"King" Yellowman as he is known, is one of the most popular reggae artists to have come from Jamaica. His early-'80s success brought the popularity of toasting - the reggae equivalent of rapping - to a whole new level, and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future. Yellowman was one of the most verbally nimble toasters of his time, with a loose, easy flow, a talent for improvisation, and a definite wit in his wordplay.
