Tirone José González Orama (March 11, 1988 – January 20, 2015), known by his stage name Canserbero,[4][5] was a Venezuelan hip hop singer and songwriter from Caracas.[6] He was one of the most significant interpreters of non-commercial rap in his country and Latin America.[7] Since he was young he showed interest in music, mainly influenced by reggaeton but after the murder of his half brother, his musical references changed to more critical genres such as hip hop and hard rock, appreciable in songs like "Es épico".[8]

Canserbero, throughout his career, came to release two studio albums as a soloist, Vida (2010) and Muerte (2012) respectively,[9] and had several notorious songs such as "Pensando en ti", "C'est la mort", "Maquiavélico", among others.[8] He also participated as a vocalist in several songs of artists from Latin America and Spain as Mala Rodríguez, with whom he recorded a song entitled "Ella" (2013).[10] At the end of January 2015, Canserbero was found dead after having fallen from the apartment where he was resident. There are several hypotheses about his death.[5][6]


At the age of eleven, he began performing rap performances under the stage name of Canserbero,[7][11][12] a jargon of Latinism cerbero dog (in Latin, canis cerberus) meaning "guardian",[11] an allusion to Cerberus of Greek mythology.[13]

Personal life[edit]

Born on March 11, 1988 in the General Hospital of Lídice Dr. Jesús Yerena of the city of Caracas, as Tirone José González Orama. Son of José Rafael González Ollarves and Leticia Orama.[11] Later, his parents moved with him to Maracay. In 1997, his mother died and was left under the care of his father.[7]


Canserbero died in an apparent murder–suicide on January 20, 2015, in Maracay. While suffering from depression (although family members said that he was not suffering from any mental illness), he was asked by Carlos Molnar, bassist for Zion TPL, to stay with him.[14]

Allegedly Canserbero stabbed Molnar to death and then jumped to his own death from the tenth floor of the building.[15] However, several members of his family have expressed several doubts regarding the police investigation.[16]
