Died: Sep 15, 1983
Michael James Williams, better known
as the deejay Prince Far I, started his recording career in the late sixties,
when he cut ‘The Great Wooga Booga’ for Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. However, his
first hits came when he teamed up with producer Joe Gibbs. This success enabled him to finance the setting-up of his own ‘Cry Tuff’ label. Gruff chants delivered over tough riddims became Prince Far I’s trademark. The deejay’s life and career came to an end when
On September 15, 1983 Prince Far I was brutally killed during a robbery at his home in Jamaica.
