The independent artist recorded his first track almost a year and a half ago and although his genre is generally hip-hop/r&b, Ajay Luciano revealed he is still working on getting his sound together.
He explained, “I would say my sound is very diverse, I got an open ear for a lot of music but I grew up younger listening to a lot of R&B & Soul music other than Lil Wayne & 50 Cent.”

After suffering a collapsed lung, the independent artist was gaining the strength and was on his way to recovery. However, it was a very difficult time for the rapper physically and mentally.
During that time Ajay Luciano also discovered that he had a daughter. Looking back he always questions what would have happened if he had passed. The independent artist is thankful that he survived and was able to finally meet his daughter.
“Thinking of that situation makes me think, I can’t go back to that point because I use to think like I should of died cause I couldn’t take the pain of recovering.” He explained, “But then if I would’ve died I would’ve never knew I had a daughter so she just a major motivation for me to let me know that I got things I got to do out here & take care of and I’m going to handle them”
The up and coming artist is hungry but humble! He revealed that he’s willing to learn and is always looking for new ways to improve as an artist. Ajay Luciano hopes to inspire others, He would like to let everyone know that you can achieve your dreams if you work hard and put in the time.
