Wonder had been on the underground reggae circuit since the late 80s beginning with the late Jamaican legend King Tubby, also known as the creator of dub (a practice of re-recording a hit record while mixing in ad libs or tags).
Wonder created "Bashment Gal" and the title song for the rhythm "Joyride," which he was extremely pleased with because it gave the track "the identity it deserves." He also wrote the poetry for other artists, including Buju Banton’s "Deportees" and the club classic "Murderer" from the "’Til Shiloh" masterpiece.
