Palermo Stone is a Pittsburgh hip hop artist with two solo albums under his belt ("For My Culture" - 2011; "Beautiful Music" - 2010). He is an extremely diverse artist who prides himself on creating music with a powerful message. His style focuses on bringing the musical and artistic aspect back to hip hop. Having developed successful relationships with several hip hop focal points, including Mac Miller, The Come Up, and New Orleans rising star Dee-1, Palermo is on the road to becoming a national force to be reckoned with.
Nearly one year after his previous release, Palermo Stone returns with his third solo album, R.A.R.E. [Revitalizing Art; Reinventing Emotion], a polished record that looks to break down the walls of what is considered traditional hip hop. The album finds the Pittsburgh rapper more focused, using his artistic versatility to deliver songs with more depth, diversity, vulnerability and personal substance than before. Led by the powerful lead single, "Freedom Writers (Feat. Dee-1)," each track carries a message that is complimented by production from Hitt of MCM, Jazz Logic, Big Jerm, Aus10, 93P, Andrew Lloyd, Sango and Chuck LaGaron.
The music has been complimented by an art book for which Palermo Stone enlisted the help of artists from across the nation to assist him in creating a unique visual experience for his album R.A.R.E. Secondly, the book tells the story of the conception of R.A.R.E Nation and how the album R.A.R.E came to be. The book can be previewed and purchased HERE, and you can stream and purchase the album below!
