Following a successful release of his debut album, "It Takes A Village," the soon to be nineteen-year-old, Brooklyn MC, has garnered accolades for lyricism belying his young age and enlisted the support of acclaimed producers, Marco Polo and Statik Selektah. Lonzo was just 15 when the process behind the 12-track It Takes A Village began, but the themes display a maturity of a seasoned writer. The album is a collection of stories from his high-school years, including those inspired by a father in recovery from alcoholism, a mother recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a complex relationship with an older brother and internal struggles with religion. With a heavy focus on family, the album and it’s title reflect the notion that we are all stronger as a unit, whether related by blood or otherwise.
Shortly after an interview and freestyle with Statik on Shade 45, Lonzo took to Knitting Factory for his first, packed, headline show. With a new LP on the way, Lonzo is now gearing up to return to the stage before shipping off in January for his first semester of college at Florida International University.
