In an interview with The STAR, Rymes says he has been ready to take the music industry by storm for quite some time, but expressed that after the endorsement from the ‘Worl’ Boss’ himself, he will be kicking things up a notch. “My style as an artiste is different and that’s why the Teacha say wah him say. I’m coming to bring a new thing to dancehall, a new flavor from a new face,” he was quoted as saying.  Sikka Rymes is the cousin of former Gaza member Shawn Storm, who was introduced to Kartel while he was still attending school in Portmore.
