“I was born in the Dominican Republic in 1991, with racing in my blood. From a young age, I was fascinated by fast cars and because of this, my friends started calling me nitro-r.
I became passionate about music and especially reggaeton when I first heard it playing on the radio at the age of 8. I idolized Daddy Yankee while growing up, as he was one of the pioneers of reggaeton music. I started freestyle rapping at 17 and recorded my first song at 22. My main music genres are Dembow, Reggaeton and Latin Trap. I enjoy living a calm life and always put God first.”
