“I do Everything, I edit my own pics, Make my own beats, Mix and master my own songs, I’m my own manager”. – Rio Scoob
Independent artist are musicians that have total control over everything they want to display, we all know that nothing great was built in a day. When you listen to an artist’s music what is it that draws a person in? The Engagement, The Experience, The Lyrics, The Movement. Meet Rio Scoob.
Scoob was born June 28, 1992 and raised on the southside of Chicago. In his early Teens he moved in with his sister “second mom” and lived the suburban life in Plano,IL. He went to Yorkville High School, lived in Oak Park, graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School, chilled on the West Side, downtown, he’s been everywhere, Chicago is his city.
“My life was crazy, so I’m quite sure everybody else’s life is crazy, we all go through things”
Something we all can relate to with Scoob is that he has had a life that is crazy and sweet at the same time. In the midst of it all he was an average kid who really liked to play games. While having a conversation with him I believe I’ve heard him mention Pokemon, so he may be devotee.
“I didn’t really listen to music like that when I was growing up as a kid, growing up and shit I was into games and just being a weird child (laughs)”.
Around the age of 11 years old, Scoob was introduced to hip hop after he was questioned one day by a guy, if he ever heard of 50 cent? Scoob mistakenly thought the guy was asking for money but he was talking about the rapper. From that day forward Scoob got curious, he started listening to the radio more, researching artist, while starting to rap and make beats of his own at the same time. He is grown man now, doing major things as his career progresses. Have a look-see at his Elevator freestyle above which dropped a couple a weeks ago. It has 3,000 views.
Having relationship issues? Rio Scoob just released a song last week “Ain’t Love” which also has 3,000 plays. His motivation behind the song was from his real life feelings and bad vibes that he and his present girlfriend go through, just as all of us do when in a relationship. “This is about people feeling single in a relationship in a way, it’s always someone getting their heart broke, everybody has a breakup story”.
