Conversations with KAYRXN

Today we’d like to introduce you to Karron Jordan.

Hi Karron, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I first started making music at age 15; around that time, all of my brothers had a rap group called “Underground Soul,” I’m not going to lie. I desperately wanted to be a part of that group. I had always been known for writing poems, jokes, and puns, but it wasn’t until I wrote a freestyle to an Eminem instrumental and showed it to my older brother Carlos that I stepped foot into becoming an artist, and I never looked back since. Over the years, I would do everything to perfect my craft, not just music-wise, but my image. I would carry a championship belt around, which started as a way to get rid of stage fright and blossom into a staple piece of my wardrobe. It got to a point where after the pandemic, people kept asking when I’ll bring the belt out again, which brings me to the mask. Really who would have thought a shocker mask on Amazon would bring me to the point I am now? I remember my first performance with it, too; the crowd didn’t know what to think because no one in the city was wearing a mask as their persona at that time. The crowd even named me “KAY MYSTERIO,” which has been my alter ego ever since. I look to improve with the mask, perform more and continue to make the music I do now. And as always, Buy More Masks.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The biggest struggle I have faced has been building relationships while also managing my music. One thing I’ve realized is I’m a very busy person. I’m a full-time musician and run my own company (KAYRXN STUDIOS), not to mention setting up shows/tours for myself alongside my brother, TÄCO. It wasn’t until the release of “The Roc’N Tac Connection” when it set that the amount of time I have for people is limited.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a Recording Artist/Audio Engineer. I do recording sessions for local Baltimore artists daily and performances by night. The biggest thing I’m proud of is the evolution of my branding. I mean, now I have stickers, posters, QR codes, and all mask-related. I don’t know anyone else who would record professional artists in a Lucha mask, and if you do, odd are they got the idea from me respectfully.

Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs, or other resources you think our readers should check?
I’ve always struggled with holding on to money. There’s this book I was given a while back called “You Need a Budget,” an absolute lifesaver. But my accounts have drastically changed after reading the book and applying its practices. Recommend that book.
