Despite the fact that there were many collaborations with male vocalists (singers, rappers) for different projects, TRICKY took only a few of them on tour. Not a surprise, since most important songs are sung by female singers and only two rappers did more than two songs on one album with TRICKY. One of them was

from one the famous english rapgroup London Posse. He was featured on three original tracks on „Juxtapose“: „Bom Bom Diggy“, „I Like The Girls“ and „Hot Like A Sauna“ (two versions).
