Band/artist history
Cinatra The West Coast Messiah Cinatra, born David Lee on November 29th, 1976; is no stranger to hard living. He was born into a poor family and lived in a low income housing project known as Holly Park. As he was growing up, he lived with various relatives through the years. He moved back with his birth mother when he was seven years old. He was a victim of child abuse and a single parent home. David ran away from home at the tender age of eleven. He spent most of his youth in foster care and group homes. David grew up on the Southside of Seattle; the streets had a big impact on his life. He got involved with local gangs and drug selling as a means of protection and making money. David experienced the harsh realities of the streets. He witnessed Death, Prostitution, Racism and Police Brutality. He lost friends to drugs, prison and gang violence. He knew the path that he was on was leading to a dead end. David Lee found an escape from the streets. He began writing poetry and listening to Hip Hop. He consumed his self with Hip Hop and realized that the art form was a way for him to express his self. He wrote his first rap song at the age of eleven while he was at school. The teacher found the lyrics and gave them to the school principle. The principle asked him where he got the song and David replied that he wrote the lyrics. The principle did not believe him. David got expelled from school for writing the song. Even though he was expelled, David saw it as a compliment that the principle thought that a real rapper wrote the song. Through the years David continued working on his writing capabilities and developing his rap style. David was influenced by such Hip Hop giants like Run-DMC, UTFO, Boogie Boys, Fat Boys, LL Cool J, Eazy-E, NWA, MC Breeze, Ice-T, King T, Just Ice, Geto Boys and Kool G. Rap. Hip Hop for David was a way to relate to the urban youth. He did not feel alone anymore; Hip Hop showed him that he was not the only one who lived a harsh life. David is all grownup now and has found his niche. He has built his style and image in the underground Hip Hop Scene. He goes by the moniker Cinatra; adapted from Frank Sinatra. He says the reason why he named himself that; was to set his self a goal in the music industry as a respected and credited lyricist and performer. He has been featured on fifteen underground releases since 1999. He has released one solo album entitled Itz Official. He has traveled and performed all over the United States. He built himself a good underground fan base in the US, Japan, Philippines as well as the Internet. Cinatra credits his underground success to being humble, intelligent and a true stage performer. He is a thought provoking lyricist, who delivers energetic, powerful and meaningful messages in his songs. He sees his self as a street teacher and educator for the younger generation. He set his self a mission to inspire and bring hope to the next generation of poor urban youth. His main goal is to be successful and provide opportunities through his music and record label. His record label is Deep Groove Entertainment, a grass roots company funded with his own money. The first release from Deep Groove Entertainment will be Cinatras second LP, Rhymez Emphasizing Actual Life The AudioBiography Of David (Mr. Cinatra) Lee. Cinatra sums up his latest album as a testimony to the streets and his harsh life. He says that this project means a lot to him and he enjoyed writing this album.
