DC Upcoming Artist “Foleone - Mixed Emotions Pt. 2

My Artist name is foleone. (Foh - lee - on ). Like the godfather. I got my name from a homie out the penitentiary I was doing time with. My real name is fredo I’m from Washington DC. born in caver terrace NE and raised in Potomac gardens SE. I’m from where nigga kill you just because you looked at him. I grew up in foster care & running the streets. Youngest of 9 kids by my mother. I grew up listening to geto boys and lil boosie. I love music because it’s the only thing in life that’s positive that I realized I was good at. I was always a f* up. Getting suspended, arrested, jumped all types of crazy sh*. Music has always offered a balance in my life, going through the hardships of life such as foster care , teen life, juvenile incarceration and much more. I never let it break me. What makes me different than the rest in my opinion is my versatility and my bold lyrical cadence. Having the ability to gravitate with the flow of the beat.Also i feel as though it’s my ambition to succeed. My hunger is equal to my struggle. I will be great. Having the feeling of knowing I get to show my mother that her youngest son a legend. The feeling of knowing that I’m beating the odds and not feeding into statistics. In 5 years I see myself in Dubai w my future wife and kids on the golden sand enjoying the fruits of my labor. I wanna be the first one in my family to break poverty. To break the chains. I bring hope. I bring reason. A reason for change. A reason to stand on all 10 as one. Anything is possible in this world. you jus gotta want it. You gotta put in that foot work. I want to be remembered by my integrity and my loyalty.
