Linton Kwesi Johnson

Profile:
Linton Kwesi Johnson (aka LKJ) (born 24 August 1952, Chapelton, Jamaica) is a British-based author and dub poet. Johnson's poetry makes clever use of the unstandardised transcription of Jamaican Patois and, allied to the Jamaican "toasting" tradition, is regarded as a precursor of rap. He became the second living poet, and the only black poet, to be published in the Penguin Classics series.
