An intelligent, focused young man, he has been able to carve out a reputation for some of sickest rhymes and verses in dancehall over the past 12 months.

“The response so far has been phenomenal, ah one of the biggest songs in dancehall for 2013. I made the riddim, and I was at home ah listen to the riddim, and mi start deejay a Buju Banton ‘New Year, New Style’ because ah the same kinda tempo, and ah de so the song was born,” he said.

“ZJ Sparks drop it first, exclusive, and it surprised even me, and ZJ Dymond, Smurf link me and go the hardest two to three months on the radio. It got the proper radio play, given the feedback, we had to do the video, and the response has been great, 50,000 views on Facebook, and 20,000 plays on youtube,” Xyclone said.
“The video did well, a TV station ah France say it finished the year at #11 on their dancehall countdown. Ah the biggest song of mi career so far,” he said.
