Crusafix, born in Yonkers, NY, June 6, 1987, is more than familiar with the value of freedom. At the age of five, his father was sentenced to life in prison. Forced to grow up quick in Jersey City, New Jersey, Crusafix listened to hip-hop artists such as Doug E. Fresh, Notorious B.I.G., and DMX. At the age of 12, he began battling other local MCs and developing a name for himself.

His ability to bring the pain to contending freestyle MCs, as well as his capability of communicating the hurt, earned him the alias Crusafix. Being raised by his grandparents, his adolescence proved challenging for them. Though they did the best they could by him, he made some mistakes along the way.

Inspired by enduring hard times and the desire to show the world there’s more to life than negativity, Crusafix is determined to find a place in the hip-hop community. He has several stage appearances to his credit including opening for Big Sean, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Cassidy, Saigon, & Canibus. Armed with a unique sound, a surplus of deliveries, & original concepts, he is willing to “pay the cost to be the boss.”
