Yuri Santos, known by his stage name Aggro Santos, is a Brazilian born British rap vocalist. He first rose to fame in early 2010 when his debut single "Candy" was released, featuring vocals from ex-Pussycat Doll member, Kimberly Wyatt.
Santos was born in São Paulo, Brazil and subsequently moved to Balham, South London. He signed with record label Future Records in 2009 and has released two videos since becoming signed: "Rhythm N Flow" and "Candy."
Before being signed he released a video called "Free Yard" which was released to Channel U in 2008. The song was taken from Santos' first mixtape "Aggro Culture" and was the number one video on Channel U for 18 weeks. Although "Free Yard" did not chart, it is known by most young people across the United Kingdom, especially in London.
"Candy" is Aggro Santos' first official single and is released on 2 May 2010. It features Kimberly Wyatt ex The Pussycat Dolls and is produced by Rob Orton. The song has been added to Radio 1 and MTV Base's playlists.
