DJ Ranking Trevor (1952 -2012) helped pioneer the use of toasting, the Jamaican form of rap that served as a precursor to hip-hop.

He cut his first record, aged 15, before achieving success in the UK reggae charts in 1977 with "Cave Man Skank" and " Three Piece Chicken and Chips".

Died in a motorcycle accident in Kingston, Jamaica in 2012.
