Dark Lo ft. Dajah Monae – American Made

Dark Lo drops ‘American Made’ featuring Dajah Monae.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Dark Lo is best known for bringing his signature gritty delivery and street bars over smooth, soulful production.  Also known as “The Crook”, Dark Lo spent the majority of his young adult life in and out of prison.  It wasn’t until Lo met AR-AB that he turned his attention to hip hop.  

Despite always having a passion for music, AR-AB convinced Lo of his talent and he decided to take his craft to the next level.  Over the years, Dark Lo has released several acclaimed albums including The Crook, SK Tales, Darkaveli, and Ron Harvey Jr..  Most recently, Lo was named one of Complex’s ‘Underground Rappers You Should Know’ and teamed up with Harlem based producer V Don to bring you their collaborative album Timeless.

Now Lo is further cementing his place with the release of his new project American Made, which will be released on 10-4-19 and features appearances from Benny The Butcher, AR-AB and production from V Don among others.

After premiering the album’s first single, “Ripped Apart,” featuring Benny The Butcher with Complex, today Lo releases the project’s title track and second single “American Made.”

The concept for “American Made” was initially embedded in me when I was a kid.  When I was 11 or 12, a friend of mine was killed by gunfire that wasn’t meant for him.  When my classmates and I cried in class the next day and asked God why, our teacher made a statement to us and told us we were “American Made”—and there  wasn’t much we could do about it, because our slave masters trained us to hate each other for centuries” a pained Dark Lo commented to HipHopDx.  The teacher then referred us to a book “Willie Lytch Speech,” and at a very young age I understood that my people had been stripped of everything (our culture, our last names, and so much more).  That makes us “American Made.”

Dark Lo’s American Made will be released on October 4 and is now available for pre-orders, adds and favorites at your preferred DSP.
