Emmanuel Reys a.k.a El Mayor Clasico was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1990.
Orphan of dad, he was always very close to his mother and siblings. To help his family, he began working early, with only 14 years old, in a small tailoring factory.
His relationship with the biz started with the help of a friend, who saw one of Emmanuel’s performance and realized his potential. With the encouragement of this friend, Emmanuel started writing his songs and soon he was performing as backing vocal for other artists.
With more confidence, the urban artist started to make more connections in the industry and made his first partnership with El Kable My Studio. With them, he produced his two first singles - ‘Los Gucci’ and ‘Clasico’.
After these two singles, El Mayor also released ‘Menor Ratatá’, ‘Choki Choki’ and ‘You soy jevito’. And in 2012 he got the attention of the label records Gran Velero, with whom he has a contract until today.
Supporter of the Dembow style, El Mayor Clasico is becoming more and more important in the urban music scenario. He has partnered up with artists like Jowell & Randy, Farruko and Arcangel; he was recognized as “best new artist” in the Premios Latinos 2013 in New York City, and recently toured through Central America.
El Mayor Clasico is just in the beginning of a very successful career.
