Bounty Killer

Bounty Killer (born June 12, 1972) is a Jamaican ragga and dancehall singer. He first rose to fame in the mid-1990s, when Kingston-area police began shutting down clubs with lyrics that promoted "guntalk". At the time, Buju Banton and similar artists were moving towards a more socially aware feel. Bounty Killer emerged as hard as anything in the late 1980s, refusing to tone down his demeanor. Since, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have made headlines throughout Jamaica for their rivalry, as both claim that the other has stolen his act. His latest release is The Fifth Element (1998).
