The rising of a young revolutionary, musical visionary on a mission.
He was born Dwayne Nelson on November 1, 1992 at Spanish Town Hospital. 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.
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!
The music fraternity will hear a lot about this youth in the years to come.
