From one of the most creative and polarizing regions in hip hop, Capolow was born and bred in The Bay. More specifically, East Oakland was where he grew up for the majority of his young life. Navigating through the hardships of life in the ghetto forced Capolow to grow up fast. Since a young age, Capolow has always had an affinity for music. From making his first songs at twelve with his older brother, to listening to the Hot Boys and Boosie Badass “[Music],It's always been in my heart.” It was this love of music that led him to help form the group “Trill Youngins” with his childhood friends. However a series of road blocks would throw a young Capolow off his destined path. While fighting legal issues and mourning the loss of numerous friends to the streets, Capolow began to drop solo singles like “Highway Robbery” and “Drip”. On top of juggling legal issues and a rap career, he became a father at nineteen. Forcing him to take rap more seriously, he eventually signed to Cinematic Music Group. He is coming off the release of his newest mixtape “Room 304” which dropped on February 28th. In the meantime Capolow is out in the Bay, keeping his faith in God and his pole, Aye Aye!
