His casual attitude at that moment of pinnacle achievement was hard-earned.Born Carlos I Talavera Alvarez on July 22,1982
-when his mother was just 17-and raised without the benefit of a father,he grew up in a relatively bucolic suburban Nicaraguan setting,but that soured after his family relocated to Los Angeles,CA.
Badly bullied and surrounded by gangs throughout his teenage years.The result was an accelerated,knuckle-splitting maturation that found an appropriately untamed outlet in rapping.The Flow was on his way.Despite the fact that his 1996 debut "Los Tiradores vol.1" went virtually unnoticed,within two years,he attained-via "Kings of Flow" the sensational international succes that made him a household name."Kings of Flow"
You have to be a glass half-full kind of guy to write lyrics like "Seguire Esperando" and "Lo que seria and what of time" while collecting unemployment. It takes a different level of optimism to write those songs when your car has been repo'd and you're dodging eviction notices.
But such is World/Reggea/Latin/Urban Songwriter/Kings of Flow lead singer Carlos (The Flow) Talavera's in the power of "Flow." Does it work? Consider this: "Libertad," which The Flow wrote amid personal crisis,is now the title track of his award-winning recording debut as part of "Kings of Flow"
"The premise behind everything i do is NOT only to make people dance,but to empower and encourage,"says The Flow. "There's a lot of job loss and people losing their homes and hope,and dreams right now. It's important to have a message of empowerment out there . Specially within my LATIN community out there: the message that people must speak positively that they create their world by what they say"
