Dātin (Day-tin) is the performance alias of Eddie Berrios, a Florida-based Christian hip hop artist with a distinctive, gritty vocal tone.
Born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, he cut his teeth as a champion battle rapper in his teens, with wins including BET's 106 & Park Freestyle Friday & Monday Night Fight Klub earning him a fan base and eventually the attention of record labels. After some time off from music during which he committed to a Christian path both personally and professionally, he signed with God Over Money
records in 2014. The label released his much-anticipated debut LP, The Roar, in early 2016. Its many featured guests included Christian rappers Bizzle
and Dre Murray
, and it soon landed in the Top 20 of the Billboard Christian and rap charts, as well as on the Independent Albums and Heatseekers Albums charts. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
