Messinian struggled through the adversity of poverty, homelessness, drug addiction, daily fistfights, and other things we won't discuss here. He rose above all this bullshit with the power of his family's Love and Music. Messinian believes that Love and Music are the two greatest gifts that can ever be given. When Messinian isn't traveling the world rapping at underground parties and raves, he is making beats at his studio in North Philly.
Messinian has performed at countless parties in the states and internationally including tours in Japan, South Africa, England, Austria, Macedonia, Serbia, South Korea, Holland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Australia, Costa Rica, Canada, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Venezuela, Lithuania, Belgium, Estonia, and many more. Messinian tours year round and once a year with DJ's Dieselboy, AK1200, and Dara as the Planet of the Drums crew. Messinian thanks all the fans, family, and fuckfaces that made his music and career possible. Love him or hate him...he will be spitting into mics until he is dead. ...show less
