Freestyle was born and raised in the Grenadian town of Sauteurs. At the age of 12, whilst also representing both Grenada and the Windward Islands in the under 15s cricket team, he became musically inspired. Freestyle sees music as a gift, quoting, "You can take someone from music, but you can't take music from them."

It all began with small stage shows around Grenada within the dancehall division when Freestyle teamed up with a group called the Cellblock Crew. The first song he recorded was a parang melee, which he sang with the hills boys at Christmas 2002 in Grenada.

After graduating from college, Freestyle moved to England. In 2003, he enrolled in the UK army, which slowed the progression of his music career; five years later, again a civilian, he re-focussed on his number one goal. NyoBingy and Freestyle released Titivay, which was successful in the UK, USA and Grenada, followed by English Man and then Soft Brown Skin, and All About the Carnival.

In 2009, Freestyle King was nominated for Best Soca Male artist at the Soca News, Soca Music Awards, a huge honour. For 2010, Freestyle has kick off his season with Party Mix and the massive Jab Jab Storm.
