Lyrivelli was born in raised in Crown Heights Brooklyn, NY, by two both his mother and father who have Dominican heritage. Lyrivelli became immediately interested in becoming a rapper after one of his best friends played 2Pac, “Keep Your Head Up”. From that point on Lyrivelli worked on his craft and created stories from his perspective. He lists 2Pac, Nas, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar as his influences.
Lyrivelli is a unique rapper in this current age of hip-hop, where most new artist are focused on the beat instead of the content, Lyrivelli is focused on both. He can give his exceptional perspective on what is it like to be a man and grown up. One advantage he has over other artist is the fact he has worked as an engineer. He has engineered projects for Big Daddy Kane, Maino, Jim Jones, Dave East and Uncle Murda. Which gives him the advantage sonically when it comes to engineering his own projects. His latest EP As A Man, dropped on June 28, 2019. It takes the listener through his personal journey of becoming a man and staying true to what he believes in.
