Just press play. Hellorello, like a true lyricist, gives the music lover something to visualize with every word in every track. Before he developed a passion for music, he studied word play through physical expression with acting and theatre; which later lead him into professional photography and videography.
Openly penning his life experiences over a fusion of abstract sounds and rhythms; Hellorello is not a typical rapper or conformist.
Baltimore City raised, homeless at a young age, getting jumped right after church, Hellorello gives his aggression, his love, and his creativity with strong meaning and relatable concepts.

After working with some of baltimores best producers Rod Lee, Don trunk, Mighty Mark, Man williams, Javersal and more to be named, he feels that he has found himself musically.
