The Incredible Journey of Rapper Alex Arteaga

A few months ago, Alex Arteaga was sitting in his room when he decided to do some freestyle music renditions. Unbeknownst to him, his brother was recording the freestyle video that was later uploaded on the internet. According to Arteaga, what was more shocking to him was a phone call from his friend who informed him that his clip was trending. This was when Arteaga stepped into the global limelight and found his calling. Music is something he believes he will be doing for the rest of his life. Here is a look at his incredible journey.

Alex Arteaga is a US-based rapper and songwriter. He is popularly known for his songs “Like Me” and “Savage.” He is also working on releasing his latest single in the coming month.

Arteaga developed a passion and interest in music at a very young age. He recalls accompanying his parents to their choir practice, and he would just sit at the back listening to them sing. Later, he also started singing both at church and in school, and at one time, Arteaga joined a singing competition at his school, which he won.

As Arteaga grew older, he began creating his own music, but he didn’t release it. He says music was an escape and a haven. It was a place where Andrew Arteaga could go when he felt like giving up or unhappy. Arteaga kept a book in which he could write his music and later used his lyrics to make recordings. 

After he finished high school, he was ready to take the next step and make his music dream a reality. Arteaga says he will always be thankful for the support his parents and siblings have shown him every step of the way. He says even in those moments that he felt like giving up, they were there rooting for him and encouraging him to keep developing the talent they knew he had.

While his first song didn’t become a hit, Arteaga didn’t give up. He continued making music, and through hard work, resilience, and great passion for music, Arteaga made his breakthrough. He says waking up to see his clip trending was one of the most rewarding experiences in his life. The support from the online community was also encouraging, with many touting his music as the future of rap.

As Arteaga continues to thrive, his journey in the industry is far from over. As stated by him, he has new music that he is producing next month. Additionally, he is planning a global tour where he will get a chance to meet and interact with his growing fan base.

At times when encountering many obstacles, success may seem impossible. However, if you are determined and work hard, you can attain your goals, says Arteaga. His advice to upcoming artists is to never give up on their passion and be consistent. Believe in yourself, and don’t let the naysayers weigh you down. He adds the need to be authentic in everything that you do and always strive to be better.
