The Invincible Beany Man ‎– The 10 Year Old D.J. Wonder

Only 1 left in stock


Radiation Roots present a reissue of Beany Man‘s The Invincible Beany Man (The 10 Year Old D.J. Wonder), originally released in 1987. Dancehall superstar Beenie Man has enjoyed a career unmatched for its length and diversity. Born Moses Davis in 1973, he claims to have started toasting on his uncle’s sound system, Master Blaster, at five years old; during his harsh youth, he became a semi-wild creature of the streets and lived as a near homeless person, suffering from malnourishment, before music became his ultimate salvation. His debut recording, “Too Fancy,” was produced by political “enforcer”-turned-producer, Henry “Junjo” Lawes, after he won a popular talent contest where the price was a recording contract, though nothing much happened with that particular release. Beenie Man recorded his debut album for hit-making producer Bunny Lee, released as The Invincible Beany Man (The 10 Year Old D.J. Wonder), while he was already a steady fixture on Lee’s Unlimited, a vintage sound system established in 1968 in Springfield, a small town in the eastern parish of Saint Thomas, and then one of Jamaica’s most prominent sets. On the album, his flow is well-honed, his chatter sounding entirely skillful and confident, the rhymes flowing from his mouth with ease and fervor. On one track, he even dares to compare himself to Bob Marley
