Ralo’s’ music is a combination of ingenuity and power. He has worked with signed acts such as Future, Shawty Lo, Young Thug, and Young Scooter. This experience has given Ralo the opportunity to prove to his fans that he has what it takes to surpass some of the more popular mainstream and independent artists out today.

Born Terrell Davis and raised in Atlanta neighborhood, known as "The Bluff", He learned at an early age that hustling was a way of life and a way to keep a roof over his family's head. Raised with a single mother and a younger sister, Ralo quickly became the man of the house. His love for music helped sustain his creativity as he started writing and rapping at 11 years old. By 13, he was the main breadwinner in the home, selling DVDs and CDs.

Now with a new commitment to his music, Ralo wants to get his message out to the world. While focusing on his business, he established a music movement and community foundation called "Famerica", once known as an Atlanta gang. Already making waves in the southeast region, Ralo’s main goal is to leave a positive imprint on this culture.

Ralo is one of the hardest working independent artists in the game right now. Currently, working on his release of his Diary of the Streets mixtape and introduces his Famerican Tuesday series, where he tells his story through visuals.

“I want to have a good influence on the community and raise some awareness; I want us to stop fighting against each other”, says Ralo.
