Italian rapper Emis Killa was born Emiliano Giambelli in the city of Vimercate in November 1989. The son of keyboardist Sergio Giambelli, Emis released a number of successful singles and mixtapes before unleashing his studio debut, 2012's L'Erba Cattiva. It reached number ten on the charts, but its follow-up, Mercurio, became even more successful. The album went all the way to number one upon release in October 2013, then spent all of 2014 and early 2015 charting in Italy. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
