Los Angeles-based rapper Bino Rideaux delivers confident rhymes about the daily struggles of street life. He received attention through numerous collaborations with his close associate Nipsey Hussle, including 2017 mixtape No Pressure, and has also worked with rappers like Casey Veggies and G Perico. While his earlier material was often brash and volatile, his sound has grown smoother and more Auto-Tune-heavy with releases like 2019's Sorry 4 tha Wait.
Rideaux first started releasing music around 2016, issuing mixtapes such as Le' Garcon (with DJ Carisma) and Life Is Like a Movie, and making appearances on tracks by Nipsey Hussle and Johnny Cinco. No Pressure, an eight-song mixtape with Hussle, appeared in 2017, and Rideaux's EP 4 was released in 2018. Following Hussle's untimely death in 2019, Rideaux recorded the vulnerable "Of All Things" in tribute. Sixtape (with Blxst) and Sorry 4 tha Wait both appeared the same year, in advance of Rideaux's debut studio album. Released in May 2020, Outside included the spotlight track "Cold Feet" with Ty Dolla $ign. ~ Paul Simpson
