Italy’s first hip-hop star brings unique sound to U.S.
Jovanotti may be the biggest name in Italian music that you've never heard of - until now.
The star, whose real name is Lorenzo Cherubini, is bringing his unique blend of orchestral pop and hip-hop to the United States for the first time in his 25-year career. His newest work, "Italia 1988-2012," is his first official U.S. album release.
The album represents a longtime love affair with New York. He moved there recently, and his newest track is called “New York for Life."
