Lee Cartel Bio
Lee Cartel a.k.a Young Glaciers was born June 11, 1984 as Leonardo Martinez in Lowell, Mass. He started rapping at 8 years old. Lee Cartels’ inspiration is fostered by his two older brothers who, at one point, had their own group named the “MF.” They gave the initial momentum to start and Lee Cartel has been hitting it hard ever since. Traces of his early influences include Notorious B.I.G., 2 Pac, Nas and Jay Z, and are heard at the gut of his unique sound.
Sharpshooter a.k.a. Mr. Puerto Rico was born August 14, 1978 as Leopoldo Hiraldo in Bronx, NY. Like Lee Cartel, he started rapping early at the age of 14 and hasn't looked back. His early influences include the Latino Hip Hop artist Big Pun, the Hip Hop/Jazz style of Guru (Ganstarr), the accessible pop style of LL Cool J, and the political and socially conscious raps of KRS- ONE. These influences helped to provide the founding base of his own independent voice.
