No cause of death was given, but Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness said in a statement the visionary died while in the Noel Holmes Hospital in Lucea.
“Today Jamaica has lost the rhythm and soul of a prolific music icon who has inspired many,” Holness said in the release.
“Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry was truly one of the most important and creative figures to have come out of Jamaica.”
In 1968, he formed his own label, “Upsetter Records.” His first major single, “People Funny Boy” — a jibe at Gibbs — was praised for its innovative use of a crying baby recording, early use of a sample.
He gained fame both in Jamaica and abroad, especially in Britain, drawing acclaim for his inventive production, studio wizardry, and eccentric personal.
Perry’s layering techniques were the stuff of legend; he used stones, water, and kitchen utensils to create surreal, often haunting, sonic density.
According to lore, he created drum effects by burying a mic at the base of a palm tree, and wove the sound of marijuana smoke blown into a mic into his works.
“You could never put your finger on Lee Perry — he’s the Salvador Dali of music,” Keith Richards told Rolling Stone in 2010.
“He’s a mystery. The world is his instrument. You just have to listen. More than a producer, he knows how to inspire the artist’s soul,” Richards told the magazine.
“He has a gift of not only hearing sounds that come from nowhere else, but also translating those sounds to the musicians. Scratch is a shaman.”

Citizen TV’s Trevor Ombija has been unveiled as one of the presenters on Ramogi TV which is set to be launched soon.
On Wednesday, November 24 Royal Media Services released a promotional video in which Ombija was named as one of the faces of the new station.
“In the Luo nation and Kenya as a whole, we mark a new dawn. From the Royal Media services we bring you the latest news through reporting from our journalists,” the TV anchor stated.
From Nation Media Group where he was also a news anchor, Trevor joined the RMS family in 2018.
Ramogi TV will add to RMS’s list of media stations like Citizen TV and Inooro TV.
The conglomerate run by SK Macharia also controls fourteen radio stations across the country.
The radio stations are Radio Citizen, Ramogi FM, Inooro FM, Musyi FM, Chamgei FM, Muuga FM, Egesa FM, Bahari FM, Mulembe FM, Wimwaro FM, Sulwe FM, Hot 96 and Vuuka FM.
The shifting of media landscape over the years especially following the digital migration, increased access to the internet and digital platforms, and continued proliferation of mobile devices.
This has led to the fragmentation of audiences and the growth of vernacular TV and Radio stations.
