Biography

Watts grew up in the Oakwood-Vaughanmarker neighbourhood of Toronto. He was born to a Caribbeanmarker, musician father and a European mother who is a doctor. His father, who was a drummer in the reggae band Messenjah, taught him how to play drums when he was 2 years old, and professionally by the age of 5. Nicknamed "Stixs", he would open for the reggae band Third World at a concert when he was 7 years old. He also performed in front of a crowd of over 50,000 at the Rogers Centremarker alongside Nelson Mandela, at the age of 12. After his parents got divorced, he decided to become a producer, and he started making beats.

When Watts became serious about a career as a record producer, he made plans to move to New York Citymarker. He dropped out of high school in Grade 11 after a meeting with producer/DJ Kevin "K-Cut" McKenzie (of the legendary group Main Source). In New York, K-Cut took him under his wing and taught him everything that he needed to know.
