BORN is a hip hop recording artist from Boston Mass. Born took a liking to music at the age of 11 after watching his older brothers freestyle and beat battle in the project hallways. He soon built up the courage to join in and became recognized as the youngest, most lyrical mc in the neighborhood. Dominican and african american descent, Born grew accustomed to all likes of music such as Jazz, reggaeton, rap, soul and rnb, all of which has influenced his sound. In 2011, Born joined forces with fellow Boston artist G Dot through out the years of 2011 to 2016 they were able to do songs with legends such as Ed-O.G who later served as a mentor for Born. Several years later Born released his mega single "Hot Topic" feat. Quavo of the Migos. The song went on to receive over 4 million streams. Born is currently working on his new project with the Grammy winning producer Zeytoven and will be on tour through out 2019.
