Artson

Artson has always had a love for the arts of Hip Hop. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, it was the dance that first caught his eye and opened the doors to the culture that would eventually transform him and become his life. He first discovered B-boying (breakdancing) on the basketball courts, parks, and streets of nearby neighborhoods where he grew up.

After appearing on stage for the first time a few years later, he fell in love with rockin’ the mic for the masses, and his quest to be a musical artist was born.  In the mid 90s, Artson and some friends got their first set of musical equipment; a four track, a sampler, and a mic. Recording, sampling, and buying records became part of their daily ritual.

He currently lives in Long Beach and continues to travel throughout the world performing and giving back to the community by throwing bboy competitions and Hip Hop festivals designed to educate the youth about Hip Hop culture and preserve the arts. Having graduated from pupil to teacher, Artson professes to always remain a student of Hip Hop culture.
