Biography

Like a bolt of lightning from the sky, Rasta messenger Warrior King has burst upon the scene, utilizing his gift of song to spread Jah truth throughout the land.Warrior King was born on the 27th of July, 1979, in Kingston’s Jubilee Hospital, soon moving to Clarendon, then settling in the growing city of Portmore at age eleven. “From birth I’ve always loved music, but it was not until I attended high school at the age of thirteen that I thought about it as something I could do myself,” Warrior King explains. “At that time I followed Bounty Killer’s style, but then my friend Warrior Mark, him said, ‘You have the potential. You have the talent.’ From there I started increasing my own thing, and with encouragement from my peers and inspiration and t’ing, the music started to flow.”

Like many successful Jamaican entertainers, Warrior King gained his earliest stage experience in talent shows. “I started out with school concerts at first,” he says. “At the time when I just came inna music, I used to do some combinations with a yout’ named Likkle Blacks, Marlon Stewart. We used to do Tastee’s Talent Show together, so we could really start getting exposed and gain experience.” When he first started out Warrior King chatted in a hardcore deejay style, like his original hero, Bounty. A switch to the more holistic “singjay” sound came gradually. “It’s a natural thing what just grow inside of me, even without me realizing,” the singer reasons. “People started telling me they hear I can sing now. So, really and truly it’s just a natural change.
