It's pretty amazing how well Yellowman has weathered the years. His first hits came in the early '80s, and you can count on one hand the number of reggae artists who were superstars that long ago and who continue to maintain that status. Throw in Yellowman's triumphant struggle over a disfiguring cancer (not to mention the albino coloring that made him a social outcast until he became a reggae hero), and you've got a genuinely inspiring story.

For better or for worse, he also epitomized dancehall's penchant for "slack" lyrics — that is, casual violence, sexism, homophobia, and general rudeness.
