Don’t Miss R-Mean’s Performance at AAMS’s 39th Anniversary Gala!

Get ready for an unforgettable performance by R-Mean at AAMS’s 39th Anniversary Gala Celebration!

R-Mean is more than just a rapper; he’s a voice for a nation that has endured one of the darkest chapters in history. With the intensity of a people who fought for every breath, he raps for Armenia, his homeland. Growing up in Los Angeles, R-Mean found solace in hip-hop, obsessing over artists like Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, and Wu-Tang Clan. However, the idea of becoming a rapper seemed improbable, as there had never been an Armenian rapper before.

Despite the odds, R-Mean pursued his passion for hip-hop, honing his skills and crafting rhymes that spoke to his experiences and heritage. He garnered attention in the Armenian community with his debut project, “Broken Water,” and continued to make waves with his thought-provoking lyrics and socially conscious themes.

In addition to his musical endeavors, R-Mean is a pharmacist by profession, dedicated to helping patients and making a difference in their lives. His commitment to his roots is evident in his music, where he seamlessly integrates elements of Armenian culture and history. Through projects like “Open Wounds X,” he raises awareness of the Armenian Genocide and honors the memory of the 1.5 million lives lost. His activism extends beyond music, as he spearheaded the “Our Wounds Are Still Open” movement, selling merchandise to support the cause.

Collaborating with industry heavyweights like Cypress Hill’s B-Real and legendary producer Scott Storch, R-Mean has solidified his place in the hip-hop scene. His recent album, “MEAN,” showcases his growth as an artist, with tracks like “Candle of the Devil” featuring a powerful cameo from Nas.

Despite his success, R-Mean remains grounded, driven by a desire to inspire the next generation. His message is clear: never give up on your dreams, no matter the obstacles. Through his music, R-Mean continues to shine a light on Armenia’s rich culture and resilient spirit, leaving an indelible mark on the world of hip-hop and beyond.
