Ezra Smith / Daddy Freddy - Send A Letter / Love Sweet Jamaica album
Born 1965 in Kingston, Jamaica as Samuel Frederick Small, assumed his wife's Nicole Nelsons name with the marriage. In 1987 Daddy Freddy teamed up with Asher D and, together with producer Simon Harris, created a blueprint for the first successful amalgamation of dancehall reggae (ragga - see below) and hip hop. Their debut album "Ragamuffin Hip Hop" sold reasonably well in the UK on Music of Life, in the USA on Profile Records and throughout Europe on various labels

Aided by his hit debut album Body Lasher, Freddy scored a remarkable six Top Ten hits in Jamaica during 1986, including a collaboration with Pinchers, called "Joker Lover," that topped the charts. In 1987, Freddy returned to the . where he signed with the Music of Life label and began working with producer Asher D. The resulting album, Raggamuffin Hip-Hop, was one of the first fusions of dancehall toasting with hip-hop rhythms, breaking a great deal of new ground
This album created even more interest for Freddy. Artists such as Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, David Morales and Norman all requested collaborations and others like The Prodigy, Me’lissa Morgan ("Through the Tears"), Salt ‘n’ Pepa and KRS-One all sampled his unique voice. Eventually Freddy broke the record four times taking it from 346 to 598 syllables a minute. Whilst he still lent vocals to prominent dancehall tracks in Jamaica his next major work did not come until he came back to the UK, with a new lease of life. Freddy teamed up with renowned dub producer The Rootsman in 2000 to make the new album, Old School – New School (Third Eye Music). Since then Freddy has been making new music and recording and training dancehall artists.

Album A Tribute To Your Taste - EP. I Love My Daddy Lyrics. When I was 6 my dad came to my bath Know what he said? Hear what he said! It only takes some spankin action For a little girl's satisfaction
Ezra Pound is generally considered the poet most responsible for defining and promoting a modernist aesthetic in poetry. And I love to see the sun rise blood-crimson. And I watch his spears through the dark clash And it fills all my heart with rejoicing And pries wide my mouth with fast music When I see him so scorn and defy peace, His lone might 'gainst all darkness opposing.
