Bounty Killer - Dancehall Artiste

Bounty Killer (born Rodney Basil Price June 12, 1972 in Kingston, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay, known for his hard work in combating poverty and helping new artists.

The last son in a family of nine, he grew up in the rough part of Kingston, Jamaica, in a ghetto named Trenchtown. His mother stayed at home while his father went out to earn a living.

He started performing under the name Bounty Hunter but one day, while walking in one of the rough neighbourhoods of Kingston, he was caught in crossfire and hit by a bullet. He spent several days in the hospital, and it was during this time that he decided to change his name to Bounty Killer.

During the early 1990s, Bounty Killer hung around the studio of producer King Jammy in Kingston – encouraged by the moderate success of fellow friend and deejay Boom Dandymite - and finally Bounty Killer got the chance to voice for King Jammy and one of the first tunes to come out from Bounty Killer was “Book, Book, Book”.

Since 1993 Bounty Killer became a household name in Jamaica – due to his well received performance at the annual hardcore festival Sting held in the days after Christmas. His rough lyrics and unique flow. Bounty Killer has tried to protect his individuality and this has caused many problems both on and off stage with various singers.

During the 1990s Bounty Killer has voiced for producers and labels in Jamaica – and has put out songs of redemption like: “Defend the Poor,” “Mama,” “Book, Book, Book,” “Babylon System” and “Down in the Ghetto.” In 1996 the Jamaican government banned his hit song ”Fed Up.” The 90s was also the decade in which Bounty Killer became known in USA and in Europe and ended up with several combinations with big artists like The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Mobb Deep, Capone-N-Noreaga as well as No Doubt and AZ in 2005.

While the 1990’s was a decade of many albums released, the new millennium seems to be the decade of many singles released. Still working with top producers in Jamaica and abroad, Bounty Killer insists on releasing singles almost on a daily basis. He is without any doubt one of the most productive artists to come out of Jamaica, and he recently put out a best of album and is planning a brand new studio album as of December 2006.

See you in Jamaica.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd
post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will
be a lot more useful than ever before.

Hi, Neat post. Therе's a problem with your website in internet explorer, might check this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a good section of people will leave out your wonderful writing because of this problem.
