Entics is an Italian rapper whose music combines hip-hop, reggae, dancehall, and pop. Born in 1985, he spent his childhood in the western suburbs of Milan, where he took piano lessons and immersed himself in the local hip-hop scene as a writer. Entics launched his music career by joining Voodoo Smokers, a Milanese hip-hop crew, and began releasing his own mixtapes in 2007. Four years later, he signed with Sony Music and released Soundboy, a popular debut album that reached the Top Five in Italy. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
