Dolo - Wake Em Up

Born Darius Kwmane Berry in the cold streets of Louisville Kentucky on May 13th, 1992, Dolo grew up in the west end of Louisville were its very drug and crime infested. He made his first recording in an actual studio at the age of ten years old on the end of one of his fathers, Kwmane Berry records. As a child Dolo looked up to his father who was heavily involved in the rap game as a local artist. Rap readily became an outlet for the young child to express his feelings and actions. Dolo was also the oldest child of his mother, Lynn Berry’s three children. On his matriculation through life many times he had to play as an authoritative figure for his younger siblings. With everything Dolo had to face in life, rapping became the outlet for him to express himself. Even as a student in school at each grade level his teachers noticed that he was exceptionally well in writing and poetry. His peers began to notice him in his high school days because he used to engage in many freestyle battles before and after school where he would have to uphold his reputation of being the nicest MC around. Rapping came very natural for the aspiring artist in High School he formed a rap group with two of his closest friends and they were called the “Blue Boyz”. The group came together and made a wide range of songs but never seemed to push themselves to become known to the world. This group of friends continued to make songs for about 4 years making a bunch of great songs to end up just making hits for their own ears to acknowledge. 

After he graduated high school he moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to attend Shaw University on a Track and Field scholarship.  Where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science in May of 2014. During his college years he focused on his schooling and placed his rapping career in the backseat. To only resurface his dreams of becoming a major rap artist and now once again he is a force to reckon with!
