Linton Kwesi Johnson

I was listening to Dr. Dicks Dub Shack, when I heard Linton Kweski Johnson for the first time. Within days I bought a few albums, including Force of Victory also a 2 disc Island Records anthology.
Mr. Brown is a Jamaican born London based renaissance man, published poet, visiting professor at Middlesex University, community activist, accomplished musician and business man. His music explores the African Caribbean in Britain as well universal politics with great beats and instrument use, he is also one of three people ever to have their works published by Penguin Modern Classics while still living.
