Biography

Verb Stylo
Age: 24
Birthplace: El Paso, Texas

With his dynamic delivery, witty word play, and bass baritone pipe, Verb Stylo is poised to become one of today’s newest Rap Super Stars.
Verb Stylo grew up all over California, making stops in Oakland, Los Angeles, and eventually, settling in Fresno. Now hailing from the Central Valley, he is re-drawing the Rap map by simultaneously giving lyrical nourishment for the mind while leaving an undeniable mark on California dance floors.
Before getting signed to Solid Ground Records, Verb Stylo was an avid hip hop fan that would listen to countless hours of music’s best offerings. This relentless approach has helped to deliver his spectacular debut album… “Hell or High Water.”
Ever since he can remember, Verb Stylo has always been a music lover. “I still remember my mom cleaning up while she played all the old school classics” says Verb. Rhyming isn’t the only way Verb’s incredible talent is heard either, he has produced many of the tracks on “Hell or High Water!” “He’s a genius with the pen,” says fellow R&B singer Sergyo. “Verb Stylo is like no other artist I’ve seen for a minute. When I think of Verb Stylo, I think of a cleverly mixed Biggie Smalls and Xzibit sound; it is then that I begin to understand. This cat is the complete package!” Always a showman, his success on stages all throughout California is undeniable. His rapidly growing fan base will all agree that Verb Stylo has been up-staging many of today’s hottest rappers in their own shows! This becomes more evident that during live shows, his uncanny performance brings so much excitement and energy, that it is nearly impossible to translate.
Although it is fact now, during their respective heydays: Rakim, KRS-ONE, and Grandmaster Flash, were all destined to become Hip Hop icons. Later, so were The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur, all of whom have been Verb Stylo’s greatest influences. However, in today’s complex rhyme styles and intricate topics, there is a DEMAND for an emcee that is able to stand on his own merit, minus the usual formulas and gimmicks.
Verb Stylo proves to be THAT emcee through unmatched lyrical mastery and conceptual genius. We at SOLID GROUND RECORDS invite you into the mind of a genius, history in the making… VERB STYLO ”Coming to some speakers near you!”
