    KINGSTON, Jamaica — Winston Riley, an innovative reggae musician and producer, has died of complications from a gunshot wound to the head. He was 65.

    Riley died Thursday at University Hospital of the West Indies, where he had been a patient since November, when he was shot at his house in an upscale neighborhood in the capital of Kingston, his son Kurt Riley said Friday.

    Riley also had been shot in August and was stabbed in September last year. His record store in Kingston’s downtown business district also was burned down several years ago. Police have said they know of no motives and have not arrested anyone.

    He worked with and produced for musicians including Gregory Isaacs, Johnny Osbourne, Sister Nancy and Buju Banton.

    he is also the producer of this.. sampled by so many (Nas Busta Rhymes etc etc)
