Born on November 30, 1981 in the micro-ghetto community "Cassava Piece" within Kingston, Jamaica."If you think reggae died with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, think again. Jamaica's latest star, Mavado, combines hip-hop-influenced beats with ominous minor-key vocals about street life and salvation." (Rolling Stone)
