What to Expect
The audience can expect to see a solo artist rock the stage with the lyricism and passion one might expect from Kendrick Lamar. He is good with interacting with the crowd and very comfortable on stage. He does not perform with an entourage or hype man which makes his shows very intimate. The songs he performs range from complex lyrics to hype songs that get the crowd pumped. Imagine being in the audience and seeing a young Nas rap for the first time, that is what it's like to be in the crowd watching Corey Diamond perform.
Corey Diamond aka “CocoFuego” grew up in the hood on the Eastside of Detroit, MI. He first discovered his talent for writing rap lyrics at the age of 11 and used to rap with his best friend “Lil Stunt.”After years of trying to fit in with his peers (smoking weed, claiming a local gang, and “smooth talking” the ladies), he managed to escape the street life and obtained his GED at 18. He started taking college courses at Washtenaw Community College while working full time and rapping on the side – slowing building his identity as a sharp MC. Eight years later, after two mixtapes and three college degrees (Associates, BA, MS) – the latter two degrees in Psychology from the University of Michigan – he is finally ready to inspire other kids to escape the trap and reach their full potential.
His most recent mixtape “For Better or Worse Vol. 2” released on March 16th, 2017, features all original songs and chronicles his experiences growing up in Detroit. It is currently available to purchase on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play.
Additional Booking Notes
All he needs to perform is a microphone and a decent sound system to play an MP3 track list. No lighting or special effects necessary. A sound engineer or DJ to start / stop music would be preferable but if there is none, he can pre-arrange his set list to accommodate.
