This musical melting pot has not only translated in his music, but also in his prolific lyrics that he pens in his songs in Spanish, English, Island Creole English.
Having honed his craft in all facets of the music industry such as production, event promoter, and formally studying music, RoataneanKid has already achieved momentous accomplishment such as major feature with top Billboard star “Busy Signal”, and collaborations with several prominent names in music, including Grammy-nominated producer “Noize”; “Magnifico The Beat Monster”; and top reggae and dancehall producers “Birchill” and “Blaqk Sheep.”

The catchy single produced by Navy The Best , and released under imprint label Mundial Music Entertainment, delivered a fun video directed by PhillyFlyBoy & David Flores.
Explaining how the collaboration came about, RoataneanKid explained “It was an amazing experience working with Ric. He’s a very cool, talented and super humble guy. We’ve known each other for about 2 years now. I had the record, told Rick about it. He loved the idea, and as fate would have it, he had a show coming up Roatan and the rest is history!”
Reflecting on his path and what’s ahead, the budding artist explained “I don’t limit my sound, my music and my dreams. My dad taught me that if you work hard, you can achieve anything. But if you sit and expect it to come, it may never reach, while my mother taught me self-discipline, and how making the right decisions now can benefit you in the long run.” he further added “but society as his other big supporter, it taught me that the only person that can limit my success is myself.”
