Biography

King Shango, King David, The Fireman and The Prophet.

A wise man once said that a prophet is not without honour save in his own country and so it has been with Capleton. While the veteran DJ’s words and works long ago earned him the title of “The Prophet”, the respect and honor that should rightfully be his have been a long time coming. “Anytime you try to uplift righteousness and upliftment of the people them, then you ah go get a fight”, says the hottest entertainer in the worldwide reggae fraternity. “Bob Marley come do it and them fight him. And when Bob Marley dead, that’s when they start to endorse him. I already aware of this, I am not unaware. So I know the more them fight I is the more I get stronger” In the fast-moving world of dancehall reggae, fame and success are hard to obtain and easy to lose. Fans can be fickle, and trends change in the blink of an eye, leaving most entertainers with painfully short career spans. Only a rare few can remain relevant from year to year, holding their audience’s attention and leaving them crying for more. His lyrics are deep, precise, and thoughtful. His stage shows are nothing less than dynamic, explosive performances. But his remarkable staying power and longevity may be Capleton’s greatest gift.

Born Clifton George Bailey III on April 13, 1967, in the rural parish of St. Mary, Capleton earned his future stage name from friends who were so impressed with his sharp reasoning skills that they named him after the most famous lawyer in town.

    @armagideon ???? I think you meant 'accept'. Glad to hear that you feel so strongly about 'not giving a fuck' - good luck with that one ;)

    @ wingsoftoast I listen to both Capleton and Buju and Skrewdriver. I'm an atheist Jew and I don't give a fuck about your cultural morality. We live in society we live and you can't except that musicians don't represent its ideology in their lyrics. Listen to music if you like it and if you don't make better music with your lyrics.

    I listen toCapleton and Buju too (Til Shiloh onwards anyway, though I like his take on Ring the Alarm) , but I don't think it's as simple as 'can't dance to politics' - gay men have been beaten to death in Jamaica in the name of supposed 'religious morality' . I wonder how many people would use the same argument to justify listening to Skrewdriver or neo-fascist folk music? The old testament morality in integral to the music - even if he's toasting over old dancehall / rocksteady riddims - you can't ignore it.
