Danny Smith was born August 6, 1987, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Growing up in the working class neighborhood of Somerville, he made known early on that he would express himself at will and in his own light. Supplying the daily after-school freestyle circles with instrumentals, Danny came to realize that rapping was both exciting and therapeutic; this cultivated an ambitious desire to make himself known with a medley of abstract content, flawless flow, and urban grit. It was at this time that his musical idols assigned him the emcee name Supraliminal, a word meaning “at or above the threshold of consciousness”.

In November of 2003, Supra was elected to perform at Tufts University’s hip-hop festival alongside Talib Kweli and Akrobatik. That night’s feeling on stage and roar of applause gave Supra a rush he could not ever forget; when he found the drive and comfort in pursuing hip-hop as a career. This was even the subject of his college essay that aided his acceptance into Columbia University, where he graduated in 2009 with a major in economics and psychology.
