Do or Die member Belo is preparing to drop his debut solo album The Truth on The Legion Records label through Asylum/WEA.
Scheduled for an October 17th release, the set features the single â€œExclusiveâ€ featuring Johnny P and includes special guest appearances from Ric Jilla, Crucial Conflict, Malik Yusef, OutLaws and more.
Belo spoke on the meaning behind the album’s title.
â€œI picked The Truth because a lot of the stuff I wanted to express I couldnâ€™t express when I was doing albums with Do or Die,â€ Belo said. â€œI wanted to touch on some topics that were real truthful, that were really real, as to why I call it The Truth.”
Belo also talked about finally being able to explore his spiritual side.
“I had never gotten a chance to touch on my personal spirituality. A lot of people donâ€™t know that side of me because they hear me rapping laid-back and smooth. I have done a lot on the streets, but they donâ€™t know the street side and the stuff that Iâ€™ve gone through in life.â€
The Chicago native tackles an assortment of topics on the set including terrorist attacks on America, the war in Iraq and the inadequecies of the Bush administration.
