Where did Bad Bunny grow up?
From his humble beginning in Almirante Sur, Puerto Rico, the rapper-singer has taken the reggeaton world by storm.
“I’ve always been very proud of where I come from,” the La Noche De Anoche artist told Billboard in 2018. “I love my island. It means pride, it means love. It means a lot of things to me. Being a Puerto Rican, it means everything. It’s what I am.”
Bunny and his brothers grew up only 45 minutes away from San Juan’s metro area.
He explained to the New York Times that going into the city was a major event growing up that would only happen a handful of times a year.
“As a child,” he told the outlet, “for better or worse, I always lived in my bubble. Now, I could say — and people do say — it’s a form of privilege. But it’s always been my way of being. Me, in my house and in my bubble, imagining a better, more magical world.”
As a child he was shy and described himself to Rolling Stone as being a wallflower, though he developed a reputation at school for coming up with creative raps.
He was raised going to a Catholic church and knew from a young age he wanted to be a singer, so would sing in the choir.
His stage name “Bad Bunny” was awarded to him because of a childhood picture that circulated the internet in which he’s dressed as a rabbit.
Sporting a not-so-happy face in the picture, he created a Twitter account under the handle Bad Bunny, using the picture as his display pic.
When Bunny gained more notoriety the name stuck.
