Whether you lived in Kingston or rural America, Sean Paul’s Dutty Rock was one of the biggest albums of 2003, moving hips both on the dancefloor and over the radio. “Get Busy” and “Baby Boy” both topped the pop charts at the time, while “Like Glue” remains a block party staple. Now, after a year that has seen him collaborate with the Rico Love/Stargate/Shellback team of producers, which has brought Euro house to the top of the charts as well as pop-punk rockers Simple Plan, the dancehall don comes to Webster Hall to help celebrate host and Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee’s birthday. Just don’t be surprised if he shows up sporting a mohawk in place of his trademark braids. With DJ Spynfo, DJ Naim, Sean Sharpe, and D.LO.
