iHipHop Distribution is proud to announce its partnership with Neako for his new label, LVLYSL. “Neako is an extremely talented artist and producer, and our entire staff is excited to be working with him and his LVLYSL movement,” says Ruddy Rock, Director of A&R at iHipHop Distribution. With a sound all his own and only in his early 20s, Neako has already worked with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, Bun B, Curren$y, Harry Fraud and many more.
Since 2009, Neako has released 11 mixtapes, consisting of nearly 200 songs. Upon the release of Neako’s latest full-length mixtape, LVLZEBRA, Erin Duncan of XXL declared, “the style and varying levels of otherworldliness has become Neako’s forte, as he’s not shy about his penchant for smoke and staying fly.” Most recently, Neako was featured in the coveted “Show & Prove” section of XXL Magazine, which asserted, “Neako shows he has a solid flow, tough punchlines and drawl that’s sure to have listeners under his influence.” He was also named a “Top Artist For 2012” by JENESIS Magazine, and has drawn an overwhelming amount of praise from fans and critics alike. As Ernest Estime of The Source states, “If you do not know him, get familiar with him.”
Neako is currently preparing the release of his debut album, These Are The Times (T.A.T.T.) on November 27th. The album proves why Neako is in a lane of his own, with a unique balance of skillful production, lyricism and songwriting. The first single from These Are The Times is “I Made It All“, a cinematic anthem produced by Neako himself, filled with beautifully arranged keys and a triumphant hook. The song exemplifies Neako’s constant grind, as he proves that he’s earned every bit of his success. It’s no wonder that DJBooth.net insists, “When you’re as talented and hard-working as Neako, success is practically written into your destiny.” Neako is currently preparing a music video for “I Made It All” that will surely be as inspired as the song itself.
Before These Are The Times is released, Neako will drop his highly-anticipated mixtape, Ess Ess, in September to give back to his loyal followers that have supported him and the LVLYSL movement since its inception.
Neako’s debut album, These Are The Times (T.A.T.T.), will hit stores worldwide on November 27, 2012 via LVLYSL/iHipHop Distribution.
