Daddy Freddy started to perform with various sound systems from a young age, most notably Sugar Minott, who launched the rapper's career in his native Jamaica and the United Kingdom. In 1985, Freddy launched his first single, Zoo Party, on the Studio One label. The innovative Raggamuffin Hip-Hop came out two years later, blending dancehall and hip-hop. In 1987, Freddy entered the Guinness Book of Records with a rap that clocked in at more than 500 syllables per minute. Slowing his impressive pace during the 1990s, Daddy Freddy bounced back in the early 2000s. Since then, he divides his time between studio and stage.
