Rap music has been reigning worldwide since the 90s till now. In the past, when  we talked of Rap Music, America was the  country that came to mind, but the genre in time has spread its tentacles to other continents. It is rather rare to see rappers who rap in just more than one language, but rapper, Blackson, raps perfectly in English and Italian.

Blackson residing currently in Leeds, in the United Kingdom, attended an Art and Design High school called Liceo Artistico Statale Umberto Boccioni, in Italy. He is  currently pursuing a degree in Entertainment Management course at Leeds Beckett University, in UK.

Simpson started doing music when he was 16, back in Verona, Italy. Blackson explained that he started with music because it was the only way for him to connect with his friends and to feel accepted in his group, because most of them were able to improvise rhymes and Freestyle and he was the odd one because he could not do it. Fast forward,  two years later, he was already on major stages, battling other Mc’s and winning rap battles here and there.

Some memorable contests he won was firstly, in 2002 at Valpolicella Sound Park. He was a first runner up in the freestyle contest, clashing with Dank MC, one of the greatest exponents of rap battles in Italy. Secondly, in 2013 he took part in “Italy’s Got Talent” and the third edition of “MTV Spit” conducted by “Marracash”.
