According to his bio, he grew up in Houston and entered the music industry in the early 2000s as a premier underground rap artist under the Mexican/Chicano self-parodying alter ego “Chingo Bling,” which is an “over-the-top Mexican cowboy with an outrageous personal style that showed a juxtaposition between hip-hop and the Mexican/Tex-Mex culture.”
Chingo Bling has an innate ability to play with words and satire, earning him fans across the country for his music and stand-up comedy. Throughout it all, he stays true to his Mexican American identity, showcasing a culture that is often overlooked.
