Kimichi Records Presents: Recording Artist Xtr3me

Custom Search

Xtr3me - The rising of a young revolutionary, musical visionary on a mission, this is how his story began.

He was born Dwayne Nelson on November 1, 1992 at Spanish Town Hospital (St. Catherine, Jamaica) to parents Juandyln Scott and Wayne Nelson. Starting from a humble beginning, Dwayne grew up not knowing his father and at a very tender age moved to Clarendon to live with his foster grandmother.

The early years were rough the young Nelson recalled. However, in the midst of all his childhood endeavors, a beautiful thing began.

As a young vibrant youth, Dwayne found a passion and love for music. He was always singing, and there was no doubt in his talent even at that age as he sung lead on the Youth’s choir. Throughout his musical journey his destiny unraveled a truth to him that would later change his life.

In his eyes he saw inconsistency in the current religious beliefs of the environment he was in, and began his journey to seek his true identity. Music was at rest for a while but was not completely removed from the equation. It was of a different nature when his passion then reignited. This time in the form of dancehall music while he was in grade eight. It was entirely a different experience, joining forces and collaborating with Roiall a fellow artist and musician. Within that same period they formed a group and began clashing with other schools. To Xtr3me this was ok for a while but then another alteration occurred. After analyzing it all, Xtr3me had finally realized his true love was for reggae music. Reggae music brought him insight that no other genre had given, and his quest for identity had finally bared fruit.

Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Sizzla Kalonji, Mutabaruka, Beres Hammond and Dennis Brown all played a role in inspiring the young star to reach for greatness in creating and making reggae music. Xtr3me mentions “the old school music was saying something about the black man that I know to myself was true, and I felt like a king”. He was also an ardent student of Marcus Garvey and his very influential foster brother Ras Kemar who taught him about farming and independence. Both were great role models who made his choice to become a true Rasta even easier and more of a living reality. Many were disappointed after discovering he wasn’t locking his hair to be a fashion dread, but in adopting the principles of Rastafari.  The transition to Rastafari was not an easy road but would become one that would bring him closer to a greater identity of himself!
