1 . RHYGING
Vincent “Ivanhoe” Martin (1924–9 September 1948), known as “Rhyging”, was a Jamaican criminal who became a legendary outlaw and folk hero, often regarded as the “original rude boy”. He became notorious in 1948 after escaping from prison, going on the run and committing a string of robberies, murders and attempted murders before he was gunned down by police.
In subsequent decades his life became mythologised in Jamaican popular culture, culminating in the 1972 cult film The Harder They Come, in which he is portrayed by Jimmy Cliff.
