They said that Dean Martin was the “King of Cool,” and they were probably right. It takes a certain type of person to become the center of attention the way he did. It’s the kind of person that Orlando, FL raised, Los Angeles based rapper Reason idolizes.
“Old Hollywood” seemed like light-years away for Reason, growing up and honing his craft in a place that’s better known for Mickey Mouse than music. But that was never a deterrent for the young talent, who eventually found himself rapping for Diddy on MTV’s “Making The Band 2″. After appearing on video game soundtracks, performing all across the world, and releasing critically-acclaimed mixtapes, Reason finally decided to further emulate his idol by moving to Los Angeles.
Now at age 26, Reason has matured into a natural entertainer and showman, with Rat Pack-like charisma and style. He’s on the brink of releasing his debut EP “The Cool Graduate” and the music video for his single “Life of a Star,” a track that certifies him as a Hip-Hop crooner extraordinaire.
The budding rapper/screenwriter plans on taking the entertainment industry by storm, with great music, television, and film projects in the works. Much like his idol, Reason plans to do everything with a sense of coolness, class, and sophistication. The kind of qualities that made Dean Martin a legend. Something that Reason hopes to one day become.
