Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Cupid Valentino! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Cupid Valentino: Since I was a baby I was in love with music, I actually took my first steps to a speaker playing some music. I really got in tune with making music when I was 12 years old with a group of my friends. We use to make music every day after school and one of there cribs and formed a group called "TYG".We performed at schools & talent show and after that I developed a more passion for music and I knew that I wanted to be a entertainer.
The best advice that was giving to me was to stay consistent and ride your own wave; be yourself.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I use to put together parties around the city and use to be the MC for the party while my brother was the DJ and every time I held the mic it felt like a concert in the building.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
