Toyan - Features in Beth Lesser's Book - The Rise Of Jamaican Dancehall Culture

I found this Dancehall.Mobi foundation dancehall picture feature, brought to you in association with author / photographer - Beth Lesser. The undated photo below of deejay Ranking (Papa) Toyan was taken at Junjo Lawe’s Volcano HQ near Spanish Town Road, where the whole Volcano crew would hang out on a daily basis in the early to mid 1980s. Unfortunately, Toyan was shot and killed in New York, USA circa 1991.
