Ron JahLypso was born and raised in the Saint Andrew parish of Surrey County, Jamaica. Before his migration to the United States, he cultivated a deep love for music, particularly the genres of calypso and hip hop. A friend of the family graciously offered him a place to live in upper Manhattan. It was there where he began performing where ever people would listen. He would play for the passengers at the subway, the customers at the laundromat, and the passersby at the street corner. It took many years of performing for Ron JahLypso to save up funds for his first official release, "Pineapple Pizza". His motivation is to spread the joy of Calypso and Hip Hop to all people, through his jovial, yet melodic, musical compositions.
