Luna Florentino is on a crazy wave right now. Two weeks ago, Luna was featured on veteran hip hop personality DJ Switch’s latest single, #OnTheWay alongside Dee XCLSV and Maraza. Luna is not only on the hook, but also produced the beat under his production alias, The Urban Lunatic. #OnTheWay has been earning rave reviews on mainstream social media and it’s starting to gain momentum on the airwaves.
Yesterday, Luna’s incredible recent work was rewarded with a 4-page feature in the latest copy of Africa’s leading hip hop magazine, Hype Magazine. He then capped off a memorable day (and month) by releasing the cover art and release date for his eagerly anticipated mixtape, Florentino Mariachi which drops on September 4th.
