12 Inches of Snow Review

by Ron Wynn

Canadian dancehall rapper Snow became a celebrity when his patois-laced single "Informer" soared to the top of the charts in 1993. The song shattered the myth that pop audiences wouldn't embrace any tune whose lyrics weren't in pristine English; when his video was released, it included a rolling translation at the bottom. Unfortunately, the rest of this album was mildly pleasant, instantly forgettable pop-reggae delivered in a manner that made Shabba Ranks sound like U-Roy.
