Dirtsman, whose real name was Patrick Thompson, was a Jamaican dancehall artist born on June 11, 1973, in Spanish Town, Jamaica. He started his music career in the mid-1980s, recording tracks for a number of local sound systems and producers.
In 1990, Dirtsman released his debut album titled “Acid,” which featured the hit single “Hot This Year.” The song became an instant hit and helped to establish Dirtsman as a rising star in the dancehall scene.
Dirtsman continued to release successful singles and albums throughout the early 1990s, including “Thank You,” “Bun and Cheese,” and “Sleng Teng Mix-Up.” He was known for his distinctive style, which blended elements of dancehall, reggae, and hip-hop, and for his powerful and energetic performances.
Unfortunately, Dirtsman’s promising career was cut short when he was tragically murdered on December 21, 1993, at the age of 20. His death sent shockwaves through the Jamaican music community, and he is remembered as one of the most talented and promising dancehall artists of his generation.
