When I turned 18 years old. I went to Art Institute, for Audio Engineer. I wanted to know how to mix, what are the best microphones to use, how to use plugins, what’s the best software, etc. I just wanted to know everything that had to do with music. I have a mixtape called ” El Despegue” which was my very first mixtape. I also, have another mixtape called ” Somos Pocos Pero…” which, it was a project with the “r.s. clika” Now I’m promoting my new mixtape ” NI DE AQUI… NI DE A.K.A“ Already working on a new project.

Also, my girlfriend, Jackie Valadez, encourage me every single day to keep doing music and she’s always pushing me to do more and not stop. Being a bilingual rapper, what are some of tha advantages you have compared to rappers who speak one language?

Mistah Wilson: Being a bilingual rapper, what are some of tha advantages you have compared to rappers who speak one language? 
Khriz-Z: I feel being a bilingual rapper has opened several doors in the music industry from both sides, speaking Spanish and English. By being bilingual, I have more opportunities to approach to a bigger audience. Also, my music can be listen to, not only in the U.S.A and Mexico, if not all North and South America and hopefully one day in Europe.
