Bio

Every artist struggles, whether it’s creating music, gaining exposure, or choosing between buying groceries or more studio time, every artist, successful or not, has hit a brick wall. For many, the solution may be saving up extra cash or going hungry for a day or two. For some, the solution is as drastic as leaving your home country to follow your ambitions and dreams.

Hip hop artist Konstantin knows this first hand, coming a long way from his homeland in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, a post Soviet Country. Konstantin's first introduction to rap was by none other than Tupac Shakur at the age of six.

He would listen to Tupac religiously on his tape player until he fell asleep each night, even though he knew little to no English at the time. He loved the way Tupac was able to inspire people and now uses his voice to inspire others as well through his music.

Even so, his dream of becoming a professional hip hop artist was impossible, a puff of smoke that hovered over an unscalable wall due to poor neighborhood he was from. That is until he found other like-minded individuals who rented a place for them to breakdance and freestyle in private.  And even though they were pursuing their passions, Konstantin was still unsatisfied. He wanted to see and be part of the rap industry and knew he couldn’t do that from Uzbekistan.

So at the age of 19, he left home on his own to move to America with little money and no friends, in order to make a name for himself.
