Masicka’s musical journey started by performing at local talent shows and competitions in his hometown of Independence City in Portmore, more popularly dubbed by Masicka as “Sin City”. There were many talented Dj’s in Sin City for Masicka to learn from and compete against and the place became a training ground for Masicka in which he was able to build his sick lyrical style. Masicka continued to develop his special talent while attending Calabar High School. He was dubbed “The Future” by classmates and teachers alike, after toppling all competition with his advanced word play. By the time Masicka left Calabar, he had gained the acknowledgement of all there that he would likely become the next young recording artist to take over the dancehall music scene. Interestingly enough, Calabar is a school well-known to be a producer of some other great talents, including one of the greatest lyricist and Dj’s of this generation and perhaps in Jamaica’s history, the artist known as Vybz Kartel. Masicka’s flow is rapidly becoming known by dancehall enthusiasts to be similarly incomparable to that of Vybz. Like Vybz Kartel, Masicka is blessed with a crazy, sick lyrical ability and rides upon dancehall’s most current riddims with a swagger that is unmatched by most others. Masicka is a vivid storyteller who is able to bring you with him to experience the life in Sin City on his records. Now only remains to be seen whether Masicka can establish himself as a perennial top-artist in dancehall, with the longevity only experienced among the true greats of the business.
During his Calabar days, A friend of Masicka introduced him to another schoolmate known to be heavy in the local dancehall scene. The schoolmate, Leon “Kabah” Brown, had already been a songwriter and producer for notable recording artists such as Bounty Killa, Movado and members of both the Alliance and Gully Squad. The link between Masicka and Leon proved to help mold Masicka’s raw talent. Kabah became Masicka’s producer, along with fellow One Motion Music producer, Addis Pablo who is the son of reggae legend Augustus Pablo. Addis is a talented musician and producer in his own right .With the home-based recording studio which the crew call the base of One Motion Music and the super Dj, Masicka. There, the young crew, including up and coming singer/songwriter Ramone “Unique” Derizzio, endure sleepless nights with countless recording sessions and are free to create their own musical concepts. They record on quality riddims and practice their skills constantly so that when they work with other studios and producers, they never fail to leave a great and lasting impression.
