Tapper Zukie – MPLA, Virgin’s Frontline 1978

” Since music is the school of love
I King Tapper Zukie rock the musical atmosphere

I no wan’ no war; I run to keep I life, yah !
That don’t mean I’m a simpleton, yaah !
I man jus’ umble !

This music make you walk and this music make you talk
And this music make you say it’s a sound a boss !

I man red; and if you not red you ah go dead;
And if you not dead, you ah go dread…”

‘Tapper Zukie’

This is maybe Tappa’s best LP, when it came out, we went
totally nuts. I remember Tapper playing at Paradiso Amsterdam,
they tore down the place, we had a great night.
