Chicago’s M3LO Capone has seen it all. Senseless violence, police corruption and the loss of friends in Chicago's South Side, where the rapper grew up. As a teenager, M3LO would use music in a therapeutic way to express himself and cope with his own struggles. Eventually, the rising artist would pursue a career in rap.
M3LO first recorded a song at the age of 14 during a school trip. After hearing himself on a beat, he fell in love with music and realized he could make a living off his passion. The up-and-comer is also a songwriter but what makes him exceptional is his versatility. "I have many unique sounds that go with many different beats," he says. "I use them depending on the vibe or tone of the beat being used."
While Capone wants the world to see him as a promising musical talent, he is also looking to make a change in his community. His goal is to connect with people everywhere and impact their lives through his music.
Aiming to reach a wider audience, Capone will be sharing new music videos ahead of the release of his mixtape, "All Gas No Breaks". His latest single "Vindictive" is out now across all streaming platforms, along with all of his previous work. The visual for "Vindictive" is currently available on YouTube.
