King Jammy's young protégés are let out of the Ward to deliver their second album entitled "U Know How We Roll". Since the release of their debut set "Mentally Disturbed", Ward 21 have watched their popularity rise and garnered much respect within the dancehall world as topnotch performers as well as producers. Andre, Kunley, Randaldo and Mark or Suku, Kunley, Rumblood & Mean Dog as they are more affectionately known started out like many music junkie youths in the Kingston ghettos on various sound systems in their community. They were fortunate to gain their musical experience from one of Jamaica's most influential and groundbreaking producers King Jammy at his legendary studio situated on St Lucia Avenue, Waterhouse, Kingston JA, which is also where the members of Ward 21 grew up. In 2001 the hyped up Ward 21 dropped their much anticipated debut album "Mentally Disturbed", which established the outfit as an exciting new act. Their unique approach as captured on their own riddims such as "Bellyas", "Volume" and "Trilogy", provided a fresh twist in dancehall music.
