23 April 1986 (age 34)
New Jersey, United States
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Neako grew up in the infamous "Hoodaville" section of the city. "Growing up in Newark as a kid, you’re just trying to live." says Neako about his upbringing. At the age of thirteen Neako was introduced to creating music and he has not stopped since. After being thrust into a neigborhood cypher, Neako knew then and there that he wanted to become a rapper.
His “Rubix Cube” mixtape series (Red Edition, Green Edition, and most recently Blue Edition) have earned him appearances on Sirius/XM Radio, New York’s Hot 97, MTV Germany, and coverage on popular hip-hop websites NahRight, 2DopeBoyz, OnSmash, and many more. Neako has collaborated with artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Young Chris, as well as rap legend Bun B.
"I love being a new artist, I get motivation from my peers and I know what I'm doing motivates them as well. We are all in this friendly competition to make each other better and this is what hip-hop is about".
Neako is not just an artist behind the mic, but he is a self made producer as well. Producing a vast amount of his own tracks himself, Neako has begun to create a unique sound that people love. "One of my greatest advantages is being a producer as well as a rapper. If I know what I need sonically then I can go in the studio and create it, and I am always striving to get better in all aspects of music."
