Rebel with a cause, Jamaican deejay, the music of Josey Wales featured in an exclusive mix.
Josey Wales is one of my favorite original deejays. With a career starting in the late 1970s, Josey came to notoriety performing live on U-Roy‘s King Sturgav sound system. He recorded some of his biggest hits for producer Henry “Junjo” Lawe’s Volcano record label and was a dominant figure while touring with the Volcano sound system.
Josey Wales is an influential Jamaican dancehall deejay.
Wales is considered to be one of the best dancehall toasters of the 1980s dancehall era. A confident entertainer with a powerful presence on stage, Josey Wale’s voice was rough and gritty. His lyrics embodied the content of a street-side reporter, comedian, and motivational speaker.
Josey Wales was one of dancehall’s founding fathers
