KINGSTON, Jamaica (September 12, 2013)--Rap reggae performer Prince Jazzbo has died in house in St. Catherine Parish, Jamaica at 62 after a long fight with lung cancer, his daughter, Princess Omega Carter said Thursday.
Born Linval Carter, Jazzbo started his career in the early 1970s at producer Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One.
One of his best known tracks was "Croaking Lizard," produced by dub legend Lee "Scratch" Perry and he was also known for "Crab Walking" and "Penny Reel."
He had a lyrical feud with fellow reggae rapper I-Roy.
The two deejays sparred with each other in a 1970s musical clash, with Jazzbo releasing taunting tracks like "Gal Boy I-Roy."
He is survived by three daughters and two sons.
