To know Julius is to know music. Born in the rural and out casted outskirts of Sea lots, Port-of-Spain, in Trinidad & Tobago, he allowed the challenges of his community to be his passport towards his true passion in life. At a very young age you would find him taking part in community activities, talent shows, and always the first person to showcase his talent amongst all his friends. In his first major performance at the tender age of 9, he performed for Prime Minister ANR Robison at a Christmas ceremony, where he would later be tagged as the village's talent. In 1991, Julius was featured and performed on a track with David Rudder entitled, "The Future Belongs to Me", which instantly became an anthem for the youths of that era who were facing a drug crisis on the rise in the country. After the recording of that track, the song and video instantaneously became a record hit. The song gained international appeal and was recognized by Hillary R. Clinton, who would later use the song as a theme for her drug-free campaign in colleges and high schools throughout the United States.
In later years, Rodney was highlighted in a group called Yard Men college, which also drew the attention of Machel Montano. Upon working on a number of songs alongside fellow musicians and cast members of the Xtatik/Mad bull crew family, Julius also shared the stage with many fellow Caribbean artists as well. . He performing alongside international artists like Red Rat, Lord Nelson, Kevin Lyttle, Maximus Dan, the Mighty Sparrow, Walker, and Buccaneer, just to name a few. He's also performed with Shaggy, with his mega hit “It Wasn't Me” when Rik Rok wasn't available for a performance in Trinidad.
