Introducing Stylo G


Stylo G has been involved in the UK underground scene since the age of 15 when he moved to the UK from Spanish Town, Jamaica. He quickly made London his adopted home and has caused ripples in various corners of the scene every since. This comes as no surprise seeing as he is son of the legendary dancehall artist Poison Chang.

In 2004 he broke into the underground whilst grime has it’s first peak and released ‘My Yout’ featuring Ice Kid and Sickman and by 2008 he won the Crystal Blue awards ‘song of the year’ for ‘Jamaicans in Britain’.

He continued to bridge between the UK sound and fused dancehall with hip-hop with a fresh originality. His willingness to collaborate with others and try new things meant he quickly stepped up the ranks and made connections across multiple genres. Check out this one he’s done with Toddla T.

2011 was an explosive year for Stylo G with the release of underground hit ‘Call Mi a Yardie’ which has become a carnival classic in London. But the success has become a global anthem receiving kudos and radio play in Japan, the USA and of course the Caribbean.

A regular performer for Rinse FM’s The Heatwave, Stylo has since collaborated on a number of tracks with artists such as Sneakbo, Cashtastic and Wretch 32 . More recently he’s confirmed his commercial success by featuring on this track with Clean Bandit
