ARTIST BIO:: YANKEE B biography 2001
For most of us, life is a series of ups and downs. For some of us, those ups and downs are more akin to a roller coaster ride at Six Flags or the highs and lows of their Free Fall ride. For Joseph Hannam aka YANKEE B, his life has been a dramatic full circle of roller coaster rides. This is a man who determinately set out with Gee Street/V2 Records to "prove a point" about New York's Reggae artists, and was disappointed with a short run.
