WHO IS REUP RIO???

BORN IN GREENVILLE, SC – NATIVE TO THE UNDERWORLD MARKET! REUP-RIO AKA KINGPIN JR BUILT HIS LEGACY LOCALLY AS AN ADOLESCENT IN THE DRUG TRADE! LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT HE DISCOVERED HIS TALENT FOR GOOD MUSIC – (NOT TO BE AFFILIATED WITH CLUTTER MUSIC). RAISED IN THE STREETS AS A EARLY CHILD – HE BEGAN RECITING DOUG E FRESH, SLICK RICK, EASY E, ICE CUBE, 2-PAC, ERIC B & RAKIM JUST TO NAME A FEW. HIP-HOP WAS INSTILLED IN HIS DNA. HE LATER BECAME AWARE OF HIS RAW TALENT FOR MUSIC. AROUND THE AGE OF 10-11 HE WROTE HIS 1ST LEGITIMATE RHYME TO DA BRATS “SO FUNKDEFIED” IN HIS AUNTS HOME IN PLEASANT VALLEY, AND RAPPING IN 10TH GRADE STUDY HALL WITH LOCAL ARTIST C CLARK. OVER THE COURSE OF HIS EARLY STAGES HE MET A FEW LOCAL ACTS(PRODUCERS, SONGWRITERS, ARTISTS) BEATOVEN, BUTLA BEATS, BIG TEE, BEATBANGERS JUST TO NAME A FEW. BEGINNING TO RECONIZE HE WAS CUT FROM A DIFFERENT CLOTH AND BRANDISHED A DIFFERENT SOUND THEN EVERYBODY ELSE. HE THEN REALIZED THAT THE PENNICLE HE WAS TRYING TO REACH WAS RIGHT IN HIS GRASP!

DETERMINED TO MAKE HIS DREAM REALITY, HE BEGAN TO CRAFT HIS WORK. PUTTING OUT SINGLE AFTER SINGLE, WORKING WITH OTHER LOCAL ARTIST IN HIS CITY. RIO GOT TIRED OF JUST DROPPING SINGLES SO HE DECIDED TO PUT TOGETHER A FULL MIXTAPE “I AM KING PIN JR.” WHOM HE LINKED UP WITH PRIMETIME SC ARTIST “TRAPSTAR” CEO OF EXTRAGRIND. WHILE IN THE MIDST OF PUTTING TOGETHER HIS OWN COMPANY “BREADWINNAZ ENT.” TOGETHER THEY HOSTED OPEN MIC NIGHTS AT CREAM NIGHT LOUNGE SUPPORTING LOCAL TALENT THEN GRACING THE STAGE EVERY WEEK TO SHOWCASE THEIR TALENT.

TRAVELING TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE STATE (METRO,COLUMBIA,SUMTER,SPARKLE CITY) DOING SHOWS, PERFORMANCES, VIDEOS, ETC WAS BEGINNING TO BECOME A REPEAT IN HIS AGENDA.

HE TOOK HIS PASSION A STEP FURTHER WORKING DILLGENTLY ON HIS 2ND MIXTAPE TO ANOTHER LEVEL. CHANGING HIS CRITERIA FROM HARD STREET TALK TO MAKING MORE GOOD MUSIC. SONGS THAT PEOPLE IN THIS GENERATION CAN RELATE TO. EX. WHO ARE YOU, THATS MY KINDA CHICK, AND HIS NEW SINGLE OFF THE MIXTAPE “THE CEO”  TOO HOT 2 COOL-SWAGGER TO THE MAX.

WANTING TO CHANGE HIS TITLE IN FEAR OF TOO MANY CEO TITLES HE STUCK WITH HIS DECISION, “WHEN YOUR THE SON OF A KING PIN SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE”.

THE CEO IS A BRANCH OFF FROM “I AM KING PIN JR” – KPJR TAKING YOU DEEP INTO THE MIND OF KING PIN AKA RIO – SHOWING YOU HIS DIVERSITY W/MUSIC AND HIS RAW TALENT. HIS NEW SINGLE “TOO HOT 2 COOL” PRODUCED BY BIG TEE @BIG_TEE WAS A INSTANT HIT. THE VIDEO WAS SHOT BY SHOTZ
