Nego Hights "The Warrior" was born in the Caribbean/Central American country of Belize. He was raised in the quaint and rather quiet village of Biscayne located in the northern half of the Belize District.
Nego Hights was born in a time when it was not the norm to wear dread locks, however the positive and out spoken truths and rights musical stories of the Great Peter Tosh and Legendary Bob Marley soon caught his attention. This was the base on which a subconscious decision was made to become an artist. Over time the dream would dwindle as school was the main focus but during his last year in high school he was exposed to the fiery sounds of Sizzla Kalonji & Anthony B. It was at this point he embraced the Rastafarian philosophy and culture.
The warrior (N.Hights) have been waiting eagerly for the right moment in time to show case his musical abilities.
