Still working on that hot first release.



RioTheTruth is an aspiring rap artist from Cleveland, OH.  Whose amazing song making abilities allows him to continuously produce the music that people love to hear. His overall energy and personality easily makes him one of the funnest artist to work with or simply be around. It also leaks out on stage during any of his performances. Confidence, swagger and relativity allows him to command any crowd through his music. Even more impressively, you can always feel the hunger he has to be great. Considerably, one of the best up and coming artists in Cleveland, Oh. The total package, truly. A person who exhibits professionalism while demanding perfection.

Growing up in Cleveland,OH, you see many things that can easily break the spirits of the strongest individual. Mario Scott (RioTheTruth) will attest to that. Simply wanting to escape the horrors of family struggles and the violence of poverty stricken neighborhoods, Mario turned to music. After meeting a group of guys that shared his passion, he joined them in creating a rap group called Hoodfellas.  Rapping since eight years old, at the age of 14 you can clearly see the greatness he possessed. Unfortunately, the incarceration of the group's front runner led to them parting ways. Subsequently, the remaining members reunited and formed a new group called TTSU. Staying true to his craft, you could hear the growth as an artist and person. Later, that formation failed to coexist and again, he was back to square one.

Of course, not wanting to Mario accepted the reality of being alone in his pursuit of a music career. Doing collaborations with other artists and producers added to his confidence. Not really believing if he could do this on his own, he remained focused. More focus than ever.

In 2016, a very close friend expressed his belief and confidence in him. Not only as an artist but also as a potential business partner. Having such a good relationship with each other, Mario was convinced to join Tha Coaliton Music Group as a solo act. Today, he's not only the number one priority of the label but an owner also. And, I'm sure he's on the verge of greatness. Continuing to gain momentum song by song and through appearances, RioTheTruth is surely becoming the people's favorite overall entertainer. As he will say, "I run the westside, we want the city, the region, the globe. All while changing lives and making his mark on music."
