Rankin’ Scroo is an International Reggae Artist whose riddim stylings started cutting across boundaries in his native Jamaica as a Dancehall Toaster while yet a youth. His musical inclinations began as a very young child singing in church.
His explorative nature has led him on an odyssey across the oceans, making his mark with significant Sound System stops in New York and Hawaii. It was in Hawaii that he met his partner Ginger. As they wrote and performed together, they became instrumental in the creation of the Jawaiian genre of music; a melding of Reggae and Hawaiian styles.
Their music continually finds airplay on radio stations all over the world.
Their collaborations have established a global fan base with strongholds in Jamaica, America, Europe, Japan and the Latin Reggaeton nations. After forming his Crucial Youth Productions Company, the pair moved to the S.F. Bay Area where their influence has helped shape the careers of many dominant artists locally and globally.
Scroo’s production and compositional techniques have helped the careers of an amazing A-list of artists and performers including Black Uhuru, Mikey Dread, Frankie Paul, Sister Carol, Foundation, Lutan Fyah, Too Short, Keak da Sneak, Rappin 4Tay, Yukmouth, Messy Marv, Tyquan and E-40.
Now known as the Godfather of Urban Reggae, Rankin Scroo continues his trend setting agenda. He has branched into the film industry having written and performed both as an actor and musician. He has composed Soundtracks for several films including Cop and a Badman, Men At Work (starring Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen)and Be Cool (starring John Travolta).
His latest releases feature former Commodores lead singer, Skyler Jett, (a Grammy recognized artist for his vocals with Celine Dion on the Titanic soundtrack). The track Love Zone continues to receive worldwide airplay, two years after its initial release. The film documentary Mothers With Murder has a theme song, Education, which is also a Rankin’ Scroo/Skyler Jett collaboration.
