Essential Records | Billy Boyo



There were lots of rumors about this kid: The false story was this: As one of the "child" deejay stars of Kingston, Boyo emerged on the scene as 13 year old.  He took jabs at some of the Kingston gangsters with his lyrics and ended up getting shot in the head and killed before he hit puberty. The Clash song "Wrong em Boyo" is supposedly about this incident.

The Real story is mostly the same as above except he was not murdered - he died of a brain tumor in Brooklyn.
