Pete Santos


Pete Santos is an American MC, singer, and song-writer whose music is a blend of hip-hop, pop, rnb, and soul music. Growing up on the move, living in too many places almost, has influenced his perspective on the world and it translates into his music. He is all about influencing people and spreading positivity in his lyrics: Life music! His music appeals to both the youth and the mature – you can bump it in your car, play it at parties and dance, or just relax and ponder on the music.

Santos was born in New Haven, CT. He is African American as well as Cape Verdean. As an Air Force brat in the U.S. he has lived on the East coast, the West coast, and down south. He’s found homes in different places in Europe as well. 

As seen in his lyrics, he is clean cut and enjoys talking about what is happening around him in the world the way he observes it. Some of his hip hop influences have been ODB, Mobb Deep, Group Home, Hurricane G, Lecrae, Trip Lee, Eminen, Outcast, Young MC, Kanye West, De La Soul, Black Star, Christon Gray, and Busta Rhymes. 

Santos feels that seeing and having lived in so many different environments and cultures has given him a unique context to his American upbringing.
