NU3VO is a Latin Hip Hop group out of Central Florida and the originators of the new sound they have dubbed TRAPICAL. This unique blend of Trap, Tropical, and old school Hip Hop has been trailblazing the Southeast since 2019, when the trio: SIR ILL, MANIATICO, and FAME leaped onto the scene and began their takeover...city after city, show after show, breakthrough after breakthrough...NU3VO has amassed an ever-growing fan base. Drawing comparisons to some of their influences: A Tribe Called Quest, Cypress Hill, 3 Coronas, and Tego Calderon.
Repping Nicaraguan, Luisito Estrada. The Miami-born Reggaeton rapper has music flowing through his veins. It started with his father's blaring, eclectic, music styles...to drown out the violence on the other side of their four walls...to designing his own clothes as an adolescent. This Niko was bred for superstardom. Earlier in his career, he would tear up the Florida coastline with his former group: LOS DEMENTES. They left defining marks in local festivals like: Calle Orange and Calle Ocho. This group proved to be too small for this firespitter. He is now prime to put Nicaragua on the map, especially after the recent tragic uprising that received little to no media coverage. He plans to put Nicaragua on his back and spread their culture to the world.
Another Boricua representative, Luis Rivera was born in Chicago, but raised in the violent Humboldt Park. He started writing lyrics at the age of 14 as a means of escaping the streets. His music quickly absorbed the harsh realities of life. His music was a mix of the street life and harshness and a dose of old school flavor, where gangs used to battle on the dance floor. If he can influence the next generation to pick up a mic instead of a gun, then his vision would be fulfilled.
Born in Queens, New York to Puerto Rican parents. Jason Torres has been to hell and back and his style reflects just that. At the tender age of 15, he was basically on his own after losing his father (then 36 years old), to a tragic truck driving accident. Now a resident of Orlando, Florida. In his younger years, Jason would lead a downward spiral life...full of vices until the day, he meet his future wife. They have two beautiful daughters. It was during this time that his life turned around and SIR ILL was born. He took his pain and sufferings, mixed it with his newfound blessings and found his voice as the group's street poet, crooning and spitting his prophetic messages.
