Esta canción de 93 pegó fortisimo, no sé si la recordareís :)

Snow (nombre real Darrin O'Brien nacido el 30 de octubre de 1968 en North York, Ontario) es un músico de reggae canadiense. Debutó en 1992 con el álbum 12 Inches of Snow. El álbum fue producido enteramente por MC Shan, excepto una canción de la que se encargó John Ficarrotta. El álbum fue producido poco antes de que Snow fuese encarcelado. Una vez en libertad, su primer single "Informer", en el que colaboraba MC Shan, llegó a lo más alto en las listas de éxitos. Más tarde se convertiría en uno de los temas de reggae más vendidos de todos los tiempos, siendo número 1 en USA y uno de los 10 primeros en el Reino Unido.
Ficarrotta y Shan también trabajaron en el segundo disco de Snow, Muerder Love, en el que también cooperaron Junior Reid, Hurby "LuvBug" Azor, entre otros.
Aunque sus siguientes álbums no fueron gran cosa, volvió a entrar en los tops de las listas canadienses en el año 2000 con "Everybody Wants to Be Like You", perteneciente al disco Mind on the Moon y se espera que saque un nuevo disco en 2006.
Snow es pariente de Steven Page, miembro de Barenaked Ladies.

Snow Informer

What's up man hey yo what's up
Yeah what's goin' on here
Sick an' tired of five-oh runnin' up on the block here
You know what I'm sayin'
Yo Snow they came around here lookin' for you the other day
Word word bust it
Informer you no say daddy me Snow me I'll go blame
A licky boom boom down
Detective mon said daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky Boom Boom Down.
Police them come an' now they blow down me door
One him come crawl through through my window
So then they put me in the back the car at the station
From that point on me reach my destination
When the destination reached it was the east detention
Where them whipped down me pants looked up me bottom so
Bigger they are they think they have more power
They're on the phone me say that on (every) hour
Me for want to use it once an' now me call me lover
Lover who I'll be callin is the one Tammy
An' me love her in me heart down to my belly
Yes me daddy me Snow me I feel cool an' deadly
As the one MC Shan an' the one daddy Snow
Together we-a love 'em as a Tor-Na-Do
Listen for me you better listen for me now (x2)
When me rockin' the microphone me rock it steady
Yes sir daddy me Snow me are the article don
But in the in an' the out of a dance them they say where you come from
People them say you come from Jamaica
But me born an' raised in the ghetto that's the one I want you to know
Pure black people mon that's all I mon know
Yeah me shoes are tear up an' me toes used to show
Where me born in on the one Toronto so
Come with a nice young lady.
Intelligent yes she's gentle an' irie
Everywhere me go me never left her at all
Yes its daddy Snow me are the roam dance mon
Roam between a dancin' in a in a nation-a
You never know say daddy me Snow me are the Boom Shakata
Me never lay-a down flat in that one cardboard box
Yes say me Daddy me Snow me I'll go reachin' at the top so
Why would he (x2)
Me sittin' 'round cool with my dibbie dibbie girl
Police knock my door lick up my pal
Rough me up an' I can't do a thing
Pick up my line when my telephone ring
Take me to the station black up my hands
Trail me down 'cuz I'm hangin' with the Snowman
What I'm gonna do I'm backed an' I'm trapped
Slap me in the face an' took all o' my gap
They have no clues an' they wanna get warmer
But Shan won't turn informer
