King Yellowman

So the "Can't Frighten" mix sapped my bandwidth for the entire month in about 6 hours thanks to The Fader readers. Not to fear though I have another account that has some albums for your listening pleasure.

I actually uploaded this Yellowman collection a while back, but lagged on posting it. I should really be writing a letter of apology to Greensleeves for basically freeing up their whole "Most Wanted" series over the last month.

Where should I start with Yellowman? Well for the uninitiated my dude here is an albino Jamaican that ruled dancehall for nearly a decade. His output of almost 5 albums per year in the 80's also cemented his legacy as one of the most prolific deejays to ever come from the island. This collection is pretty wicked and I'd pick it up for "Wreck A Pum Pum" alone. As with the other "Most Wanted" releases lots of disco/12 inch mixes and all that.

Rest In Peace Fat Head a.k.a The Wickedest Sidekick Ever
