Mister Yellowman was the DJ's first album with henry ‘junjo’ Lawes, and remains one of his best.

Backed by the seminal Roots Radics & Earl "Chinna" Smith's Hi Times band, the deep roots that both created were further finessed by Lawes into a simmering stew of dancehall-inflected rhythms shot through with dub. Thematically, Yellowman drifted between boasts about his appeal to the opposite sex & vignettes on everyday life, many delivered with a sly humour that was the secret to his success. Yellowman spoke directly to the lives of regular Jamaicans while effortlessly riding the rootsy rhythms.
