He has always displayed a profound love for music, going to great lengths such as going without his bus fare and lunch money for school in order to obtain copies of albums from his most adored musicians which is how he came by his stage name. In early 2000 one of His cousins accidentally broke his prized Jay.Z Cassette entitle Hard Knock Life. Owing to his level of Irritation His cousin nicknamed him Hard Knock Life which soon after was shortened to Knocklife. From an early age it was evident that Knock life was enthusiastic about Education, Life, Love, and his Music, proving wrong those who told him he wouldn’t make it and always thinking positively. It is this way of life that has caused him to persevere and make his name in a genre of music that many Caribbean artiest choose to steer clear of. Rap!
Knocklife has come a far way today from being the little country boy to a well sought after musician. His first break came in Late 2010 when he recorded his hit single “The way You Wine” featuring another prodigy “Minky”, which has received rave reviews from the dancehall public and media following the video release.
