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. He 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.
