Writing since he was ten, beat-boxing since twelve, producing and singing since he was sixteen, and rapping since he was seventeen, LBO is a man of many talents. And with those talents, LBO was able to create his first mixtape, "Old Soul." With that mixtape, he was featured on the See.Me "The Story of the Creative" Exposition, Mr. Dreamz Magazine, HotNewHipHop, DJBooth.net and many other sites.
"Music and lyricism are those outlets that go above and beyond life's limits," LBO says. His music can be described as hip-hop music with an east-coast and urban type of vibe. Here's what HotNewHipHop had to say about him becoming a finalist in their HeatSeeker competition.
HotNewHipHop Heat Seeker Final 4 Edition 12:
Give this man a beat and he will go in. LBO is a Long Island native with a new take on the classic East Coast flow. He flows over his beats smooth and effortlessly like Jay-Z, but hits hard, like punctuation at the end of punch lines, evoking Nasir Jones. The combination of flowing smooth, yet hitting hard separates this talented emcee from other newcomers and we look forward to hearing freestyles, and singles alike from LBO.
