Courtney Monroe was born in 1970 in Kingston, Jamaica. He began singing while he was still in high school in St Andrew. Monroe started off his career at Black Spider Records before hooking up with Stereo One Sound System where he worked with Ricky Stereo, Daddy Freddy and Boy Blue. This is where he released his first record titled “Screechy Across The Border”. His other hits, “How Long Will Your Love Last”, “Key To Your Heart” and “Exploiter” were produced by Technique Records. Monroe’s international charter “Bad Boy” in 1986 furthered his influence in the dancehall scene. He recorded for every producer and recording company on the island. For King Tubby he did “Tell Dem” and “Ninja Me Ninja”, for Robert French he did “Modern Girl”, for Harry J, he did “Put It Down”, for Prince Jazzbo he did “Downpressor”, for Redman he did “Rootsman”, and for King Jammy he did “Can’t Get We Out” and “Wake Up Lil Susie”. His 1989 album “Modern Girl” is regarded as one of the best dancehall albums out of Jamaica. Monroe’s career paused after he suffered injuries from a motorcycle accident. He was out of the music scene throughout the 1990s. He later returned and collaborated with artists like Anthony B and Ujama.
