Deorro is the latest artist to take the “Growing Up Latino” hot seat, where he sat down to talk about his Mexican culture and inspiring other Latinos.
Talking all things street food, the Los Angeles-based DJ didn’t shy away from gushing over burritos and L.A. hot dogs. Plus, his favorite telenovela crush growing up was Luz Clarita and his Latin role models included Mexican singer Pedro Fernandez and his father.
“I never realized that we were struggling and I think that means my parents did an amazing job,” Deorro recalls of his childhood. “I was really young when we were getting kicked out of the house and I didn’t realize how serious the situation was.”
