From the first day they have started playing sound, Masta Simon and Sami-T, and other members of Mighty Crown always had a bigger aim, which was to bust their sound in foreign. They started living in the United States from the early 90's and gradually learned the Jamaican language and the dancehall flex by hanging out in studios, record shops, and in the streets of Brooklyn, NY. They started playing at local clubs in Brooklyn and Manhattan around 1992 and eventually lead their way to the World Clash '99 held in Brooklyn, NY. On their first appearance in World Clash '99, they defeated sounds from Jamaica & the United States and became the first Japanese sound to get the World Clash trophy.

Since then, they have been touring major cities in the United States (New York, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, Washington DC, Virginia, Connecticut, New Jersey, and etc.), the Caribbean (Jamaica, Antigua, Bermuda, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia, Barbados, St Kitts, and etc), and Europe ( England, Germany, Switzerland, and etc). Starting in year 2000, Mighty Crown teams up with Irish & Chin ENT and strengthens their works International wise.
