MC Davo -- born David Sierra Trevino -- is a rapper and social media figure from Monterrey, Mexico. He chose to drop out of high school to pursue music full-time, recording his lightning-fast raps and head-nodding melodies in his bedroom, while also performing in local bars, town squares, and regional festivals.
Davo released his first major work in 2008, uploading his songs to MySpace as free downloads. Amassing a fan base with Haciendo lo Imposible ("Doing the Impossible"), he also participated in underground rap battles to increase street credibility and exposure. His follow-up, 2010's La Dejo a Tu Criterio ("I Leave It to Your Judgment"), was released on Howse Records and produced by frequent collaborators Kodigo 36. His big breakthrough arrived in 2011 with the release of Psicosis ("Psychosis"). He quickly followed with a sequel in 2012, which featured contributions by Meny Mendez. In 2014, Davo signed with Warner Music Mexico and released El Dominio ("Domain"). The album -- which added a touch of reggaeton to his laid-back hip-hop sound -- went gold and was reissued in a deluxe version the following year. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
