Quitting the Band - LOS

While it seems most MCs claim they were writing rhymes in the womb, Liberty Heights native LOS confesses that he “got into music late.” Until he was 18, LOS' primary passion was basketball.

There he would join his kids, his beefy entourage and a chicer pair of sunglasses, then a luxury car convoy would roll to the projects uptown. After the game, he would pay his street-marketing respects to a Harlem neighborhood where he once lived.
