Victor Sanabria was born in Bronx, New York on March 8th. He was raised in era from which B-Boying and the foundation of Hip-Hop’s cultural movement were in culmination. A young and inspired Victor felt drawn to hip-hop’s early greats. New York is known as the mecca of rap music, and from it a multitude of talents arose such as Biggie, Nas, 2Pac, Jay-Z, and Big Pun. Artist who he came to respect and influenced him in many ways, but it’s his love for all music that sets him apart from other hip hop artist. While growing up he was also exposed to Rock music, Classic R&B and Classic Pop.
The transformation from Victor Sanabria to Co.C occurred sometime circa 1999 just before the turn of the millennium when rap was at it’s strongest in the music industry. The name “Co. C” was mainly inspired by a 1993 film entitled A Bronx Tale. The protagonist in the film is named Calogero, whom everyone else called “C.” Victor shortened Calogero to Co. C. However, the name Co. C has a double meaning. Co.C inevitably experienced what sometimes accompanies the street lifestyle. While his passion was music, he realized hustling with words was not going to pay the bills. Therefore he soon started selling narcotics, i.e. cocaine (Co-C). Soon came to the realization that continuous engagement in criminal activity often leads to dangerous situations such as jail time or death. So he changed his life for the better and concentrated more on his music.
Exposing himself to the gritty and grimy streets of the Bronx, and it was precisely this that provided a sharp edge to his songs and personal character. Smooth lyrical content and life experiences manifested in his song writing. His unique style and smooth delivery made him a force to be reckoned with. He soon gained a reputation as a strong performer that would give any MC a run for their money. Right now his primary focus is on writing and creating Hip-Hop / Trap-N-B music, thus sacrificing everything else in life to pursue a career in the music industry as a reinvented individual.
