YES my people! Daddy Tip here – it’s been awhile, so I wanted to say ‘Hello Darling’ and share what’s been goin on!
First of all – I wrote a book! It’s the “uncensored” story of my life and career and is called “Stick To My Roots.” I’ve been through a lot in my life – most people have no clue what I’ve been through, but you’re about to find out! All of the challenges have made me who I am today, for better or for worse. Lots of my friends contributed stories to this book, including Maxi Priest, Peter Huningale, and Ali Campbell of UB40 just to name a few. And the cover art is from a painting done by my bredren Chali 2na – it’s BAAAAD! The book is available today for presale – and will drop this summer – August 24th! Check it out below…
Second, my calendar is filling up and I will be performing ALL OVA this year! From the UK, to JA, to Serbia, to the USA! On April 1st, I will be passing through the Dub Meeting in Los Angeles – link up with my friends from O.B.F and Iration Steppas, courtesy of Dubsiren. Come on through if you in Cali! And don’t miss me with full band (The Upper Cut Band) at Reggaeland in the UK this August – that one is gonna be HOT LIKE FYAH!!
Speaking of Hot Like Fyah – have you seen my latest video for my track “HOT LIKE FIRE” on my latest album? I filmed it in Jamaica earlier this year, just after performing at Dancehall Thursdays in Kingston with Peter Metro. Scroll down and have a look!
BIG UP all of my fans…and the DJs…and the Promotors…and all the people who have supported my work for the past 40+ years. FORTY YEARS! I’m grateful every day of my life for each and every one of you. I hope to see you at one of my shows this year. Please come find me and say… Hello Darling! BLESS UP!

2021 has been a big year of new projects for me as well! Get ready for a brand new full length album from Yours Truly to be released before the end of 2021. It’s called “I’m An African” and features collabos from several amazing artists. It will be one for the record books. And in 2022, my official autobiography will be released through Jacaranda. Cyaan stop Jah works!
An album of reggae collaborations with artists spanning four continents and seven decades of recording experience, featuring House of Shem, Tippa Irie, BLVK H3RO, Inner Circle, Pablo Rider, KIOKO, Gilly G, Slinger, Winston Francis, Leno Banton and General Zooz (Reggae Rajahs)
Following 2019’s critically acclaimed original album ‘For The Many’, on 25th JuneUB40 release Bigga Baggariddim, an incredible celebration of the genre they love and a seminal reggae collaborations album.
Over 35 years after the original Baggariddim album, UB40 have reunited with artists who appeared on the 1985 album and collaborated with new, diverse reggae talent from around the world, who sing and deejay over cuts of the same rhythms. It was in cities like UB40’s hometown of Birmingham where people from different ethnic backgrounds first learnt to live with one another, giving rise to multi-cultural Britain. It’s therefore natural for UB40 to collaborate with artists of differing nationalities, ages and cultural backgrounds, as well as those sharing the same roots as themselves.
“We really enjoy collaborations and this is a natural progression from the original Baggariddim, only more international, and a perfect companion to our last album For The Many because it uses the same rhythms/backing tracks, but features some of the reggae friends we’ve met and worked with around the world.” – Robin Campbell, UB40
