"King Yellowman"


I was just talking to my peoples {ShyeerAllah}, and I told him 'Yellowman", is coming to town........He tried to crack jokes on "Yellowman", and said "He didn't know too much about him"....................For the record, "Yellowman' is no joke........After Bob Marley died "Yellowman" hit the scene, and became Jamaica's biggest artist 82-85..........He was born as a albino, and concidered a outcast.........But that didn't prevent him from displaying his natural talent {mic wrecking}..............Sunsplash wouldn't have been Sunsplash, without "Yellowman"........"Sting" wouldn't be "Sting", without "Yellowman"...........And their is no way dancehall would be what it is today without "King Yelloman'................Check his album with "Fathead", it is a essential example of mic control, breath control, and crowd control.........Also "Yellowman" has been sampled by countless Hip Hop producers..."Dr.Dre" sampled him on "Nobody Move"....Nice and Smooth on "Zunga Zeng", I will just stop there................Respect....

Have you seen him lately, he had mouth cancer or something leaving his face horribly deformed really sad, but he still does shows, the dude is a champion for real.

A true pioneer, that was faced with monumental obstacles.........Even after having half of his throat removed, he still slays most cats........Boyyaaaaaakaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
