Being credited one of the pioneers of modern latin trap is just the surface of what Messiah has accomplished since his launching his music career in 2010. He was the first Latino rapper from NYC to sell out Stage 48, play MSG three times in a year AND step foot into the Spotify offices. His lyrics are those of swag and pride. Messiah is of Dominican background, and describes his music as the combination of what he would hear his family playing and the hiphop songs he’d hear through the busy streets of NYC when he was growing up.
