SkyBlew and the Digidestined
Mario Farrow grew up in Alabama. Most of his neighborhoods were polluted with drugs, gangs, and violence. Surrounded by negativity and transitioning into various foster homes, he could have easily chosen the wrong path. Rather than succumbing to his environment and dire circumstances, Mario chose to rise above them and use music to soothe his soul and escape. He would freestyle and rhyme to himself, eventually penning his lyrics under the name, "Young Millionaire," in 2004.
In 2008 Mario relocated and acclimated to Chapel Hill, NC. During this transitional period, he delved deeply into his craft, linking up with local emcees and producers like ACee, Shoton, and KdotMills. Taking his lyricism to the next level, Mario decided to change his handle to "SkyBlew." His music is proving to be unique with an uplifting, powerful, and positive message in Hip-Hop. Most say, SkyBlew is a breath of fresh air! He pushes the boundaries with his music and brings a new/unique flavor to the music world. In addition to his solo career, SkyBlew is also half of the dynamic duo known as Blaze the Sky, with fellow emcee, Azon Blaze.
SkyBlew also dabbles in Nerdcore. He creatively incorporates video game and anime references/themes into his repertoire in a very unique way. It's all about having fun, being yourself & enjoying life! His Nerdcore performances includes: The Carolina Gaming Summit, Hoshicon & more! His distinctive sound is attributed to the diversity of his idols. His musical influences include: Lupe Fiasco, Nujabes, 2Pac, Blu & Exile, Scapegoat Wax, Common, Blue Scholars, Common Market, Amy Winehouse and a host of other artists from all genres. His studies have taken him full circle in the history of Hip-Hop.
SkyBlew is featured on some of the most notable blogs in cyberspace such as: 2DopeBoyz, DJBooth, MTV, KevinNottingham, and more. He has shared the stage with some of the finest artists in the business, including: Kendrick Lamar, Slick Rick, Lupe Fiasco, Flobots, Slum Village, The Cool Kids, Jedi Mind Tricks, Watsky, Chris Webby, Kirko Bangz, Grieves, Jean Grae, J-Live, Aer, Wax, Yonas, Camp Lo, David Dallas and more. He has also worked with clothing companies through sponsorship such as: Tilteed (www.tilteed.com
SkyBlew is destined for great things. His exposure is growing exponentially on the regional, national, and international levels. With over 1M (million) views on MySpace and a rapidly growing Facebook page, he is painting the sky an elevated shade of BLEW! He has over 600,000 downloads of his free LP's & Mixtapes. SkyBlew was also nominated for The NCUMAS (North Carolina Underground Music Awards) 2012 Lyricist Award! He recently, released his DEBUT ALBUM (Window Seat On That Midnight Train) which proved to be his BEST work up to date! Legendary performances are in the making...Appointed times appear, and with the state of Hip-Hop today, we need more from SkyBlew.
