Whoever said Hispanic MC's couldn't rhyme obviously were not speaking about David Ernesto Miranda, otherwise known as Mr. Miranda. Born and raised in Arizona, coming out of East Phoenix, Mr. Miranda has been rapping for over 10 years and is a true student in the art of music. He has conquered the originality aspect of it with a timeless style that instantly embraces the soul. Every verse written comes directly from the heart and you can hear the sincerity in it. Mr. Miranda has performed all over- blessing stages in various cities and states- giving the people good music and a great show. His plan is to make the world familiar with his music and who he is as an individual, not just as an artist. The passion for hip hop started in 1989 after hearing "Walk This Way" by Run DMC w/ Aerosmith. It was then that Dave really fell in love with the culture and became an instant fan. He then became aware of the other sounds and styles that were involved in the genre as well, like N.W.A, A Tribe Called Quest, Eric B. and Rakim, Too Short, Ice- T, and many others that influenced him in life.The passion grew larger and larger. In 1997 he recorded his first demo/pause tape at his uncle's apartment and gave copies to fellow classmates in school. Throughout high school he became a freestyle addict that would rhyme for anyone, anywhere, at any given moment, battling and just giving a show to all that witnessed. After the passing of his grandmother in 2000 though, Dave really became a bit lost in life not knowing what to do with himself. His grandmother was very close to him and therefore it hit him extremely hard inside. They say that sometimes the worst things that happen to us can also be the best things that happen to us, because it was then that he realized his calling for music and that he was put here to serve a purpose in this world. The journey quickly began shortly after and he started performing and recording more and more taking his decision in life very seriously. Then in 2004, he linked up with fellow AZ artist Novelty formerly known as Sulai and they began rocking shows all over town together but still as solo artists. His buzz began to grow and more people were becoming familiar with him. A couple years later he released his debut album "Melodic" with a Milwaukee producer by the name of Trellmatic. The two of them met on MySpace through a mutual friend and decided to build on a project together. He then went on his first tour with Sulai and another AZ artist named MG! The Visionary and traveled through the entire Midwest scene for a good month. They called it The Listen Close Tour. A year later he went out to Milwaukee and was able to meet Trellmatic for the first time and performed at the venue Stonefly with a few other Brew City artists as well. Since then, Mr. Miranda has progressed more and more gaining respect amongst his peers. He has performed with a variety of national acts from Cappadonna of Wu Tang, Common, to Ne-Yo and continues to grow each day as an artist. He was signed to River City Records in Feb 2010 and has released 3 solid albums titled "The Wonderful World of Mr. Miranda", "Let's Get on With The Music", and "The J & D Experience".Check out my track "Sunny"
