Raymond "Conan" Ramirez was born and raised in the Bronx.
Stemming from a musical family, with his father "Shampoo" being the road manager for rapper Main One the Ghetto Child and his Mother being "Spanish Fly", a former MC, Conan was in a position at an early age to have an entertainment career. The rapper was exposed early on to music professionals and entertainers such as Island Def Jam executive Yvette Davila, and rappers Fat Joe, N.O.R.E., the late Big Pun, and many more. Conan soon teamed up with fellow rapper Young Cor to form the rap group Illest Spitters, and released The Youngest in Charge mixtape, hosted by Kid Capri. Conan’s first solo project was the mixtape The New Beginning, which was dubbed “a 3-D experience that will give new and old fans a chance to hear some of the innovative material Conan is creating.” A burgeoning businessman also emerged as Conan worked with and learned from his father’s company, YNVS Marketing, Promotion, and Management. Conan is currently promoting his second studio album as a solo artist, #2ndStep2Success, and has been featured on ThisIs50, VladTV, and other media outlets in support of the project. The 14-track album features appearances by General DV, Brookelynne, Louie Ville, Pressure, City Boy Dee, Berri Life, and Torch. On the project, Conan explains how to achieve greatness in the music industry, and illustrates his own progression.
