Sikka Rymes is gaining international attention following his role as the Worl’ Boss, Vybz Kartel in XXXTentacion’s Royalty music video.
Released last Wednesday, the video is the second trending video on YouTube, and has been viewed more than four million times.
The Damian Fyffe-directed visuals are Jamaican-centric, paying homage to XXXTentacion’s Jamaican heritage and also captures some of the island’s icons including Bob Marley and Augustus Pablo.
Kartel’s verse was shot in his Waterford, St Catherine, hometown, and also highlights the Gaza camp.
The track also features Ky-Mani Marley and Stefflon Don, and is expected to form part of XXXTentacion’s upcoming project, Bad Vibes Forever.
The rapper, whose given name is Jahseh Onfroy, succumbed to injuries on June 18, 2018, following a shooting incident in Florida.
About five months prior to his death, he took to Instagram to share his excitement about the Kartel collab, stating. “Vybz Kartel featuring XXXTentacion, coming soon, lol only the Jamaicans and Hispanics know what I’m talking about!”
This buzz aside, Sikka Rymes is currently promoting his single, Stay Strong, produced by Vybz Kartel Muzik.
The deejay was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago, and penned the song in honour of people fighting similar battles.
