King Yellowman

The undisputed Dancehall King, the original slack deejay, Yellowman at his yard in Stoney Hill, Jamaica.

This image is from 1991 when I interviewed and photographed him at his home for my book Reggae Island. Since then I’ve photographed Yellowman many times over the years and anyone that knows him can tell you about his raunchy sense of humor, he’s a very funny guy. Despite his health problems I’m always amazed at the high energy of his live performances, giving 125% every time, it makes me tired just watching  him. Last year I was able to catch up with him in Amsterdam and he was still kicking it out, hit after hit… Nuff respect King !
