The legendary producer and artiste manager had been a patient at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) Mona, where he had been admitted two weeks ago after suffering a mild stroke.
Mr. Burrell took a turn for the worse last Tuesday when doctors discovered a blood clot near to his lungs.
At the time of his death, Fattis was the manager for reggae artiste, Sizzla.
The family of Philip ‘Fattis’ Burrell wishes to thank friends, well-wishers and the staff at the UHWI for their care and support and ask for your prayers at this time.
One General... One Guru.... One of the Greatest Teachers i nd i ever known.... Knowledge that was invisible to the fool is wat he used to issued... No words can describe how detremental it is for the world to lose a man of his stature at this time... But we shall continue to wave the banner of Jah Righteous Warriors!
Live on Guru nd we shall continue to b pleasing in ur sight refuse to let u down... Words cant express how grateful i nd i am to have had the pleasure of listening nd learning from such a great man... The World is a much different place today but we shall continue the fight!!! The wicked shall not see the light of day... As the General would say ' Punch dem bloodclaaat wid di music... This is a war!"
Live on Fada Fattis!!
Philip "Fatis" Burrell (b. Kingston, Jamaica, d. 3. December 2011) is a prolific Jamaican record producer, who runs the Xterminator record label. He has been one of the most successful producers of the digital reggae era.
Born in Trenchtown, Burrell spent part of his childhood in England before returning to Jamaica as a teenager. His first production was Sugar Minott's "More Dogs To The Bone" in 1984, starting the Kings & Lions record label in the same year.
In 1986 he started the Vena label, releasing early works by new artists that he had discovered such as Sanchez, Pinchers and Thriller U, and established artists including Frankie Paul, Gregory Isaacs and Charlie Chaplin. By 1989, Burrell had founded the Exterminator (later Xterminator) label, which in the early 1990s released records by Ninjaman, Ini Kamoze, Admiral Tibet, Cocoa Tea, Beres Hammond and Johnny Osbourne.
