Westerly, Rhode Island, 22nd July 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, We recently sat down with viral artist, rap sensation, and mental health advocate Mass of Man to learn more about his journey into the spotlight and how his passion came to be his career.
Nico DeGiacomo was born and raised in Westerly, Rhode Island. He is still based there and fondly calls it his home, but today many know him as inspirational rapper Mass of Man. So how did it all come to be?
It’s really a journey that begins in a highschool lunchroom. Mass of Man shared that every day, he would watch and listen to his classmates rap battle each other- and eventually began to participate himself. That’s when he caught an infectious love for rhyming, and what started as a daily past-time in school quickly came home with him and became a passion for songwriting. He worked for years honing his skills and growing as an artist purely because he loved to do it- a practice he encourages in anyone with a passion for the art.
DeGiacomo adopted the moniker Mass of Man due to his actual impressive stature- standing a towering 6’6” tall. In 2015, he took his passion to the next level as he began recording and releasing music online. He first started by building a large and tight-knit fan base on Facebook, and then ventured into Youtube where he now has countless hit singles and viral videos. His first single to go viral was “Fallen Angel” featuring Mack Harrison in 2018. The single is a dialogue between the artist and his depression- personified by Mack Harrison- and in addition to being an incredible track sonically, it amassed even more core fans due to its mental health content and relatability.
Mass of Man emphasized his passion surrounding mental health advocacy, with his songwriting working as a tool to touch on all aspects of it and helping himself and others to overcome the hurdles that accompany those struggles. Living with Bipolar Disorder Type 1, OCD, and Anxiety, DeGiacomo is a pillar of strength and resilience with a message of hope for anyone listening-and one of the most kind and positive people you could ever meet, trust us. He has no plans on slowing down his career anytime soon, and will continue to leave a legacy with each project he releases.
