Born in the heart of Hollywood, rapper and actor Nazo Bravo was raised to value education and his strong Armenian heritage, not necessarily steered by family toward a pursuit of fame. Nevertheless, as a youth Nazo found himself drawn toward tales of urban struggle and was influenced by rappers like Tupac Shakur and Big Pun. The culture of Hip Hop and the awareness of its impact on society became part of Nazo's fabric as an Armenian-American. Inspired by contemporary Serj Tankian, Nazo developed his own label Mighty Hye Records with General Manager Greg Cross (whose past clients include MC Ren, Above The Law, and Dana Dane) to bring attention to often overlooked great artistry.
In 2012, Nazo gained press by paying homage to the 50th Anniversary of James Bond during the release of the film Skyfall with an original composition and video montage titled James Bond, getting the official blessing of Columbia Pictures. In 2013, he entered the Power 106 "Who's Next" competition and ended up #8 out of 1,678 artists. Afterwards, Nazo received soundtrack placements on the documentary Tattoo Nation (starring Danny Trejo, Ed Hardy) alongside Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm) and B-Real (Cypress Hill), as well as the Jack Topalian / Eric Roberts film Betrayal. Recently Nazo released his mixtape #Focusss featuring West Coast veteran Kurupt, rising star Problem, and DJ Carisma of Power 106 as the host, while his single Focus is receiving national airplay and has been featured on AllHipHop.com. Nazo is currently completing his debut album Mighty Hye with seasoned, veteran producer Corey “OZ” Simon (TI, Macy Gray).
Besides his talent as a recording artist, Nazo is also CEO of his label Mighty Hye Records and an actor who has appeared on MTV, BET, the hit TNT series Southland, the film 4 Minutes (produced by Ray Liotta of Goodfellas), and the international TV series Dilemma.
