Born to the world as Cardin Campbell, this musical prodigy was destined to become a composer. Cardin was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, but was raised in mean streets of Bronx, New York. Raised in a Raggae/Dancehall family, Cardin was always very fond of watching his father sing and perform. And it was around the tender age of 5 years-old that Cardin’s love of music began to grow beyond measure. “I loved to perform and sing,” Cardin remembers. “ But that changed when I discovered how Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones worked together with music and motion pictures.
