    not exactly....Dekker was certainly Jamaican, and sang of the hardships of living in the shanty towns etc, but was not necessarily a "Rastaman". Dekker is credited for the first hit record mention the Rastafarian concept of those religious sect followers being the lost Children of Israel, but I don't know that he was a strict practicing member. Isrealites is considered a song referencing the downtrodden poor of Jamaica in general, but is not necessarily a Rasta anthem. Dekker, who'd achieved considerable success in Babylon certainly didn't adhere to the dress code, or the muslim like provisions against shaving one's beard.
