Gera MX, whose real name is Gerardo Daniel Torres, was just performing in small venues not too long ago. However, the Mexican rapper started performing in major festivals such as the Vive Latino in 2020 and Tecate Pal Norte in 2021. This 2022, Gera MX headlines his first U.S. National Tour starting in May.
His single “Botella Tras Botella,” in collaboration with Christian Nodel, became a phenomenal hit. The song became viral on the social media app Tik Tok when Nodal gave a preview during his Twitch stream. The song debuted at number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on the Hot Latin Songs charts in May 2021.
Hailing from Monterrey, Gera MX mentioned that his upbringing has greatly influenced his career as Mexico’s most in-demand rapper. “I come from a dangerous neighborhood that made it easy for my lyrics,” he said during an interview with Billboard. “I had so many things to share. Nothing was invented. I simply penned my feelings on paper.” Gera MX added that he started writing songs at the tender age of 13 and never stopped.
Eventually, as an artist, he found his sound and started to work on his vision of being a new and versatile rapper. “My ideology was to create phrases people want to tattoo on themselves. My style had to be unique and sound like all the artists who influenced me.”
