For the past 15 years Warrior King has been headlining festivals in Europe, the US, Jamaica and more. His new album “Rootz Warriors” delivers more positive anthems that his fans have come to expect.

In August 2010, Warrior King was recognized by the United Negro Improvement Association Marcus Garvey Awards for his contribution to music.
