Linton Kwesi Johnson (aka LKJ, born 24 August 1952) is a Jamaican dub poet who has long been based in the UK. In 2002 he became the second living poet, and the only black poet, to be published in the Penguin Modern Classics series. His performance poetry involves the recitation of his own verse in Jamaican Patois over dub-reggae, usually written in collaboration with renowned British reggae producer/artist Dennis Bovell

Artist: Linton Kwesi Johnson. Album: Tings An' Times, 2007. Has been played on. Grenada 1. Radio Kyak106. 1. United States 1. Jah Music Mansion. Linton Kwesi Johnson quotes. The more I read my poems, the more I find out about them. I still read them with the same passion I felt when I wrote them as a young man. Now playing: Coldplay Something Just Like This.

Johnson's poetry, still delivered in his semi-tuneful sing-song voice, takes on greater musical force on this record, blending in almost seamlessly with the band. Bovell has also taken some chances on this record, namely in the arrangements. There's a lot of busy horn work here, and the rhythms pop and roll more vigorously than ever before, but this doesn't detract from Johnson's intensely lyrical writing, which has rarely sounded more determined.
