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, so it was pretty easy for me to fall in love with all types of authentic music—from old to current.” -Chino
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. - ThisIs50.com
