Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Chukki Starr is widely regarded as the best the UK reggae scene has to offer these days. This militant singjay his delivered some fine own productions as well as solid to excellent material for various producers in the UK and also Jamaica. "Down In The Ghetto" is produced by London based artist/producer Danny Ray. Chukki Starr fully showcases his skills and talent in this awesome conscious effort. The youth delivers his hard hitting reality lyrics over an infectious, R&B oriented riddim. Fine female harmony vocals are added to the chorus and at the end of the tune, when they round off with a part of Elvis Presley's "In The Ghetto". Part 2 on the flipside has a different, much heavier mix.
