A wrestling fan, an artist in his own right Tha Mask Rapper has been the underdog of his journey. Combining his love for wrestling, spoken word, and graphic design he developed a persona leaving his audience wanting to know more. His luchador mask gives us early Rey Mysterio vibes but there is a kind demeanor within him. We met him at the We are Wrestling Welcome to The Bronx event looking for the venue and he was kind enough to help Ivy and Muffin with the mini muffins help find the event. Since then he introduced us to more promotions and helped widen our view of the independent wrestling scene. The artist once a trained wrestler gives us insight into his life that we did not know about him.
