RIP: Legendary Producer Philip "Fatis" Burrell

Legendary producer Phillip "Fatis" Burrell who was very influential in nurturing the careers of Sizzla, Sugar Minott and Luciano, was reported to have passed away early this morning by some friends, family and media personnel. However, our investigations of this report is contrary to that.

Fatis was admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies (Jamaica) over two weeks ago after suffering a stroke. However, since being admitted, his condition gradually became worst to the point that he fell into a state of coma.

Burrell later passed on Saturday evening after complications.

Phillip "Fatis" Burrell was one of Jamaica's most notable Reggae producers and founder of the Xterminator label. He has worked with some of Reggae music's most notable names. He has done production works for musicians like, Gregory Isaacs, Sizzla, Luciano, Marcia Griffiths, Cocoa Tea and AL Campbell, to name a few.

Condolences to his family and RIP to Philip Burrell! A true legend of Reggae Music!
