Among other recognitions, his song "Youths Dem Cold" was number 29 on Vibe Magazine's "44 Best Songs of 2007."
Richie Spice will be joined by Dezarie, one of reggae's greatest female artists. Her "Eaze the Pain" album was released in April.

He since has begun performing and recording as a solo artist.
