About PATO BANTON:In the Mid 1980’s a young and hungry Pato Banton was making noise in the UK and an integral part in establishing a vital Reggae culture in the European nation. After rehearsals and shows around the UK and Europe and a classic Mad Professor collaboration already under his belt, Pato went on to record his second album “Never Give In!” It is this record that remains Pato’s best selling record to date and the most celebrated by the numerous American musicians who have come to proclaim him among their greatest influences. The Beastie Boys famously sampled the lyric “I do not sniff the coke I only smoke sensimilla” on their Paul’s Boutique record. And, Queen Latifah’s biggest hit “U.N.I.T.Y.” was a direct interpolation of Pato’s original lyrics as well. Everyone from Sublime to Jack Johnson to Damian Marley to countless others continue to hold Pato and his influence in the highest of regard.
