Robert Garcia, stage name Mr. Criminal, is an American recording artist (rapper) from Southern California, owner of Crime Family Entertainment Music Group. In addition to being a rapper he is a songwriter, producer, videographer, and the creator and owner of gdupclothing
Garcia was born on December 4, 1982 and is of Latin Descent. He is the youngest of four children raised in a household maintained by a single mother whom, he states, endured and sacrificed a lot for him and his siblings. He credits his mother for being the motivational force in his rise to prominence in the music industry. Garcia engaged in destructive behavior during his youth around the age of 13, which resulted in his becoming a ward of the state and being incarcerated on several occasions. He was released in 1999 and began his music career a few years later as a way to cope and recover from his upbringing and reach out to the Hispanic youth who face similar struggles. Since becoming an artist, Garcia has since toured and performed both nationally and internationally.
Creating music with strong narratives that reflect his life struggles, Mr. Criminal earned his first break when he met rapper Mr. Capone-E in 2001 at a low-rider car show. The two artists recorded an album called "Criminal Mentality", released on Capone-E's Thump Records Music Group that gained widespread international popularity in 2003.
Since then Mr. Criminal has been working with notable recording artists and producers including Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Nate Dogg, Fingazz, Fat Joe of Terror Squad, Twista, Lil Flip, Glasses Malone, Suga Free, Mr. Capone-E, Spider Loc of G-Unit, Kokane, Roscoe, Triple C, Lil Cuete, DTTX, Shade Sheist and others.
In 2006, the release of Mr. Criminal's most anticipated album, Stay On The Streets, with the hit single "We Ride", featuring Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, gained national radio success throughout the United States, providing the opportunity for Mr. Criminal to tour with Hip-Hop group G-Unit.
However, his fame had been shortly sidetracked after multiple charges with the law, most notably in 2008 when state troopers searched his vehicle in Arizona and was charged with possession of illegal firearms and marijuana.
After being released from confinement, Mr. Criminal worked hard to get his life back on track by continuing to create and write music about his experiences with crime and the law. On Billboard Music, Mr. Criminal's track, "Death Before Dishonor" was charted #31 in the Heatseekers Album category and #64 in the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums category; Rise 2 Power was charted #37 in the Heatseekers Album category and #65 in the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums category and Criminal Mentality 2 was charted #47 on the Heatseekers Album category. As of 2017, Mr. Criminal 34 albums available for purchase. In 2017 he left Hi Power Entertainment and formed his own record label named Crime Family Entertainment. However, later in the year he released his last album on Hi Power Entertainment, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.
Garcia has also ventured into acting. He will appear in a major production, Bright, starring Will Smith. The film is set to premiere on Netflix in December 2017. In 2016, he produced and directed a film of his own called 'The Final Ride'. He is also slated to appear in the film El Chicano, described as an "hispanic superhero film" starring George Lopez. He recently announced via his Instagram that he was cast in an unnamed show that will premiere on Fox.
Garcia is married and currently resides in Southern California. He and his wife have two sons and a daughter. His oldest son works alongside him as a videographer and photographer and sometimes shoots his father's music videos under the name Street Visuals. Robert Garcia a.k.a. Mr. Criminal is a strong proponent and consumer of marijuana, and has recently ventured into the cannabis industry with his "Crime Family Cannabis".
