— FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE —
Hailing from the Bronx, New York, by way of the Dominican Republic, Dominican-American
rapper LightUpp is an Afro-Latino artist that mixes the style and flavor of his Latin
heritage with his lifelong love for hip-hop and street culture. As an engineer,
producer, and studio manager, Lightupp has been instrumental in co-producing
and developing the sound of buzzing artists like Cream Da Villain, Nuri
Hazzard, and R&B duo Oshun. As an artist, he has stepped out into
his own light and proven himself as a capable leading man, with
records like “Limpin” and “New Range” showing both his
versatility as an artist and his ability to deliver a
charismatic performance on camera — worthy of an
Oscar or at least a Webby, some might say.
His considerable online following of over 35,000 people is a testament to the quality of his
artistry and his personal character as a man. With influences including Big Pun, DMX, and
Ludacris, it’s no wonder that Lightupp is on the path to becoming a legend in his own right.

With a fan base that spans from New York to Brazil and a sound that incorporates pop,
rock, funk, hip hop, Brazilian carioca, and so much more, it is rare to find an artist
so diverse and yet so relatable to so many. His music is statedly for all those who
appreciate great beats and instrumentation overlaid by raw lyrics and ear-catching
melodies. It is an exposé of life as a man who has escaped poverty in one of the
roughest enclaves in America for a young man to grow up, and speaks to the
better world he seeks to create for himself and those around him.
Though his influence is still growing, Lightupp is certainly an artist to watch over
the next year and maintains a coveted spot in the hearts of many. His future
is certain to be a bright one.
