Are you a fan of reggae? Have you heard of Yellowman? If you are a true raggae fan than you better have.
JC Perez brought up Yellowman’s name in a conversation we were having about life in the real Caribbean, away from all the resorts and tourist hot spots. I started digging into yellowman a bit and listening to a few of his laid back Jamaican tracks.
I found out that Yellowman’s scope of influence was a lot larger than I thought and it made me feel like a rookie because I hadn’t heard of him before my conversation with Perez. I’ll quit babbling and let you read a little history about Yellowman as you listen to his Zungguzungguguzungguzeng.
