2014 now marks the official debut of up-and-coming hip hop artist Casino Chino. His first single “Check” is already gaining attention, while the music video has landed a spot in rotation on mtvU, the MTV-owned cable network that is available to more than 750 College and University campuses across the United States. This is only the beginning for Chino, who has been preparing for his foray into the spotlight for several years already.
Casino Chino, born Anthony Greenidge in Brooklyn, was a “90’s baby.” This may explain his variety of musical influences—from 90’s hip-hop, to old-school soul, all the way up to today’s rap and pop artists. “New York is already a melting pot of musical influences,” explains Chino, “so it was pretty easy for me to fall in love with all types of authentic music—from old to current.” He was singing melodically by age of 2 and, as he got older, his parents had him join different performing arts programs. He started off performing at school events as a youngster and eventually had a stint as a member of a local High School rap group in Long Island, NY. He was always very confident, and it showed when he performed in front of an audience. It didn’t take long before Casino Chino was ready for the next level.
