23-year-old Orlando, Florida, rapper Lingo Jonez is making some serious noise with his infectious single, “We Got It (#FWAN).” Having used music as an outlet to stay away from the negative past times often adopted in his environment, he attended Florida A&M University where he studied business administration with the desire to one day become the owner of his music franchise. A seasoned up and coming with a healthy team–and network–behind him, the record, “We Got It,” quickly took off as it made it’s way through the popular nightclubs and showcase circuits in Tallahassee.
Added extra buzz to his name, Lingo teamed up with the top DJs and promoters in Orlando to solidify a name for himself as not only an artist but a popular nightlife host. He seems to have that self-made aura that worked so well for artists like Tech N9ne and Too $hort–amongst a host of others–who were able to build their empires with little intervention from the label suits who tend to de-organify everything they touch. On top of that, he has a model thing popping off, which spins off into numerous revenue streams. His future is bright.
