The Dominican-born Bad Bunny, also known as Benito Antonio Martnez Ocasio, was born.
He is a well-known rapper and singer from Puerto Rico who describes his music as Latin trap and reggaeton. While mixing in other genres like rock, bachata, and soul, his deep, slurred voice and distinctive sense of style are what made him most famous.
The singer has also worked with artists like J Balvin, Farruko, Residente, Arcángel, Jhay Cortez, Daddy Yankee, and Rosala throughout his career.
The rapper gained popularity on SoundCloud while working as a grocery bagger and enrolling at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo. He later signed with a record label.
His breakthrough single, “Soy Peor,” and his joint work with Cardi B and Drake on the songs “I Like It” and “Mia,” which reached No. 1 and No. 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100, respectively, helped him become well-known in the latter half of 2016.
Bad Bunny is of Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry.
Bunny, who is now 28 years old, was born in Almirante Sur, Puerto Rico, on March 10, 1994, under the zodiac sign of Pisces. He is Dominican because his father is from Santo Domingo, the country’s capital.
He also claims Puerto Rican heritage and both American and Puerto Rican nationalities. A height of 5′ 6″ and a weight of 75 kg characterize the vocalist.
Additionally, from the time he was 14 years old until 2013, he started composing and producing his interpretations. He released Get through SoundCloud the following year, in 2013, Tentacion in 2014, and Just Let Me Know in 2015.
The rapper started his solo career on SoundCloud in 2016 while working as a bagger at Supermercados Econo in Vega Baja. Similar to this, DJ Luian was impressed by his song and hired him to work for his record label, Hear this Music.
The Mambo Kingz production team was astonished by Bad Bunny’s musical creativity and appearance when DJ Luian first introduced her to them.
The rapper Bad Bunny’s parents, Tito Martnez and Lysaurie Ocasio, welcomed him into the world.
Bad was born and raised in the Puerto Rican neighborhood of Vega Baja by his parents, Lysaurie Ocasio and Tito Martinez.
His father, Tito, was a truck driver, and his mother, Lysaurie, was a teacher. Bad Bunny listened to merengue, salsa, and Juan Gabriel’s “Abrazame muy fuerte” while helping Ocasio with chores.
He boasted of having a good upbringing and not having spent his childhood loitering around the streets but rather choosing to spend time with his family at home.
He attended church with his mother because she was a devout Catholic and sang in the church choir.
His mother, Lysauire, wanted him to be an engineer, just like his father wanted him to be a baseball player, and a teacher thought he would be a firefighter.
In addition, after leaving the choir and performing “Mala Gente” by Juanes on his own in a middle school talent show, he starts to take an interest in the singers he hears on the radio, especially Daddy Yankee and Héctor Lavoe.
Bad Bunny was raised alongside his two brothers, Bysael and Bernie Martnez Ocasio.
Bunny Martnez Ocasio grew up in a stable lower-middle-class family of devoted Catholics with two brothers, Bysael and Bernie. While his brother Bernie is 25 years old, Bysael is 20.
El Conejo Malo frequently takes Bernie along. He even has a small cameo in Bad Bunny’s most recent song video, Yo Visto As, where he worked with people like Colombian actress Sofa Vergara and Puerto Rican pop singer Ricky Martin.
The relationships between the three brothers are good. Bysael, Bunny’s youngest brother, is pursuing a baseball career after graduating from high school at the Beltrán Baseball Academy.
