When you are able to fuse words together and add a melody in all but 2 minutes, you must be international recording artist Lyrikal. Trinidadian born Devon Martin started singing in the church choir at the age 7, once he realized he could actually sing he began participating in school talent shows and neighborhood block parties. As a youngster his biggest inspirations were Crazy, Shabba Ranks, Buju Banton, Bob Marley and Super Cat their styles of music helped him to develop his own style.
He migrated to the United States at the age of 13, where he got heavily involved in soccer and track and field, but music prevailed and by age 16 he was back at it, performing at block parties and talent shows, it was fun and he loved it, he even opened for the Wutang Clan at Club Wave and Sean Paul at St George, Staten Island.
