From People Funny Boy to Fight To The Finish, Lee ?Scratch? Perry?s productions and collaborations are uncountable. Considered as a living legend in regards to Reggae music, the one we call ?The Mighty Upsetter? has not only created, with People Funny Boy, the first reggae song of all times, but has also given birth to some fundamental concepts of modern music such as Dub, Rap or Remix. In the early 1970s, Perry formed a studio, The Black Ark, to experiment in the dub style and produce tracks from notable musicians like Bob Marley & the Wailers and The Clash, the legendary British punk group who were perhaps the earliest white artists to combing rock'n'roll with reggae rhythms. In 1998, he collaborated with the Beastie Boys on the track "Dr. Lee, PHD" for the Hello Nasty album. In 2003, Perry won a Grammy for Best Reggae Album with the album Jamaican ET.
