Wikipedia

Tenor Fly was a British singer and rapper who rose to prominence in the ragga movement of the early 1990s.

Born Jonathan Sutter, Fly had been a member of Freestylers and has worked as a solo artist. Fly had been active in the music business since 1988, and was best known for his work with other artists, such as Rebel MC, Top Cat, Barrington Levy, and Sir Coxson Sound.

Fly died suddenly on 17 June 2016.

London label Nice Up! Records summed up Fly's life with a statement: "Without a doubt one of the legends of the soundsystem scene here in the UK and a talent that spread across the world. From dancehall, reggae and hip hop to jungle, his style and influence cannot be understated—an original roughneck rudeboy. Not only a consummate artist and performer, but a genuinely nice guy too. We don't use the term 'legend' lightly."
