Biography

Born in 1944 or 1945 in Spanish Town, Jamaica as Michael James Williams. He became well known under his stage names “King Cry Cry” and “Prince Far I”. Prince Far I started his career in the early 70’s with a tune for Bunny Lee called “The Great Booga Wooga” . Later on he recorded songs for Joe Gibbs and eventually started his own label called “Cry Tuff”. Prince Far I is sadly no longer with us, he was murdered the 15th of September 1983. It’s like Prince Far I sang in the song called “Heavy Manners” from the album “Under Heavy Manners”:

“… discipline is what the world needs today and etiquette, you know. For one of the noblest things a man can do is to do the best he can, yeah …”

These words are still actual today, because murdering people sure isn’t the best thing you can do and with some discipline and etiquette the world could do a lot better, Prince Far I may even have lived untill this day!
