Rayon A Powell, born in Clarendon, Jamaica. Third of four kids for his mother and last of two for his dad. He moved to America (Hartford, CT) when he was 11 years old to live with his mother. "Music has always been my first love" he explains but never actually thought of becoming a musician until he was 17 years old when his grandfather died. "He was my favorite person in this world and to lose him was devastating to me." The first song iKon ever wrote was a song about the death of his grandfather, it was called "Why." Even as a young kid, iKon idolized Vybz Kartel. He got the name iKon in high school. "Every time I would deejay for my friends in school they would say I could go to Jamaica and become a big dancehall icon, so they started calling me iKon. I loved the name so I kept it." He's no dancehall icon yet, but there's no doubt he'll become one with flows like those. iKon Flowz!
