Biography

Gracias (Deogracias Masomi, May 6th, 1987), hailing from the Democratic Republic of Congo, (formerly Zaire (the place where Muhammad Ali knocked Foreman out.)) Kinshasa. At the age of four, around 1992, D. Masomi moved up north to Helsinki, Finland, alongside his mother to join his father and spark up hope for a better life. At the time DRC was getting torned down by the civil war and riots. In other words Gracias and his family became refugees. Finally the whole family obtained a permanent residence permit and settled in the northeast of Helsinki, Malmi. Later on Bmac (Pukinmäki).

Gracias made his debut in 2007 (as Luminate) with the mixtape “Listenin’ Comprehension”. Luminate faded himself away for a couple of years mainly because the bullshit politics in music and cheap beer. Uninspired by the state of hiphop, Luminate was quietly laid to rest. Metaphorically speaking.

Gracias fell back and nourished his ears and soul with that vintage, golden-era, gritty hiphop sound. He then reinvented himself after realizing how much passion he had for rap music and the local fanbase, consisting of little kids who were constantly demanding for new material. That was bugging the shit out of his nerves.
