Mr. Funny [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Are there better Prince Jazzbo records out there? Probably not. This one might not have all the hits, but for those in search of one Jazzbo record to put on the shelf, this one is it.

If you're a fan of dancehall and you're looking for the roots, well, you've found them.
