Reportedly a serious gangster wanted on both sides of the atlantic, nicknamed 'Boyak' after the sound a machine gun makes, which he is rumoured to have used.
Eventually Tappa Zukie "discovered" him and helped produce and promote him. There are conflicting reports as to what happened to him.
Second among toasters only to Tappa Zukie himself, his depth of voice makes any tune sound the heaviest. Shut Me Mouth is the track to play to people who are into like electronic music but that don't fancy reggae - the most industrial new wave and punk reggae track ever.
