MUSIC VIDEO/SONG

"Informer" by Snow - 


"Informer" is a 1992 single by Canadian reggae musician Snow. It features and is produced by MC Shan, and is from Snow's debut album 12 Inches of Snow. The single was a chart topping hit, spending seven consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was his biggest hit in the United Kingdom, where it reached Number 2, behind two different number one singles. In 2007, the song was ranked No. 84 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.

In 1992, while on vacation in Queens, New York, Snow met MC Shan, and the pair produced a four-song demo.[3] MC Shan then introduced Snow to producer–managers Steve Salem and David Eng, who signed him to their Motor Jam Records company, and licensed the music to East West Records.[3] Shortly thereafter, Snow began serving an eight-month sentence in Toronto for assault.[3] "Informer" began getting radio and MuchMusic airplay while he was incarcerated.[3]

The song is based on a separate 1989 incident when Snow was charged with two counts of attempted murder.[3] At the time, he was detained for a year in Toronto before the charges were reduced to aggravated assault, and he was eventually acquitted and freed.[3]

In a 1999 interview, he referred to his criminal history as "a couple of bar fights.

This song is what truly taught me not to be an informer, because I didn't want to be licky boom boom downed. Thanks Snow and MC Shan, who didn't turn informer either.

My favorite part of the video is when Snow adjusts his glasses and tries to make it look tough, even that might be the least tough thing one can do.

White Canadian reggae rapper. I love everything about this song and am very glad it exists.

I didn't realize the his album was called "12 Inches of Snow". I wonder if the social conservatives got that and/or their response was back then.
