Budimir Zdravkovic grew up on the streets of Former Yugoslavia. Even as a young boy, it was apparent that he was talented at having talent. His lyrics and rhymes spread like wildfire as he became notorious at house parties and family birthdays for imitating television pop artists and screaming his lungs out while throwing lego pieces at everyone.
At the tender age of 7 he was already able to h...it moving targets with rotten pears from building roof tops. Budimir`s fresh and innovative style of writing brings a whole new perspective that challenges current notions of rocket science and aerodynamics.
At the age of 9 he arrived in Toronto, Canada and he didn`t have a hair cut until the age of 11 when he quickly became influenced by musicians like Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sheryl Crow. You can still see these influences surface even today when he does stuff.
Budimir quickly came to be known as Budimir Zdravkovic among Canadians and Americans in 2003 when he left to live in NY and study university. Even to this day many remember his name.
A legend, a man, an artist, an activist and most of all a friend to some people. Budimir will continue to inspire thoughts and words in different people and situations.
