Massive Dread in Trench town
Massive Dread smokes the chalice in Trench town with Bobby and reggae legend Earl “Chinna” Smith and others. Massive Dread was a singer, a community leader and a true soldier who was very respected in Trench town. In January 1995 his voice was tragically silenced for good when gunman shot him 9 times as he stood in his doorway. He was a huge figure in the community and his funeral a big event that was attended by hundreds of people from the area. Massive was the one who was helping me work on a book about Trench town. I had already taken many photos for the project when it had to be put on hold, over a few years time three people helping me had been shot and killed and one left Jamaica for a safer environment.
