Ryan Mark (Ryan Reynolds) a.k.a. Prodigy was born to parents Dennis and Beverly Reynolds on 20 March 1985. He spent most of his youth living in the Kingston 8 area where he grew up with two brothers and two sisters.

He later moved on to record songs for well-known producer Danny Brownie, who produced his debut album, The Chosen Prodigy, in July 2005.
