YO FABIIO WHAT UP
Xavier Molina De la Paz known artistically as “Yo Fabiio What Up” was born on February 16, 1990 in the Hato Rey community of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The singer/songwriter and music producer labels himself as a trapper (Trap rapper), influenced by American hip-hop music icons Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and Snoop Dog, among others. Fabiio’s music merges Rap and Trap to his unique songwriting and singing in Spanish; creating a fresh and distinct sound. An avid skateboarder since age 10, and inspired by his favorite skater Andrew Reynolds, Fabiio spent countless hours at his nearby park daily sharpening his skills and befriending others who like him enjoyed the recreational sport. With an uncanny drive to excel, Fabiio became and currently is one of the top skateboarders in the island.
Fabiio’s musical career began organically, while working at a barbershop, his colleagues recognized in him a unique knack for music and at age 24 he delved into studying sound engineering and music production. He worked with many aspiring artists in the recording studio until he began his own artistic journey at age 27, songwriting and recording his own songs. “The Trap I create is different, classy, antidepressant, and happy…” says Fabiio. His “feel good now” approach to the creation of his sound is what motivates him to produce authentic music filled with nothing but genuine eccentricity. As he continues to remain true to his identity in the world of trap music, Fabiio prides himself in being recognized as one of the few skateboarding artists in the Latin scene with a passion for making creative music while offering distinct take on eclectic fashion.

With positive feedback and excitement from his fans, he then released his second single titled “George Clooney,” taking inspiration from the elegance of Hollywood, Fabiio raps and blends his trap music style in this song; a homage to the iconic actor George Clooney.
