With #PowerhouseLA quickly approaching on May 12th, it’s only right we visit one of our favorites on the lineup, De La Ghetto, to find out how he got his name!
Thanks to an exclusive interview on telemundo.com, we found out the name is actually inspired by an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
He states, “It was an episode that Will had to go to school and like you know, it was like job day. He had to bring somebody. So he brought Geoffry, his butler. And he dressed him up like a street poet called Rafael De La Ghetto. So, my name is Rafael, it was more of like a joke in school. Like one day we were just having fun or whatever in our spare time and… it’s like a nickname. When I’m Rafael, I’m just Rafael. But when I’m De La Ghetto, when I’m on stage, it’s like action! I just kill the stage.”
