Beenie Man is one of the most accomplished artist from Jamaica. Beenie Man was born as Anthony Moses Davis in the Waterhouse district of Kingston (Jamaica) on August 22, 1973. Around the age, when he should begin with grammar school, he had already decided to start a career as a D.J. He had his first achievement at the age of 8, when he won the first prize at the national Teeny Talent contest. This brought him together with producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes, who has recorded the young DJ’s first single (“Too Fancy”). Another famous producer, Bunny “Striker” Lee (from “Unlimited” sound system) took then over and started to work together with the young boy. In 1983, Beenie Man was already recording live with DJ heavyweights like Dillinger, Fathead and Ringo. Beside of Unlimited, he was also DJ-ing for Prince Jammy’s Volcano sound system and even had a debut album out (Beenie Man: The 10 year old DJ wonder). Beenie’s has also a brother (Little Kirk), who was following his musical path. Five years later the brothers started recording new singles with the producer Patrick Roberts and that quickly made them famous nationwide. Beenie has performed at Reggae Sunsplash in 1992 and the response from the audience was so positive, that the DJ now felt ready to take big steps further. With the singles “Praise Him”, “Word Dance”, “Defend It” and “Dis Unu Fi Hear” he has reached the status of the King of the Dancehall in Jamaica. In 1996, he has released his first “real” album called Maestro, which has been produced by Patrick Roberts. The following year he gained popularity in Britain with his (and Chevelle Franklin’s) “Dancehall Queen” single. That single and also its follow-up, “Who Am I,” were number ones in Jamaica, while “Who Am I” reached its place in the U.K. Top Ten. He kept on producing singles, that found their way up to the Jamaican chart that year and the next. The autobiographical Many Moods of Moses features a number of these hits, including “Oysters & Conch” and “Foundation.” After his performance at Reggae Sunsplash in 1998, he signed to Virgin Records in the U.S. and has released the dancehall classic, The Doctor. With his album Y2K in 1999, he had officially achieved superstardom. This has been also confirmed, when he took DJ of the Year Award in 2004. In the same year, the famous DJ has returned to his roots and dancehall with the Back to the Basics album. A compilation of his hits “From Kingston to King of the Dancehall” appeared in early 2005, and the album “Undisputed” (featuring production work from Scott Storch and Don Corleon) has been released the next year. Beenie Man is about life and truth, and his is success comes from being a ‘real’ entertainer in a “timeless fashion”. He still performs as outstanding as he was doing at the beginning of his ‘career’. Some say: “his energy radiates from the stage”.
