Growing up in a low-income neighbourhood, REAL1ONE learnt that you have to make your own luck.

Only a few times in a generation does the world stumble across artists whose work defies all time and space. REAL1ONE is one of those artists, as his latest project, “.Hollow Hearts & Ammo,” serves as a time capsule for his journey in life. The 16-track album is beautifully constructed and well thought out, delivering in thirty-eight well spent minutes a message that would take a lesser talented emcee 2 hours to convey.
Much of REAL1ONE’s writing inspiration comes from his own personal life stories, but he also draws from artists he’s inspired by, including Lil Wayne, Young Thug, and Meek Mill. A passionate lyricist making music about things that matter, REAL1ONE stays true to his artist name – a real artist, with an authentic voice. We can’t wait to see what his 2021/22 holds!
