Made up of Masta Simon, Sami T, Cojie and Ninja, for over three decades, Mighty Crown has entertained the masses with top notch sound clashes and shows, rooted in Reggae and Dancehall music. Maintaining close connections to Jamaica, the renowned sound who originated in Yokohama, Japan, displays respect for the amazing island’s robust music and culture in each performance.
Mighty Crown has amassed fame and achieved many accolades over their storied journey. In an iconic career moment, “The Far East Rulaz” were hand-picked by Japan’s late Prime Minister Shinzō Abe to attend and perform at an exclusive, invite-only dinner welcoming Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness to Japan. Much to their credit, Mighty Crown is also featured throughout Caribbean-focused media and mainstream music and fashion outlets, including Rollingstone, Billboard, GQ and many more. Mighty Crown is celebrated for putting in the work!
In addition, Mighty Crown’s myriad of businesses and commercial ventures have catapulted the sound to a prime position, worth further cultivating. The sound system now represents the smaller component of their brand. Retiring the sound allows 100% focus on other business sectors, such as their record label, clothing line, event production and endorsements. Although the sound may be playing their “Final Round,” Mighty Crown will continue to make their mark as Asia’s most prominent Reggae Ambassadors.
The renowned sound system has made history as the first to ever have a sneaker/shoe collabo. The Far East Rulaz zesty shoe game is impressive, raking in collabos with Nike, Mita Sneakers, Le Coq Sportif, Clae and Diadora. Mighty Crown closed 2022 on an all-time high note, partnering with Clarks Originals for a second time. From this union, Mighty Crown puts their unique stamp on the classic Wallabees made popular by Jamaican music and culture, Reggae in particular. Notably, Mighty Crown became the first Reggae act in the renowned footwear company’s 200-year existence to get a full endorsement.
“The Final Round Tour” and 30th Anniversary commemorations will officially conclude with the “Far East Reggae Cruise” — Asia’s first ever Reggae-themed cruise on July 15-20, 2023. Now booking, the cruise will serve as the ultimate farewell event for Japan’s premiere Reggae act.
