Another great talent’s life cut down way too soon.
Reggae legend Gregory Isaacs has died after a battle with cancer.
Isaacs, who was 59 years old, died on Monday morning at his home in London where he spent part of his time.
He leaves behind a wife and children.
Close friends told BBC Caribbean that he had originally been diagnosed with cancer of the liver which had then spread.
The Jamaican reggae singer, who was nicknamed the Cool Ruler, was best known for the song ‘Night Nurse’.
Gregory Isaacs’s first album came out in 1975. The last was released in 2008. In addition to “Night Nurse” being a basement party staple, his song “If I Don’t Have You” was immortalized in Hip-Hop by Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty.”
