"I fell in love with studio one at around 14 years old" says Mas, now 23. "I've been told that I'm an old soul, and I always took to the music of the older generation. Even before I had the life experience to make sense of a lot of the subject matter, the emotion put into songs like "Let Them Say" by Bob Andy or "Pretty Looks" by the Heptones always captured my ear. The sweet melodies and harmonies didn't hurt either." Mas chuckles.
Being dubbed the "New Millennium Rasta", MasSicker has still managed to keep a great respect and reverence for the foundation of the music and has an extensive knowledge of the history of reggae.
"No matter how far InI may branch out" says Mas, "the root and the foundation of our music is critical to InI strength and I am fully cognizant of the debt I owe to the likes of Joe Higgs and Alton Ellis. I intend to honor their memory and preserve their musical legacy while continuing to move forward musically and do Jamaica proud."
Now "King Mas" has jumped into his musical time machine, voicing a sweet lovers tune about a walk down memory lane over Bunny "Striker" Lee's classic "Gorgon" riddim. A melodic tune about a chance encounter sparking an old flame.
