RUN DOWN: Born February 16, 1988, known professionally as Solo, is an American Hip Hop Recording Artist from Staten Island. Solo released his first mixtape in September of 2013 titled ‘Easily Overlooked’, a mixtape that displayed his unique style and lyrical ability. The tape received rave reviews from fans and music critics alike. Since its 2013 release, Solo has been doing countless shows with the profitable tour company ‘They Got Skills’, an opportunity that granted him touring experience and sharpened his skills as a performer.
In May 2016, Solo’s single titled “Business” was in rotation on Hot 97’s The Funkmaster Flex show. Flex caught wind of the song at a nightclub he was DJing at one night, requested a clean version, and played the single on his show for two months straight. This was yet another confirmation that Solo has what it takes to produce radio ready, chart topping material.
Not only is he savvy musically, but he’s in tune with the business side of the industry, building relationships and mastering the art of networking. Much has come from his affiliation with Viking, and TNB Management. In August, he received the opportunity to perform at the Harold Washington Cultural Center in Chicago, in front of 1,000 fans. Apart from that, he has been performing all over NYC, in nightclubs and venues. He received exceptional reviews from latest NYC performance, which impressively took place in NYC at The Legendary SOB’s.
Solo is currently finishing up his next project titled ‘Zeekos Way Volume 2’. The project is s set to release in November, 2016. As of now, Solo remains unsigned, however, a young man with the talent, ability and the drive that Solo holds, it’s only a matter of time… the best is yet to come.
