Starlito is an American Recording Artist and Songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. He's the flagship artist for the independent label, Grind Hard, of which he is also the CEO. Starlito released his first mixtape in November of 2003, during his Sophomore year at Tennessee State University. January 2005 he signed a record deal with Cash Money/Universal Motown through a partnership with Yo Gotti, under the stage name "All Star Cashville Prince". By 2011, Star formally changed his name and began his independent journey with a very grassroots approach centered around disintermediation. During 2013 alone, Starlito Albums appeared on the Billboard Top 200 Charts THREE TIMES in a 4 month span (COLD TURKEY, STEPBROTHERS TWO, And FRIED TURKEY). Some of his philanthropic efforts include a Little League Football program near his old neighborhood (250+ kids, ages 5-12), scholarships, backpack giveaways, as well as a yearly turkey drive. 40+ mixtapes, and nearly 10 proper studio albums later, Starlito shows no sign of letting up as 2017 has already seen him release FIVE (5) projects. Manifest Destiny dropped in February. March marked the release of the Step Brothers THREE Album w/ Don Trip. Starlito debuted Billboard's HOT 200 Albums chart for the 6th time with the July 4th release of Hot Chicken. He's also inked partnerships w/ MobSquad Nard and Red Dot. He lives by his Creed: "Giving Reality Inspired New Direction (towards) Having A Real Dream" or as the acronym suggests, GRIND HARD!!!
