Since the 1990s he has established himself in the nascent underground hip hop scene as one of rap's most crystalline talents, first with the Sacred Schools collective (formed by him, Dargen D'Amico and Jake La Furia) and since 2003 with Club Dogo (a group featuring him alongside Jake La Furia and Don Joe). In 2011 he released his first solo album, "Il ragazzo d'oro," which was acclaimed by both public and critics and immediately followed by the success of 2013's "Bravo ragazzo"; in 2014 he became the first Italian artist in history to release an album ("Vero") under the auspices of the legendary Def Jam Recordings label. To date, he has released a total of nine solo works in 12 years (plus the 2016 joint album with lifelong friend Marracash, "Santeria"), all of which have rightfully entered the Olympus of Italian music both in terms of certifications and pivotal importance to the development of Italian hip hop.
