Born into a family of Middle Eastern refugees, Fresno, California, rapper Analyst has long held the traditional views of immigrants who come to the U.S. looking for opportunity. When life wasn’t quite what he expected, the young MC turned to hip-hop as an outlet to express his emotions. Now 20 years old, he is ready to set foot into the mainstream scene with a remix to his underground hit, Way I’m Livin’. On the new run-through Analyst recruits Arab-Canadian rapper, Vico, to form a strong brotherly force; one that will probably make the remix get spins on several reggaeton stations across the nation. Opportunity can often be found where you least expect it. Luckily, Analyst became the beneficiary of opportunity through hip-hop.
