"A Hip-Hop Shape- Shifter"

-    Kristopher Rivera



El Paso Texas. Thats the first thing that needs to be said in my bio because it alone says so much. It tells you where I’m from, what I represent, and tells you so many things about me with just that. I grew up in the central area with my mom, 2 sisters and little brother. I was 6 years old when my father died but I remember a lot about him. I have many many childhood memories. I used to get bullied in school which is pretty common in reality but everyone finds a different way to deal with it. That’s how I started writing poems. It allowed me to forget any negative situation I may have been going through and eventually I started doing it for fun. When I was in high school, I realized that I could turn my poems into raps if I put them over a beat. I started rapping at parties and kickbacks with my friends and one day one of them invited me to their “studio”. I went and I was hooked. I knew that its what I wanted to do. Make music. I was introduced to a producer by the name of Cas who I started working with on a regular basis. He introduced me to the LFDC guys where I automatically fell into place. They had the energy and talent that I needed to surround myself with and they quickly became my friends. Professionally, I’ve only been doing this for a little over a year. I’ve been in a lot of studios with a lot of great people. I decided I needed to work on music full-time so I quit my job and moved to Vegas to work closely with my manager, DS Junior, and get things going. I have been working hard on my album that dropped in March of 2016. I spend as much time as I can promoting it and performing on stage because thats what I love to do! I feel alive when I’m on stage. But when I truly live is after my shows when often someone will tell me that I’ve inspired them. That they love my music. That’s when I know I’m doing the right thing. Thats when I know that I can’t stop.
