Rapper, Song Writer

Background

Rapper and Song Writer Primo Spirazzi was born Glenn Lamur in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on March 5, 1991. He was exposed to poverty at an early age. He lived with his grandmother and uncle. Most of his day were spent in darkness with no electricity because of the region of Haiti he was living in. Food and water were also very scarce; temperatures would reach over 100 degrees every single day. The way of living in Haiti was finding a way to survive without robbing or killing. To keep his mind off of the negativity, Primo enrolled in the New American School at age 7. He quickly found his stride in school because he was a part of the Honor Roll. He was proud of his achievement and said:

“When I found out I made the Honor Roll, I was elated because I was the only person in my family at the time going to school. The New American School brought discipline in my life because every homework I missed I was whipped by the teachers. The lesson taught me never to dismiss any work offered to me. I was establishing some building blacks in my life.”

At age 9 I moved to Fitchburg, MA to live with my parents and start a new life. Moving to the United States brought new motivation in his life. His goal was to graduate High School and College.
