Zunguzung: an archive of the lyrics of King Yellowman

This site is an archive of lyrics by Yellowman maintained by Brent Hagerman. My PhD research was on Yellowman's use of slackness and Rastafari. It is titled You can't go to Zion with a Carnal Mind: Slackness and Culture in the Music of King Yellowman. During my  research I interviewed Yellowman extensively about his songs. I also attempted to compile a discography, though the one listed below is incomplete. If you have suggestions for additions, please email me. Most of the lyrics included here have been transcribed by me, sometimes with the assistance of Yellowman. Feel free to browse and contact me with any errors you may find.
