Linval Roy Carter (September 3, 1951–September 11, 2013), better known as Prince Jazzbo, was a Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay and producer. Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, Carter began recording with Coxsone Dodd's Studio One label in the early 1970s under the name Prince Jazzbo. He went on to work on his own releases with Bunny Lee, producing as well in collaboration with many artists as a vocalist and producer for labels including his own, Ujama. His best work was probably done in collaboration with legendary producer Lee "Scratch" Perry. The seminal recording Super Ape featured Jazzbo toasting on "Croaking Lizard", one of the most distinctive reggae songs made.

The murky sounds coming from Black Ark studio and the Upsetters were unlike anything else being done on the island. Prince Jazzbo and fellow toaster I-Roy had a well reported, but friendly and mutually beneficial on-record clash during 1975, including the cuts "Straight to Jazzbo's Head" from I-Roy and the retort, "Straight to I-Roy's Head" from Prince Jazzbo. Prince Jazzbo's early work with Clement "Coxsone" Dodd at Studio One produced several hits in 1972-1974 including: "School", "Fool For Love" and "I Imperial". His first hit in 1972 with Coxsone though was a version of Horace Andy's "Skylarking", which he re-worked as "Crabwalking". Carter died on September 11, 2013, at the age of 62, after a battle with lung cancer. Read more on Last.fm.
