Baligaga

Album: Knowle West Boy (2008)
  • Tricky explained on his record label's website that the reggae vocalist on this track is "my boy Rodigan from New York… one of the guys I hung out with in The Bronx. Seven years we've been friends, and he inspires me."
  • 'Baligaga' is a word that Tricky made up. It doesn't really mean anything.
