Jamaican Rude Boy

Desmond Gumbs directed an independent film called Rudeboy, The Jamaican Don back in 2003 and now it is ranked one of the most popular films with Jamaican origin.


The film is held in the same esteem as classics like Shottas, Belly, and The Harder They Come according to the International Movie Data Base. Desmond Gumbs skillfully directed actors, mixing Jamaican talent with American stars.

In order to broaden the international appeal of the film he starred well know Jamaican reggae singers as actors including Jimmy Cliff, Ninja Man, Marcia Griffith, Ninja Man and John “Ras Kidus” Cornelius. The combination of seasoned Hollywood talent and the Jamaican talent proved to be a winning combination.

Mr. Gumbs is a positive example for aspiring young producers. John Ras Kidus Cornelius, who has starred in more than one of Gumbs productions, explained in a recent interview that Mr. Gumbs made him an international star. “I’ve gone on to star in a tv episodic Tektive, that I produced. I also starred in two more feature films since my big break in 2003 in Rudeboy. I brought many of my Jamaican born singer/actors into Gumbs productions and the opportunity to be a part of a movie that has become popular around the world is more than money can buy.”

Rudeboy, The Jamaican Don has become a worldwide classic starring La Nease Adams, Nahtasha Budhi, Jimmy Cliff, John “Ras Kidus” Cornelius, Mark Danvers, Marcia Griffith, Beenie Man, Ninja Man, Courtney Unda-Privilege Nevers, Michael Taliferro, and Tarita Virtue.

Desmond Gumbs continues to work on his entertainment projects in the current rough and tumble rollercoaster of film financing and production with a big feather in his cap. Rudeboy, The Jamaican Don.
