Rygin King has emerged as one of the hottest names in the industry since his standout performance at Reggae Sumfest early this year. Racking up hit after hit in recent times, from ‘Things Go Change,’ ‘Tuff’ and ‘How Me Grow’, creating a buzz on the local scene, igniting the Dancehall space, the deejay is proud to be the first Dancehall artiste to get that big break in the business outside Kingston, or without the help of any established artiste.
Born Matthew Smith, Rygin King hails from Montego Bay. Declaring that he has had a passion for music since he knew himself, the entertainer said that he has been pursuing music professionally since he left high school.
The deejay credits much of his early success down to overcoming his obstacles. His determination to make it as an artiste has brought him to a place where his songs have become Dancehall anthems.
Rygin King hailing from the same parish as Tommy Lee Sparta, he discredits feud of any competition between him and Sparta.
In a short time, Rygin King has made ripples in the music industry with his trap-fused Dancehall singles, and is ascending to the Dancehall throne fast.
