Originally formed 1979, He's the original member and still producer of the popular Hip Hop group the Blak Prophetz. His music production works has earned him a reputation and is still considered a sort after producer. What started as a highly respected local UK band they soon progressed into major global sales arena. Their music can be found globally especially in the USA and Japan.

He has demonstrated that he cannot be tied down to one specific genre and it is such diversity that allows him to play with all musical flavours to match the current trends. He is of descendent of the family of drummers from Jamaica, the son of an old respected music Reggae DJ from Jamaica who worked from Florida and Atlanta Georgia spending most of his young life buying Reggae, Doo Wop & Soul to assist his sound system in Jamaica in the 50's to the 1980's in England.

The young Sure Shot's turned to the drums, D-Jaying with his father and radio drama when he was 13. Having been a drummer in a funk & rock band in his early teens you can understand why his rhythm section in production had often given off such power. He has managed to have worked with many reputable musicians including what he would call the ones who inspired him the most which includes Afrika Bambaataa, Joyce Sims and Ced Gee of Ultramagnetic MC's, Dawn Penn, Glen Goldsmith, Fonda Rae and many more.

Sure Shot's techniques has been compared to the likes of DJ Premier, Paul C in some instances and has always been heavily involved in the Jazz scene having worked with the likes of Us3 and Urban Species, It was Giles Peterson of Radio One who introduced Sure Shot to Mintos of The Urban Species back in the mid 90's.

The first track known to be released by this band can be found on a rare compilation called "The Wheel Project" which was a community project for local talent.

After a long discussion, the Blak Prophetz agreed and released a track entitled "Feel the Force". This track got the Blak Prophetz their first real record deal with a small independent record label called GTI/Kick in Records based in West London, United Kingdom. It was with this label that the Blak Prophetz released another track entitled "Fax on Wax", which for legal reasons only came out on a limited edition promo.

The Blak Prophetz were soon signed by Tony Powell Director of Pinnacle Entertainment, London who had his own label called Kold Sweat Records. It was with this label the Blak Prophetz release the track called "Chapter One".

Sure Shot of Blak Prophetz started to get requests from bands and artists all over the world asking for assistance with their productions. This meant that the Blak Prophetz was somewhat put on hold for a short period so that Sure Shot could complete his productions and projects. DJ Sure Shot has worked with/collaborated with Ced Gee (Ultramagnetic MC's), DJ Tony Tone (Cold Crush Brothers) and Afrika Bambaataa.

In 2011 Sure Shot's work was submitted for Grammy entry nomination. The nominated work is that of the band namely The Soul Garden, Grammy entree for nomination for 'the Best RnB Song' which Sure Shot Produced and collaborated in.
