El 9ino is a rising NY/NJ based artist who just dropped a hot new EP titled “Stay Home Dad”. His father was a young army vet immersed in the hip hop culture with an affinity for weapons (Wild Style). His parents split when he was 3, so he spent his weeks in Queens, NY and his weekends in the Bronx, NY. El 9ino’s mother was a teenage mom helping her mom raise her four siblings and him. She loved the street life and street guys loved her. She was able to flip her relationships into a legitimate business. Fast forward to El 9ino’s 20’s where he took a break from Wall Street to take care of his newborn daughter and his mother who was fighting a terminal illness. The result of all this adversity and the extended version is what you hear in the Stay Home Dad catalogue.
