Biography

It’s no surprise… Hip-Hop is in a state of emergency, and when help is needed, the response is just three letters – S.O.S. There are few lyricists who possess the kind of fire that this Florida native holds. With a mic cord plugged directly into his heart, Mr. SOS has been an underground force, whose critical acclaim has pushed him further into the mainstream. His debut album How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb will bring this established mic controller to his deserved spot in Hip-Hop royalty… and he’s just getting started.

Born in San Francisco, CA, Mr. SOS was bound for South Florida by the age of six. His love affair with Hip-Hop began at a young age, starting with writing basic rhymes at 11 and learning how to deejay. “I knew Hip-Hop was something that I wanted to take seriously, but at that time, I didn’t exactly know how to do that,” explains SOS. Over the years, SOS honed his craft like most emcees – on the playground rhyming and forming makeshift rap crews. Making mixtapes out of loops and instrumentals, he started his own movement that carried onto to local stages.

Mr. SOS adopted the Internet early, marketing his work and creating beats and collaborations in a way that would take the rest of the industry years to learn. “It was the new shit,” he says, “and everyone said everything you need is on the Internet. I did searches for Hip-Hop and got on these mass email lists and message boards.” Piecing together songs with rappers around the world, and posting the songs around the web, SOS built his audience from the ground up.
