S’natra is the son of two Dominican immigrants, born and raised in the heart of Harlem, New York City. After several years in the underground New York rap scene, staying relatively under the radar and unnoticed, he linked up with another NYC native – producer Ivan Jackson of Brasstracks . Finding common ground in their love for New York, they immediately started writing his first full project. Jackson, who picked up GRAMMY wins for the production of
Chance The Rapper’s “No Problem”, took S’natra under his wing, and in him, S’natra had finally found a producer who believed in his talent and had the skills to bring out the best of him. 2 years on, S’natra has toured with Brasstracks at major venues and festival’s across the US, leading to signing with CAA and is preparing to release his debut mixtape, “Subject To Change” produced entirely by Jackson.
Representing his real struggle growing up Harlem, “Subject To Change” gives us a glimpse into S’natra’s world; his hardships as an emerging rapper, balancing family and music, finding his own voice, and figuring out a way to support himself in the process. It also brings back an East Coast feel, a nod to New York classics such Nas’ “Illmatic” while still catering to a new wave of Hip Hop fans that stream rap music more heavily that any other genre, allowing artists such as S’natra to self release projects to the masses.
S’natra and Jackson are already hard at work on a follow up project. Having created a specific style together, they are now pulling in other producers to continue developing his sound, and they’ve been securing collaborations with the likes of Made In TYO and to solidify S’natra’s place in the rap world. The most exciting thing perhaps, is the support system behind him. Touring all over the world with Brasstracks, S’natra has created a strong network of his own. Having proven he can hold his own in front of crowds of 100 people or 50,000 people, there is a community of artists and producers around the world rooting for S’natra.
