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 proceeded to release several acclaimed projects and was named one of Complex’s ‘Underground Rappers You Should Know’.
Currently, Dark Lo and AR-Ab are embroiled in two high-profile cases, with AR-Ab currently incarcerated with a 45-year sentence after he was arraigned with eight other individuals in October 2018 on trafficking and distribution charges in Philadelphia. Dark Lo will begin serving the remainder of his seven+ year sentence for witness tampering on 9-30-21.
With his last project as a free-man, Dark Lo called upon the legendary Havoc of Mobb Deep, who produces all eleven of Extreme Measures tracks and also appears on two of them; including the project’s lead single, “Mob Tales,” which was exclusively premiered by Complex.
“Mobb Deep, Havoc, Prodigy (RIP!)-they are some of my rap idols, so it was a great honor for me to be able to work with Havoc on an entire project” Dark Lo commented to Complex. “Mob Tales” was the first beat Hav sent me, and he hit me with that grimy 90’s throwback vibe—what he does best. I couldn’t wait to lay my vocals on this track.”
“I’m very excited about my project with Lo. It’s been a minute since I worked with an artist that has such a gritty sound, and that appeals to me” stated Havoc. “Gritty and grimy is that kinda lane I like to work in most. Lo, and I lived in that lane with Extreme Measures.”
Dark Lo x Havoc’s Extreme Measures will be released on 9-24-21.
