“If you want to be a rockstar or just be famous then run down the street naked, you’ll make the news or something, but if you want music to be your livehood, then play, play, play and play ! Eventually you will get to where you want to be ” - Van Halen

He credits his art-filled family background and upbringing coupled with years of experience internationally as the progressive catalyst for his talent on the turntables. Having lived and made his mark in the US for the last decade, his work includes sharing the stage with world renowned masters of the music scene such as Nas, Rick Ross, Chrisette Michelle, Vivian Green, Damian Marley, Collie Buddz, Sizzla, Capleton, Members of the Big Ship & Morgan Heritage Families in Reggae as well as local exports such as Nameless, Red San, Jaguar, Jose Chameleone, Stella Mwangi, Wahu, Amani, Jua Kali to name a few.
