Up Life Street
This originally ran in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1992.
Yami Bolo is one of many new reggae artists worthy of
attention. He's been making a name for himself the past few
years now, and has justifiably developed quite a following.
Sounding like a mix between well-known singers Jr. Reid
and Ken Boothe, Yami takes their influences and injects his
own style. The result is a knockout. From the militant
opening track,"Blood A Run" (which was a big hit in the
U.K.), to the thoughtful "Mama Cries," these 10 new tracks
give us some of this talented singer's best work. You'll
even find some harmony vocals by superstars Sugar Minott and
One listen to Yami Bolo and you're hooked. The
captivating rhythms, conscious lyrics, and vocal delivery
make "Up Life Street" one of the better releases of 1992.
