The Toledo, Ohio native MEkO decided to take his rap, poetry & spoken word talents serious after a short stint at the University of Toledo. While there, after performing in talent shows & several poetry slams, he decided that he’d rather perform music on a stage instead of walk across one with a degree. After finishing his first year, he finally made the decision to not return to school & focus strictly on his music career. A few months later, he gained serious believers & followers after dropping an emotional song/video titled “9.17.12” in which he spoke on financial & family issues as well as criticism about dropping out of school. He worked completely independent until him & a group of friends agreed to become an official music, graphic design, photography, videography, promotional & marketing group “#OE,” “We’re On Everything, Until We Own Everything & That’s On Everything!” Then, after a short hiatus, MEkO dropped a freestyle over Drake’s “5am In Toronto” titled “5am In Toledo” that got him noticed by the hottest local radio station within a few days of its release. After doing an interview & having his voice drops placed in the station’s daily rotation, the city realized that MEkO, as well as #OE, were serious. He has linked with & met a few big named hip-hop artists in a short period of time including: Kirko Bangz, Wale, Mac Miller, John Legend, Tyga & a few others. In such a short period of time, he has earned long term fans. Here is his latest mixtape titled “XX.” ELHH PREMIERE!!!
