From an early age he was drawn towards the lifestyle of Hip-Hop culture and Jamaican Music, especially songs sung in Spanish – a style originating from Colon, Panama, in the 80’s and which started to arrive in Spain a decade later.

When he was 14 years old it was already common to see him in a multitude of Hip-Hop jams throughout all of Spain performing with the other members of Ozm Posse.
From the beginning he was recognized for his crude Rap-Ragga style and participated in innumerable collaborations and demos evolving into the Singjay whom we all know today.

In 1999 he released his first single, «Smooka”, with Mc and producer Souchi. This song
was included in his debut album «La Esencia 1».

In 2001 he counted on Souchi and Dahani, amongst others, to produce his first solitary album «Ozmstayl». This album was a surprise to many for its originality in adapting and combining
Jamaican music and Hip-Hop in Spanish. This album became a reference in understanding
the evolution of Ragga and Reggae in Spain.

His recognition by the public and the critics and his years of live performances in club venues and festivals throughout all of Spain confirm the authenticity of his career.
He has shared stages with such notable artists such as Capleton (Jamming/Colombia 2013),
Public Enemy (Territorios 2010), SOJA(Summer Jam/Alemania 2010), Third World (Rototom 2013),
B Real (Expogrow/Irun 2102), Apache (Barcelona 2013), Anthony B (Rototom 2010),
Turbulence (Mount Zion Fest. Andorra 2013), Saïan Suppa Crew (Viña Rock 03), 
Gentleman (Madrid 2004), Kafu Banton (GanjaTime-8, Cosas Que Contarte Tour 2005-08), 
L.K Johnson (Portugal 2006), Dj Muggs (Sevilla 2011), General Levy (Downtown 2006), 
Daddy Freddy (Berlín 2007), Alton Ellis, Kymani Marley, Anthony B, Alika y Boomer (Chile 2007) and Zion The Promise Land (Venezuela 2007) and with recognized Sound Systems such as Unity Sound, Fireinnalion, Nyahbingi, Wadada, One Blood, Kiki Sound, Barbass Sound, Mono Sound System, Chalice Sound

In October of 2004 he released his highly anticipated second album «Cosas que Contarte»
(Taifa Records). The influence of Jamaican music is once again evident and the album portrays a more complete and defined concept of the artist and Morodo himself recognizes:

“… I am true to myself, my beliefs and my feelings. This is how I go about my work. I sing what I feel,
I feel what I say, and I say what I know, who feels it knows it …”
.

This second album which sold more than 16,000 copies began a new era. Then, together with the production and representation of Taifa Records he completed a noteworthy tour at the national level which confirmed his presence on the Reggae scene in Spain.

In 2006, he began his international debut performing for the first time in Belgium (Soundstation), Holland, Portugal (Carviçais Festival) and Germany (Popcorn Festival).
This same year he also crossed the Atlantic for the first time to present his music live and performed
in Spanish speaking countries such as Chile (Teatro Caopulican and One Festival 2007)
and Venezuela (Reggae Por la Tierra 2006 and Caracas Reggae Festival 2007).

He became a member of One Love Crew, which collaborated with the Comunidad Rastafari 
(Spain, Panama y Chile). This same year he began his «ONE LOVE TOUR» (Santiago, Valparaiso, Bogota…) with the intention of collaborating with the most marginalized neighborhoods in each of the cities he performed in. Now, after having 2 years with tours in Latin America, Morodo’s affect and popularity is evident.

After almost 6 years, in 2010 he returned with his 3rd studio album «Rebel Action» (Tafia Records).
With this new album he completed a significant tour with his band Ranking Soldiers.

«Rebel Action Tour» brought him to the most important venues and festivals in Spain,
Summer Jam Festival (Germany) and various shows in Latin America (Chile, Mexico, …).

In 2011, he began the second part of his «Latin Tour» together with the Mad Sensi Band and visited countries such as Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. This year he also created the recording, publishing, and booking agency Mad91.

In 2012 he began his «Latin Family Tour» together with his band the Mad Sensi Band and
Ganjahr Family. They performed in Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Chile.

In 2013 he released two new videos as advances for his next studio album.
These were “Fumo Marihuana” recorded in Amsterdam, and “Burning Song” recorded in Valencia, Spain. This same year he also performed in Rototom Sunsplash and Viña Rock in Spain and
the festivals Siempre Vivo Reggae in Chile and Jamming Fest in Colombia.

The 30th of September «Reggae Ambassador» was published with Mad91. This was his 4th studio album which contained 14 songs and collaborations with artists such as Movimiento Original,
Mikey General,KG Man, Mandinka Warrior, Donpa
 y Mad Division.
Songs were produced by More Love Music & Ciro Princevibe, Segnale Digitale, King Bratt, Heavy Roots, Foward Ever Band, Jimi Rivas & Dj Tee, HDO, Vik Bass, and AF Mvsic.
The songs were recorded at Mad91 and Okoumé Estudios with the exception of Burning Song performed by Heavy Roots, which was recorded at The Boxer Studio by Saul Wolf and mixed and mastered by Full Baastards.
The Lp version was mixed by HDO in Mad91 and mastered by Genis in Reggaeland Studio.

The 25 of January, 2017, Morodo returned to his origins and the essence of Hip-Hop from his earlier releases with the song “Hip-Hop Sparta” and a clear message:

Hip-Hop is culture not a business. Hip-Hop is Sparta”.

«Seguiré Cantando» was the second single of 2017 and it combines to perfection the elements of Roots, Electronic, and Dancehall. This rhythm was produced by HDO.

In August of 2018 he released the single «Esprando al Sol» with HDO. Pandemia Films was responsible for the video. Paradise Seeds also took part in this video.
