About this week’s artist:
Just when you thought St. Louis was done, here comes another unexpected, unorthodox MC. SANTINI The Great, born and raised in St. Louis, is nurtured by the same streets that brought you platinum recording artists Nelly & the St. Lunatics, and Chingy. SANTINI is truly in a class of his own. St. Louis has been infamous for the sounds of its artists and SANTINI is no exception to that rule. His soulful flow and unique sound and delivery capture the essence of the streets while keeping the content easy to digest and harnessing all cultures, crossing age and racial barriers with ease.
The name SANTINI is his original name, which is one element that is missing in the game right now: originality. A writer since the age of nine, now a seasoned vet, “The Great” (as he’s known to be called; his flamboyant alter ego) is no newcomer to the industry. He has participated in the following CD releases; most recently “Don’t Judge Me” (2018), “Thinking Out Loud” (2018), “Just Because” (2019), “Feelin’ Myself” (2019), “Wish Me Luck” (2020), and various breakout singles.
Pandora added the catalog of Santini The Great in 2019 amounting streams of over 136,000 in less than 5 months with 10 thousand listeners! Currently, Santini The Great has his newest project entitled “Where You Supposed to Be” the boast a collaboration with Sham (Interstellar), one half of the Grammy winning production team Track Stars. Touring is Santini’s main focus, as he enjoys bringing his music directly to the fans! Santini has dates coming up in Colorado Springs, CO, and at home at the Delmar Hall in St. Louis, MO with more dates to be announced soon.
The single “Where You Supposed to Be” was released on January 07, 2022, and generated over 260K streams on Spotify and over 60K YouTube video views. This song is the opus and missing piece to the present hip-hop lack of creativity as well as its “everyone is saying the same thing” ghost. Santini also boasts a successful collaboration with hip hop legend Chingy called “Tini Bop” released in April that has proven to be more than just a club hit with our fastest organic growth to date. It’s refreshing to know music is still birthing real artists, real musicians, real song makers that really do speak to us all. He says what we sometimes can’t and won’t say; without letting us know we’ve just purchased a product that just happens to be a one-man outlook on life, which is SANTINI-THE GREAT!
