Throwback: Dread Flimstone & The Modern Tone Age Family-From The Ghetto

Rex Morgan is from Venice, California and he started in the music business playing piano for various reggae bands around Los Angeles in the ’80’s.┬áHe adopted the Dread Flimstone moniker and formed the Tone Age Family with Jah T and Papa Yaie. “From The Ghetto” originally appeared on the Acid Jazz: Collection 1 compilation. The full-length From The Ghetto album was released in ’92 and the single became popular in clubs because the sound was a house-reggae hybrid. “From The Ghetto” also made the Billboard and U.K. dance charts.
