Through adversity and triumph, Yellowman (born Winston Foster on January 15, 1956) still remains one of most pivotal music figures out of Jamaica today. He was able overcome Jamaica’s negative social stigma on albinism and embrace his uniqueness (hence his moniker Yellowman). He grew up in a Catholic orphanage known for its musical alumni called Alpha Boys School in Kingston, where he mastered his craft. The inimitable dancehall deejay rose to prominence in the 1980s during a time when roots reggae was flourishing with megastars like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff. In 1981, Yellowman signed to Columbia Records and made history as the first dancehall artist to ink a deal with a major U.S. label. During this newfound success, he faced the hardship of battling cancer and had to undergo an invasive jaw surgery to remove the malignant tumor. His bouts with the disease pushed him into more thoughtful, socially conscious territory in the ’90s. However, his initial “slack” style of more sexually provocative lyrics and cheeky rhymes still remains the most influential and paved the way for countless dancehall toasters to follow. He is also embraced by the hip hop community in the States. Yellowman has collaborated with Run DMC and his iconic 1983 hit “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng” has been sampled by rap heavyweights like KRS-One, Notorious B.I.G., 2pac, Dead Prez and Black Star (Mos Def and Talib Kweli).
