Bottaboom is a 17 year-old rapper who has been making music since he picked up the piano at the age of 6. Born in Philladelphia, he moved to South Florida at a young age where he currently resides and still attends high school. He was highly influenced by artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nas, J. Cole, and Kid CuDi. Botta gets his inspiration from daily events and problems, and, as a bi-racial kid of Ethiopian and Filipino descent, he is dedicated to telling the story of anyone who was ever categorized, had a hard time fitting in, or was told they could not do something. His freshman mixtape, Sleep Well, is set for a November release. With his innovative flow and thoughtful lyrics, he hopes to be a fresh breath for fans of hip-hop in an era of commercial/generic rap music.
