Erfan was born on August 3rd, 1983 in Isfahan, Iran. At the tender age of six months, Erfan began his journey across the world. After living in multiple countries, Erfan''s family knew it was time to set their sites on one specific area. After much thought, Erfan and his family began building their life in the USA. Being raised in a family who highly values poetry and literature, Erfan started from a young age to appreciate the arts. As Erfan grew older, he took greater interest in Farsi literature which includes poetry, philosophy, cultural, political, and religion studies. Having experienced a culture shock by moving to America, Erfan was able to channel his conflicting feelings and express them in an artistic way. His lack of stability, caused by constantly moving locations, forced Erfan to deal with attachment differently than most. Despite being raised in the western world, Erfan never lost sight of his Iranian culture. He began writing creative Iranian literature around the age of 14, and from there he expanded his interests to include poetry and music. Erfan conveys many of his life experiences in his poetry and uses his words as a tool to resolve conflicting issues that he is confronted with. At the age of 23, Erfan has added Iranian hip-hop to his list of artistic achievements. The impressive combination of raw talent and perseverance has contributed to Erfan''s eagerness to take the world of Iranian hip-hop to new heights.
