The meaning of «sfera ebbasta»

Gionata Boschetti[1] (Italian pronunciation: [ˈdʒɔːnata boˈsketti]; born 7 December 1992), better known by the pseudonym Sfera Ebbasta (pronounced [ˈsfɛːra ebˈbasta]), is an Italian rapper.

Sfera Ebbasta rose to prominence after the release of the XDVR album, recorded with the collaboration of the record producer Charlie Charles, which achieved commercial success in Italy. This success was replicated with releases Sfera Ebbasta (2016), Rockstar (2018), and its re-issue Popstar Edition (2018), Famoso (2020) [2]

Sfera was born in the Milanese town of Sesto San Giovanni, but grew up in the neighbouring town of Cinisello Balsamo.[3] His parents separated two years after his birth, and his father died when he was only 13. He dropped out of school at the age of 14.

The rapper began his musical activity by uploading videos on YouTube between 2010 and 2012 without any success.[4] In this period he started getting into contact with producer Charlie Charles, met while trying to illegally enter in a Hip Hop TV concert in Milan.[5] Thus, they formed the collective Billion Headz Money Gang, better known by the acronym BHMG. On 15 September 2013, he published Emergenza Mixtape Vol. 1.

Since November 2014, he has produced several pieces in collaboration with Charlie Charles [6] and published them on YouTube with their videos. After the release of the song Panette he began to be contacted by some record labels.[7]

On 11 June 2015 he made his debut with the first studio album XDVR (standing for "per davvero", "for real" in English), made up by some of the singles published in the previous months, as well as other unpublished ones. Initially released as a free download,[8] the album was reissued in a reloaded version on 23 November through Roccia Music, an independent record label of Marracash and Shablo, and distributed in the national sales circuits; in addition to the songs already present in the original, the tracklist included the unreleased XDVRMX (with Marracash and Luchè), Ciny (referring to his hometown Cinisello, of which video clip was also shot)[9] and Trap Kings. The album received a good success in the underground musical scene and greatly increased the popularity of trap music in Italy, also receiving excellent feedback from the specialized critics;[10] however it was also the subject of numerous criticisms as various songs spoke of life in suburban neighborhoods (mainly inspired by the street reality of his city, Cinisello Balsamo),[11] including criminal activities and consumption of drugs such as codeine and marijuana.[12]

On 20 January 2016 the video of the unreleased track Blunt & Sprite was published on YouTube,[13] while during the same year Sfera Ebbasta featured in a track of the album Anarchie by the French rapper SCH, positively impressed by listening to the rapper's pieces during a stay in Italy: he also made the track Cartine Cartier, produced by Charlie Charles and DJ Kore, extracted as a promotional single of the album.[14]
