About Sfera Ebbasta:
Italian rapper Gionata Boschetti (aka Sfera Ebbasta) was born and raised in Cinisello Balsamo, Italy in 1992, a fact that he often referenced in his music. At the young of 13, his father passed away, leaving Sfera responsible for his mother and sister — a responsibility he coped with by writing rhymes. Together with his friend and producer Charlie Charles, they founded their own brand, Billionheadz, through which they released merchandise and music; their first release was a mixtape titled XDVR Reloaded. Cinisello Balsamo — or Ciny as they referred to it — was located just outside of Milan, and in order to further pursue their dreams, both Sfera and Charlie moved to the bigger city, giving them access to a wider variety of media opportunities.
By 2016, Sfera released his debut self-titled album; this time through publication deals with Universal and Def Jam. Sfera Ebbasta featured two collaborative tracks with French rapper SCH, “Balenciaga” and “CartineCartier.” In 2018, his album Rockstar launched him into the most Italian streamed artist ever, with over 700 million streams, 5 Platinum plaques, and collabs like Quavo, Tinie Tempah, Rich The Kid, Lary Over, and Miami Yacine. Additionally, for the first time ever, he had seven tracks on the 200 Global Spotify Chart. Since then he hasn’t stopped, collaborating with massive Italian and international artists.
