Biography

If Andre 3000 and Eminem had a Hip-Hop Superbaby, it would be KALEO FUTURISTO. KALEO is an incredibly unique artist with an equally incredible look, sound and message. He is one of those rare artistic mavericks who can alter the landscape of the music industry. He is an extraordinarily talented individual who blends product and purpose to produce a unique and eclectic musical creation that is primed to explode upon the world! KALEO FUTURISTO, simply put, has that intangible "IT" quality that defines a SUPERSTAR.
KALEO's fascinating life began in the culturally diverse and musically rich city of Pasadena, California but, his upbringing was anything but rose colored. He was born to an unwed European-American mother and a Hawaiian-Spanish-Puerto Rican father who left the family before KALEO was born which forced his mother to fend for her family on her own. Although KALEO's mother provided more than enough love and spiritual support for her children, she struggled financially to provide for her kids, later to be placed on welfare. KALEO FUTURISTO's early years were filled with hand-me-down clothes, watered down milk, and old rewrapped toys for Christmas but this was just the start of KALEO's trying experiences.

At the age of 5, KALEO almost died when he had a horrific accident, falling head first from a three story structure, suffering various head injuries and two broken arms. Although an extremely traumatizing experience, his amazingly quick recovery would exemplify the mental, physical and spiritual strength that would come to define this amazing musicians artistic abilities.
Perhaps the most challenging and difficult times for KALEO, dealt with his mothers clinical illness known as Compulsive Hoarders Disorder. KALEO's home was virtually filled to capacity with everything from old newspapers, and broken furniture, to cardboard boxes, and empty bottles and cans. Because of this abnormal situation, no one, not even his closest friends were ever allowed into his home. Teased and embarrassed because of his families dilapidated car and home, KALEO's already difficult situation soon reached its height. The gas in KALEO's home was shut off. In order for them to turn it back on, the gas company had to enter the residence. For the next thirteen years, KALEO was without heat in the home; having to endure cold winter months huddled in nothing but blankets. And when he wanted to do something as simple as taking a shower, he was forced to take a pot of water, boil it on a hot plate, and bathe in the tub. Life was anything but smooth sailing for this AMAZINGLY MAGNETIC artist but, these experiences are what he says have made him the STRONG, CONFIDENT, and FOCUSED individual that he is today. It is also what he attributes his present-day musical SUCCESS to, as well as his LIGHT-HEARTED, FUN-LOVING and FULLY ACCEPTING approach to LIFE.

KALEO FUTURISTO's life has been filled with challenges but, he has always seemed to rise above all of the possible stumbling blocks and has created a quarry of positive stepping stones along the way. His upbringing in the racially mixed city of Pasadena, his attendance at a predominately African-American high school, and his later work as a teacher in the Pasadena Unified School District have given KALEO's MUSIC and SPIRIT a CHERISHED, UNIQUE and ADVANTAGEOUS perspective on all people, cultures, and viewpoints that he has been blessed enough to live with, teach and grow up with. This diverse upbringing is what Kaleo attributes his ECLECTIC musical and artistic styles to.

KALEO has always been described as a JOYFUL, INTELLIGENT and TALENTED child, and has always delved into all things with a fiery PASSION. As a young musician, Kaleo was recognized with All-City Music Honors in Pasadena for his musicianship. As a young artist, he received full-ride scholarships to art schools for his visual art. As a scholar, he earned a Bachelors Degree from the well respected University of California, Los Angeles(UCLA), and even as an athlete at the university, he EXCELLED and conquered great odds. After playing virtually no organized football for his whole life, he tried out for the UCLA Football team and surprised everyone as a walk-on by making the national powerhouse team. In addition to all of these accomplishments his musical exploits have taken him around the world. From L.A. to New York, Mexico to Europe and back again. Working with ultra talented artists such as Multi-Platinum and Grammy Award Nominated Artists Jon B, and Marvin Davis (respectively). Now, after everything that KALEO has been through, achieved, and experienced, he is poised and ready to take the world by storm. Not only because he wants to but, because he feels that he has to. KALEO says, "that the POWERFULLY UNIFYING message that is in our music is necessary for our world to hear, and I am one of the voices that need to bring that message to the people." KALEO FUTURISTO is the vehicle that will usher in this new, raw, a

"I THOUGHT" Lyrics

Written By: Kaleo Futuristo

HOOK:
I Thought I had to have it all,
The fancy cars and all the clothes,
but now I realize I was wrong...
'cause all that I need is inside of me.

1st VERSE:
I Thought I had to have diamond rings,
Thought I had to have all the bling,
Thought I had to have a whip,with a grip of the finer things,
Thought I had to be chipped with designer jeans.

Thought I had to have a mansion and a yaught,
Thought I had to have girls who were hot for me,
Thought I had to have girls do a lot for me,
Wash, cook, and clean up the spot for me.

Thought I had to get major paid,
Get a deal with a major, ‘cause majors pay.
Blow up on the radio with major play,
Then blow around he world in a major way.

Thought I had to be a playa type king,
Thought i had to have playa type things.
Thought that the real playa was me,
but only thing gettin’ played was me.

HOOK:
I Thought I had to have it all,
The fancy cars and all the clothes,
but now I realize I was wrong...
'cause all that I need is inside of me.

2nd VERSE:
Thought I had the game figured all out,
Make money, make dough, cash out.
Get honies, get fame, get clout,
I thought that that’s what it’s all about.

Thought I had to do all them things,
Thought I had to live the life fame and fortune bring,
Thought I had to have everything,
Just to feel good about this world and the life I lead but,

Then I found out about the real,
That it ain’t whatcha got it’s the way ya feel,
That it ain’t whaatcha bought or ya fancy frills,
It’s the way that ya deal with the hand they deal so,

Love yourself and respect all people,
Even without wealth ya still equal,
No matter how ya look you’re my people,
So let’s start buildin’ now!

HOOK:
I Thought I had to have it all,
The fancy cars and all the clothes,
but now I realize I was wrong...
'cause all that I need is inside of me.

3rd VERSE:
It don’t really matter, how much you say you’ve got.
It don’t really matter ‘bout all the things you’ve bought.
It don’t really matter if you in magazines.
It only matters that you love your inner-being.

OUTRO:
I Thought, I Thought, I Thought, I knew it all...
I Thought, I Thought, I Thought, I knew it all...
I Thought, I Thought, I Thought, I knew it all...
I Thought, I Thought, I Thought, I knew it all...
(Just when ya think that you know it all.)

"SUSIE Q" Lyrics

Written By: Kaleo fUtURisTo

1ST VERSE:
She was a girl from around the way, and I knew that girl since 7th grade.
She was so damn cute, smart one too, and we all called her Susie Q.
Not too fast not too slow,
always knew the speed to go, always knew that she was more than she some girl or a high school ho.......ld up,
wait a minute now,
in 10th grade and things goin’ down.
Havin’ a brand new boyfriend sounds
a whole lot better than homework now.
But Susie’s mom said, “no boyfriends, you’ve got to get your education like your dad says. And if you do that, you will go far. And trust me honey these boys ain’t nuthin’ but cute face and a fast car.”
HOOK:
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you are 9 months due,
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you’re 9 months due.
2ND VERSE:
So, Susie don’t listen to momma(momma),
She’d rather deal with all the drama(drama),
She saw her friends and what they doin’(doin’),
They started ditchin’ and she, stopped payin’ attention and she,
went to the high school ball game,
lookin’ for a new thang,
somethin’ that’s fine(So Fine x2)
She wanted to copy what she’d seen on the reality t.v. on channel 9.
She saw this boy lookin’ dead at her,
She smiled at the boy and the boy concurred.
Passing glances,
quick romances,
gettin’ antsy,
I hope he asks me,
out for a night on the town,
instead he asked her in right now and says,
“Hey girl, gonna have a party at my house,
trust me, my parents are outta town,”
So, she went with her friends,
first thing the boy wanna show her his bed,
then she started gettin’ all nervous,
and her friends said, “don’t worry girl,
it’s only him.”
Susie Q didn’t know what to do next,
folks never talked to her about sex,
all she remembered next was,
“Trust me.”
HOOK:
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you are 9 months due,
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you’re 9 months due.
BRIDGE:
La,La,La,La’s
3RD VERSE:
So came the next week and Susie missed her period,
and knew that she had never been late(late),
Went to the store for a test and when she got home she took it and found out that she was pregnant(pregnant),
She told her friends and one said that she had to get rid of it and the other said to keep it(it),
Susie wished she would have listened to her folks when they said that fast boys would get in the way(way),
That’s kind of true but the truth is that Susie Q was not taught about what to do,
and now the fingers pointing at you,
it’s the teachers, parents, the system,
her friends, now her decision ids having to be made,
Susie Q, Poor Susie Q
HOOK:
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you are 9 months due,
Susie Q,
I can’t believe that you’re 9 months due.
BRIDGE:
La,La,La,La’s

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa
