The 'Tuff' deejay acquired his US visa and work permit recently, and is already making use of it. Rygin King is currently touring the US, having done his first appearance at a club in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sunday night.

It is no secret that established dancehall artistes have had tough luck acquiring US work permits. However, this was not the case for Rygin King.

"I don't have control over the visa markets or the embassies, but if young artistes plan fi mek international moves them just need to do the right things," said Rygin King. And by "right things", he explained it means putting out good music that promoters in Jamaica and outside the country will notice and buy into.

"Along with good music, I can only advise them fi stay out of trouble and watch them affiliations that is a major factor," he said.

According to the artiste's management, the deejay, who was the sole headliner for the event in Atlanta, managed to pack the house. Of his performance, Rygin King said: "It was a good look. Although dem tuff, di people a support because my performance in the States is something they have been anticipating."

He continued: "Georgia is a trap music community, so they loved what I had to bring to the genre as well as the dancehall. It

was a whole lot of expectations, but mi approach with the mindset to expect the unexpected, which is what people must do when it comes to One King."

EXPRESS MYSELF

Rygin King said that the performance was not particularly different from what people experienced at Reggae Sumfest except that he made sure the females were more entertained.

"The half-hour set was used to express myself, and since the audience was filled with ladies, songs like Missed Call and Feel Like This (Big Toe) were definitely a part of it," he said.

Rygin King believes that while Tuff, that has close to three million views on YouTube, it is the hard-hitting single How Mi Grow that attracted the international audience. He also noted that he has also been featured on international radio stations, New York's Hot 97 Fm and Jamz 101.5 in Atlanta.

"It means a lot to me that my music dancehall-trap music, is relatable, and with the amount of Jamaicans living overseas it helps to spread it further, so big up to the Diaspora," he told THE STAR.

Still on foreign soil, Rygin King is expected to perform in Hartford, Connecticut, tomorrow before jetting off to New York and Florida in the following week.

On the musical front, the deejay has released a new single, Legacy, which has already attracted more than 600,000 views on YouTube and has been trending in the top 10 since its release one week ago.
