Solo — Commas

“I ain’t waiting fuck being patient; if they don’t give it to me imma fucking take it like — ‘put the deal in the bag,’ nigga!”

Mississippi-born and Illinois-raised rapper Solo started rapping five years ago; unfortunately, he spent the better part of that time was spent locked up in the system. Being locked up, though, gives one plenty of time to think — so, post release, Solo realised he needed to make some positive changes in his life. He began to get an overwhelmingly positive to his skills, so he decided to buckle down and put all his efforts into pursuing a musical career. He’s been rocking stages across the Midwest, and getting lots fo love and hometown spins from 107.5 WGCI, 92.3, and over 300 college stations across the nation. Judging by the success of his EP, Commas, and the video for the title track, which so far has over 50k spins, Solo is on to something.

His latest visual is a clean, quasi-NSFW video that — lyrically — goes for the jugular over a mainstream trap sound. It, frankly, looks like a hit that could very well resonate with younger listeners; this is a sentiment that’s apparently echoed go by the college spins, which Mac Miller proved to be vital in building a massive fan base from a grass roots level. The record, which is available on I-Tunes packed with a second single called “Me,” seems to be picking up steam, especially as he continues to rock stages — and reach out to new fans on a personal level.

Solo has seen a lot, and been through a lot; you can listen to him and know that he speaks from a certain degree of authenticity that many rappers don’t speak from. He’s been down and is now on a huge rebound. Head over to I-Tunes and grab the single — and check the video below!
