Freestyler’s Playlist: The Music That Fuels Two-Time Caribbean Champ Kerron Ford

Kerron Ford is no stranger to success, competing in some of the world’s biggest competitions like Super Ball and Red Bull Street Style, while also holding six Trinidad and Tobago National Championships and two Caribbean Championship titles.

As one of the top freestylers in the CONCACAF region, it’s no surprise that Ford’s training routine is robust. While hard work is undoubtedly involved, he makes sure he doesn’t overwork his body, and separates his training sessions between uppers and lowers. Depending on what he is training, the music he listens to can vary in genre.

The music I play depends on the style that I will train,” Ford said. “Usually, if I am going to train lowers, I like hardcore music like rap, whereas if I am going to train uppers or blocks I prefer EDM, especially break beats for that.”

For his freestyler’s playlist, Ford shows his variety, switching between hip-hop legends like Biggie and Tupac to EDM staples like Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers.
