Matthew McAnuff
1986 – August 22, 2012

Matthew McAnuff was an up-and-coming Jamaican reggae singer and son of celebrated reggae veteran, Winston McAnuff (also known as Electric Dread).  The 25-year-old McAnuff was beginning to make a name for himself throughout the island’s roots reggae clubs and beyond.  His most recent single, “Be Careful,” which was produced by Earl “Chinna” Smith, had found an audience in France.  He was soon to release its follow-up, “If You Want War.”  According to various reports, McAnuff got into an altercation near his home in Montego Bay, Jamaica which resulted in his being stabbed.  He reportedly died from his injuries before help could arrive.
