Rich Ah Getting Richer

I’ve always liked this 1991 Rebel MC song, from when rave went ragga or ragga went rave and it’s very much hot weather music. Over some breakbeats and synth string stabs Rebel MC gives us the drop on the ever widening gulf between different economic groupings- true in ’91, even moreso now. Bright Young Thing of the 1920s Stephen Tennant looks on disdainfully.
