Rafael Rodriguez, also known as the 5reen3y3z (meaning “green eyes”), a Puerto Rican who lives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was born on November 12, 1987.
Rafael discovered his love for music while still in high school, in 2003, when he began rapping about street life, money, and clothes, among other topics.
Rafael’s enthusiasm for music has allowed him to surpass a number of challenges from his early life, earning him over 35,000 streams on Spotify in a little over a month for his most recent tune, “Change.”
He began attending to recording studios with a friend when he was 16 years old to see individuals working in the booth. Within a few months, they purchased a G5 Mac and set up their own home studio, where they began recording and uploading their work to MySpace.
The turning point in his life occurred in 2010, after he had been detained for a period of one year.
2011 was a new year, and with it came a new way of life for him, as he began working in a slaughterhouse in Souderton, Pennsylvania, named JBS. He worked for that company for around seven years, rising up the ranks. Within two years, he was promoted to the position of supervisor, and within another two years, he was promoted to the position of superintendent, in charge of the entire floor. He had nine supervisors under his belt at the time. In that company, I made six figures.
During the month of October 2020, he was in charge of the deboning department at a chicken facility, and when Covid 19 struck, he had the opportunity to put into practise all he had learned over the previous years. After years of experience in huge corporations, he was able to apply his knowledge and skills to the internet industry.
His life has been completely transformed as a result of monetizing social media and promoting his brand. He began promoting himself as a social media influencer in November of the following year. He got his start on TikTok by going live as a Vibe host, which is what he dubbed himself because he provided the vibes to the platform. As his TikTok and Instagram followings expanded, he gained an understanding of sites such as clubhouse and the fan base application.
These are audio room applications that remind him of networking on the street, but in the comfort of his own house. Meeting people from all around the world was extremely beneficial to him and assisted him in expanding his platforms. In time, he built up a large following of fans and supporters and was ready to begin producing music and expanding his brand.
Rodriguez, often known as Green Eyes, is a living example of how you can do anything you set your heart to. It is never too late or difficult to make a difference. It doesn’t matter how bad your history has been, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve everything you set your mind to.
