This young man hit me on twitter hoping I’d check him out, and I’m glad I did. He did his thing! Check him out!
In his own words:
My name is Albert Johnson aka Merlino. I come from North Philly surrounded by drugs and voilence and my rap bars reflected just that. Now as a 33 year old husband and father, I have a much bigger story to tell. My story is to inspire those who came up the same way I did to do better without losing their “rawness”. My sound is a mix between street and gospel. I plan to bridge that gap. Music inspires everyone so why not avoid the voilence and drugs. Plus I don’t curse . I’ve worked with major figgas as well. My goal now is to reach the “lost” or the “unreachable”.
