RIP. Apart from his own history as an artist, Ujama was a legendary label.

Performer Prince Jazzbo Dies in Jamaica at 62
KINGSTON, Jamaica September 13, 2013 (AP)
By DAVID McFADDEN Associated Press

Prince Jazzbo, a rap reggae performer and producer whose career spanned 40 years, has died in his native Jamaica. He was 62.

Jazzbo died at his St. Catherine parish home after a fight with lung cancer, his daughter Princess Omega Carter said Thursday.

He started his career in the early 1970s at Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One, the island's first black-owned music studio that launched the careers of many reggae legends, including Bob Marley.

Born Linval Carter, Jazzbo was a relatively early performer of dancehall toasting, a vibrant form of rhythmic chanting over a sound system track that directly inspired hip-hop. His best known tunes included "Croaking Lizard," ''Penny Reel" and "Crab Walking."

In the 1970s, he had a spirited lyrical battle with fellow reggae rapper I-Roy. The two men feuded on several studio tracks, but were friends away from the microphone.

Jazzbo's performing career largely faded after the 1970s. But he helped build a record label called Ujama and eventually ran it himself, going on to produce hundreds of tunes.

Close friend Julie "Zimma" White said Jazzbo was a "very prideful man and a man of honor." He raised money for Christmas events for children in his community of Spanish Town, a crime-troubled city in southern Jamaica.

"Jazzbo always said a good friend is better than pocket change and that is how he lived," White said. "Jazzbo will be missed by many. I know I will never forget him."

He was recording music at his home studio until the end, his daughter said. A digital track called "Tribulation Riddim," set to be released Saturday, was intended to help him raise money to pay for his medical care.

Jazzbo is survived by three daughters, two sons, 10 grandchildren and his longtime companion, Natalie Wellington. Funeral arrangements were pending.

HI.. I Just came across this. an i seen a few things i would like to address..
this is .....rocksteadygrl aka zimma dlyte .
i started the go fund me page after getting a call from jazzbo... i couldnt take the knowing my friend was going thru that ... an in need... so i started the gofundme acct to help him and make sure he had what he needed.. an it was really beautiful to see people from all over the world make a difference in his life.. cause trust me thats what everyone did... the money went to the fund.. then sent to Sue his long time girl friend and who was taking care of Jazzbo in his final days. I put the fund me acct up on the 18th of AUG. an he passed away early evening on Sept 11th..
While i had the fund me acct up..I was offered a tune of jazzbo's from Tony dubshot ... this tune will be released tomorrow.. it will be mixed on a few different riddims.
Our goal with the proceeds at the moment........are basic.. I want Jazzbo to have the best service we can provide. I want to make sure all of his children are there... Can you imagine your parent passing away and not being able to afford to attend service.. wow......most are there in Ja.. but Prince icomstan aka young Jazzbo is in Sweden going to school.
as for who is posting on his facebook page.. Its his long time girl friend.. Natalie Wellington .. aka Sue.
hope this helps clear things up.. and thank you to everyone for their support.. xxxxxxxxxxxx rsg
