter as it is just a great song, with an equally great title.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica Nitty Gritty (not his real name!!) formed The Soulites in the early 1970s and recorded his first solo single in the early 1980s for producer Sugar Minnott before moving onto King Jammy in the mid 80's where he recorded the wonderful Jamaican folk song Hog Inna Minty. After that he relocated  to London and then New York where he was sadly shot dead outside a record store in Brooklyn at the tender age of only 34.
