Jason Pinnock was born on 29 July and he grew up in the inner cities of Kidd Lane, Kingston, Jamaica. He attended school at St Georges College and his love for music became evident when he was in his 8th grade when he began deejaying lyrics on countless occasions. This gave him confidence to continue pursuing music and he was then nicknamed ‘Showtime’ because of the popular riddim of that time and it was at this time that he began embracing his passion and moreover started composing songs for himself. In 2003, Pinnock established a relationship with Kidd Lane area sound “World Rock” where he recorded his first dub for Bazzle Kat. His main influences were artistes like Bounty Killer, Shaggy, Capleton, Cobra, Aidonia and many others and these also influenced his electric, heavy core sound. In 2007, Pinnock was introduced to the iconic Aidonia by his friens, Govana and Kemar Tull Malcolm and this is when his name was changed from Showtime to Shokryme. In 2011, he released “War Start” on “Our World Riddim” which was produced by Gerry Digital of Gerusalem Music. In 2012, Pinnock did his first collaboration with Aidonia and the J.O.P family “All 14″ which was followed up by the single ‘Life Affi Better” produced by Ancient Records on the “Pure Wata” Riddim. He then released another single on the “Hot Yeer” Riddim titled “Dead Bad”. In 2014, Pinnock released his debut mixtape titled “Ghetto Voice” which was produced by Gerry Digital. A follow up mixtape titled “Young Rula” followed in 2015. Pinnock has since been featured on Toddla T’s BBC1 Extra Freshman Freestyle which has given him a lot of exposure.
