He is strong vocaly in his music and the movement behind it. THE TRAFIKANTEZ ERA His grind started in Cali, Colombia just like a coffee bean waiting to get exported for the US. Influenced by Mobb Deep, Wu Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, Outkast, and numerous others he developed a butchered like Spanglish flow giving him the name "Carnicero-007." In 1997 He smuggled his raw style back to the states where he connected with Tragiko, a Colombian MC from Chicago and began the group "Trafikantez”. They successfully released an independent album “De Calidad Por Cantidad”, and a video which was directed by Niche Studios from the Big Pun Documentarys. They also budgeted and independently toured not to mention they created an extensive network.
The group later disbanded due to creative differences. There music still gets radio play and fans request that the band reunites again SACRIFICIO His debut album “Sacrificio” was released under Ceromundo Music and is availble in stores and online (itunes). The album is Hip Hop Latino in its purest form with creative controversial Spanglish lyrics that take you on a ride from the 1st track to the last. Its subliminal message translates through a collection of party songs, battle lyrics, street anthems, and story tales.
One of the songs “Nadie Sabe Nada” debuted in the top 10 Hip Hop en Espanol charts on Batanga.com. The single “Ponete Pilas” had a campaign which inspired Latinos to wake up and smell the café. The album includes production from Crooks Brothers, Tony Vinyl, Golden Chyld, Stretch and guest spots from artists like Calle Cardona, 4Esquinas, Dshon, amongst others. The album continues to move units in through out the states (MD, DC, VA, NY, FL, TX, CA, MA) and has even reached fans from Colombia all the way to Mexico City, Europe and Japan.

Cero has collaborated with Mellow Man Ace (The Godfather of Latin Rap) and recorded “Recognize” released under Latin Thug / Koch records.
