Cuts like True Born African and Ghetto Youth have a fresh feel to them as U Roy lays it down in his inevitable wild stylee! U Roy aka Ewart Beckford toasting career started in the early 1960’s where he had DJ stints with some impressive sound systems like Dickie Wongs Sound System, Sir Coxone Dodds Sound System where he worked along side DJ legend King S aka The Ugly One before moving onto King Tubbys Hometown Hi Fi System. True Born African once again sees U Roy deliver a striking DJ album with Mad Professors production and guidance. More from U Roy. I Am The Originator.
