Biography[edit]

Beginnings[edit]

Born in and grew up in Cologno Monzese, the nickname Grido (Scream) apparently has been given him by his brother Alessandro, aka J-Ax, because as a child always cried. His first appearance is a collaboration with his brother J-Ax in the song Cavaliere senza re of 1996. The second appearance is in the song Tutti Per Uno of Dj Enzo in 1997, when he was still part of Rima nel Cuore along with Strano, now lead singer of Gemelli Diversi.

Gemelli Diversi[edit]

Then (with Strano) joined the group La Cricca, formed by Thema and THG, thereby forming the group of Gemelli Diversi, which is the youngest member. With GDV (which is still a member) has recorded seven compact discs from the first of 1998, which bears the name of the band. Grido has also participated with Articolo 31 in different songs including Il mio consiglio, Buon sangue non mente, Due su due and Cavalieri senza Re. In 2006, in the song "Idee Stupide", Fabri Fibra expressed bad appreciation for the Gemelli Diversi and Grido in particular. He lit a dispute in perfect American style: Grido responded with a video released online in which the opponent makes a parody called "Standing Ovation", and Fabri Fibra responded at '"MTV Day" 2006 in Bologna. The Gemelli Diversi, in turn, responded in the song "B-boy band" contained in the album Boom!.
