The great and dreadful Rastaman Joseph Hill, may his soul rest in peace on the wings of a dove.
There are no words that can express the great grief and sorrow that I n I and all righteous idren feel.
The words of Joseph "Culture" Hill shall ring throughout all the world and all eternity. With their message of sufferation and hope down here in babylon, we must all trod on to Mt. Zion and never get weary as Culture Hill sang and work on till Jah Jah come.
He was a great and mighty inspiration to all who face and suffer tribulation in babylon.
I shall always remember his words to live my life by.
Give thanks and praise to the Almighty for the mighty works of Joseph Hill.

Guidance and protection to all idren and sistren.
Jah Live.

I and I too worried if there would be another Teacher like the Great Joseph Hill in these turbulent times that we live.Kenya has been hit by a tribal war triggered by flawed presidential electins which was held in December 27th,2007.If Hill would have been alive by then am sure he would have touched Kenyan hearts and the tribal war wouldn't have had a place in Kenya.All in all may he get the eternal rest he deserves as his legacy lives on in the globe...

Joseph the great, is indeed a preacher of goodnews. Like the spirit of the Lord is upon Joseph Hill, for the past thirty years, nothing at all could stop him from spreading his message against war, oppression, crime, discrimination, poverty, racism, corruption and injustice.

Mr. Joseph songs penetrate bones. JAH LIVE

Toyota Toyota where have you gone.
To the recall center where you belong.
First you go in and then you go out
Only to find your tailgate went out.

"Stay away from blood, Eat healthy and Follow instructions by God" are a 3-piece advice obtained from Joseph when the Group Culture visited Kenya the last time. Man OB, your 'One Grandson' has been mourning this prophet Rasta since. I recall when I saw and shook hands with him last at his mighty performance at NYAYO STADIUM, Nairobi in early this decade. The prophet looked strong and never weary. What do I say now that the only hope I have to see him again is when Jah remembers him in the coming resurrection! I remain the one grandson, and will keep away from the penitentiary wall.....as Joseph Hill advised me...! Awika Ob H, Texas.

Joseph Hill.A good teacher,a charismatic singer,a humble man is what the world has taken.Though it is like this,he has left his piece of mind behind.
Those who are willing can still get his piece of mind from his music and straighten their lives.
The hero has moved on but he has left a rich trail for us.

Rest in cool piece..
