THIS WEB SITE IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION, BUT STILL FEEL FREE TO LOOK AROUND AND LEARN SOME HISTORY YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT
We at On Tha Prowl Records would like 2 say this, Cruton Bey put the Gangsta in Reggae like NWA put the Gangsta in Rap, he bring his message of truth buck naked and raw, It's time for a change and he bring that change that's long overdue in the world of Reggae music, this is why he designed his music for the internet only because it would be 2 much for terrestrial radio and it's listners 2 digest, 1% of my star people these people of earth are very confused when it come 2 the language of this dimension, they try and judge you by the way you speak and the words you use, but all those holy one are way off base and live in darkness like a mole, scientists have found Profanity is actually a sign of more intelligence - not less, People who curse have a larger vocabulary than those who don't, Psychologists have learned that people who frequently curse are being more honest and are not hypocrites like those who don't, People Who Curse A Lot Are Smarter, Funnier And Healthier, do some research and find out for yourself, you gonna have the devils and haters no matter what, Before we give this BIO, we want too make this statement of truth to the world, In 1993, the United Nations Center for Human Rights, recognized the Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Muur Empire as the Oldest Indigenous group of people on Earth. The registered Project # 215/93 ensued.….Cruton Bey the Moorish French Washitaw started in entertainment working on southern radio stations as a DJ under the wings of Clyde Pinkney & Sonny DeLoach known to his fans as "Sugar Daddy Sonny Honey", he bring a new underground style of reggae music 2 the table known as Reggaeism for his people, entertainment and education all in one, and it will not be heard on regular radio, because he use words in his songs to make sure you get the message of what he got to say, he is not afraid to speak the truth no matter who don't like it and his songs reflex how he feel about society and man in flesh, Cruton Bey as we have told you, is Moorish French Washitaw , his mother's Great Gran-mother was Washitaw (Moor, Native American/(Asiatic-Louisiana) and her Great Gran-Father was French European(so called white), and from the French West Indies, his father was of French and Moorish descent as well. He was taught his pedigree by his father's mother who raised him in the deep south and the family bond was tight and truth wasn't hidden, and he take his Gran Parents teachings and pedigree serious, because They who don't know their roots, is like an old dead oak tree, on the banks of a mighty river. All Asiatic skin didn't come to these shores of West Africa via a slave ship, She taught him to be proud to be Creole, and the Native American and French blood that run through his veins are the key to the human race, and a gift from Jah the most High God. He was influenced by his late Great Uncle James DeShay Sr a legendary blues guitarist and singer and night club owner, who also influenced the late great Howling Wolf and Lil Walter Jacobs, but he knew blues was not their native music but Island music was because of the French West Indies connection through his great great gran-pa. as a child he never liked the so called black music of R&B, and blues wasn't his thing, even though his mentor played it, he saw how easy it was to get caught up in a culture that's not yours, As he got older he became wiser and became influenced by The King of reggae_ Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Bujue Banton, Steel Pulse, Maxi Preist and many more reggae greats who gave him his true connections in this dimension. What our ancestors were, we are today without doubt or contradiction and there is no man in human flesh who is able to change you from your descendant nature of your forefathers, unless their power extend beyond the Most High God. He believe in the five highest principals known to man, which is Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice. And he know if the whole world smoke Jah's plant of knowledge, it will be a better place to exist in and it will heal the nation and the world, He have his own way and style of bringing the message to man by way of Reggaeism somthing that is hard for them to comprehend, he is not Racist and to be that way he would be Hating himself, since he carry the blood of both formulas of the human race in his veins. The things he sing about is real , nothing fake but the real deal and the truth can be a bitter pill to swallow for some, our people are crying about the same things today, just like they did 40 yrs ago and will be singing the same tune 40 yrs from now unless they change their tune, they changed history around on the asiatic people and they was here first, The King Bob Marley once said you can fool some of the people somtime, but you can't fool all the people all the time .........1 Love, Cruton Bey

St. Louis Blues And Jazz Hall Of Fame.......James DeShay--singer guitar player, recently passed away. Owned a club on Easton Ave. In the late forties he and Little Walter used to play on St. Louis street corners for money...............ST LOUIS BLUES.NET,,,,,,,,,,James DeShay's first "guitar" was a one-string rig he concoted by nailing a piece of baling wire to a post and tightening it with a snuff box. From that single-string instrument he was able to play melodies and change pitch by mashing down on the wire. DeShay's earliest influences included the great Charlie Patton, Howlin' Wolf and Robert Jr. Lockwood. James was already an accomplished guitar player when he moved to St. Louis in the mid 40's, when he struck up a friendship with Little Walter Jacobs with whom he played around town. James often also worked with Robert Nighthawk and Big Joe Williams. By the early 1950's he had his own band, and by the 1960's his own tavern which he operated and played in. (The BBC shot footage of James there in 1976 for part of the 'Devil's Music' series) his memory and music lives on in all his fans.
