Jermaine Coleman, better known as Maino, is a platinum recording Hip Hop artist from Brooklyn, NY. He is best known for his debut hit single titled “Hi Hater” and “All The Above” featuring T-Pain became certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In addition, the Brooklyn rapper collectively sold over 4 million digital singles to date globally. Maino grew up in the once poverty-stricken area of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Unfortunately, both of his parents were addicted to illegal drugs. Living life as a youth with little support and guidance steered Maino in the wrong direction. While incarcerated in the 1990s, he spent time in the box for 23 hours a day, where he would rap to himself to keep himself from losing his mind. Surprisingly, he was able to master the gift of rapping without writing down the lyrics, which was the moment that saved his life. After Maino’s release from prison, he started his independent record label imprint Hustle Hard Entertainment. Then, after several mixtape releases with established guest features, he signed with Universal Records. The relationship with Universal would be short-lived but it would be the opportunity for a more focused Maino to utilize his relationships and savviness to land a deal with Atlantic Records.
The Lobby Boyz self-titled album is available now to pre-order/pre-save via all major digital streaming platforms
