The journey of one Latino hip-hop artist started in Washington, D.C., and has gone through several American cities as well as Cali, Colombia.
And now, the artist, Steve “Ceromundo” Echeverry, calls Laurel his home turf. He even serves on the Laurel Arts Council.
“I just wanted to get away from my crazy life in Hyattsville,” he said, with a laugh.
In fact, his history with Laurel goes back to 2006 when he landed a job with a Laurel Chevy Chase Bank branch.
He now works as a graphic designer, a skill that grew from his early years as a graffiti artist.
But it is in music that he has a growing reputation.
