Polo G

Polo G has been unstoppable and is one of music’s top rising talents. Aptly named Polo G after his favorite lifestyle brand, Polo by Ralph Lauren, and his slain friend Gucci, Polo is determined to leave his mark. Following the highly anticipated release of the 22-year-old Chicago rapper’s latest single, “RAPSTAR”, the song has gone on to explode worldwide to instant chart success, earning Polo his first ever Billboard Hot 100 #1 single, while debuting at #1 on Spotify in the U.S. and #1 on the Apple Music global chart. “RAPSTAR” achieved the highest streaming debut of 2021 for a male artist and the 2nd highest streaming debut of the year for any artist in the U.S. with 56 million streams, only behind Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License” and coming in ahead of Drake’s “What’s Next”. His sophomore album THE GOAT debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 in May 2020 with 10 of the songs simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100. The critically acclaimed album has accrued over 3 Billion streams, 7 Gold and Platinum RIAA certifications, has been a mainstay on the charts and landed in multiple year-end best albums lists. The album is certified Platinum by the RIAA along with his debut album, Die A Legend. His 2019 critically acclaimed Platinum debut album Die A Legend hit #1 on the Billboard Rap Chart and includes the massive 5x platinum Billboard hit “Pop Out” ft. Lil Tjay. Polo G’s artistry stems from necessity. He utilizes music as an outlet to constructively verbalize the perils he and others faced in impoverished communities focusing on real-life struggles like racial inequality, violence, and mental health, while maintaining a deep connection to his community by giving back to Chicago youth with his AAU team. Polo hosted a special benefit concert All Star Weekend called “Polo G & Friends,” which was dedicated to Chicago kids fighting depression and honored the late Juice WRLD. He also performed at the Lollapalooza x Chicago Bulls collaboration and at the 13th annual Roots Picnic in support of Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote initiative. Polo made his TV performance debut on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk series and BET Hip Hop Awards. Polo was named one of XXL’s Freshman Class in 2020, an annual roundup of hip-hop’s brightest new stars, he also secured a spot on the coveted Forbes 2021 30 Under 30 list and was named a FUSE TV Future Black History Honoree for February 2021. Now, Polo G launched his own label, ODA/Capalot Records, in partnership with Columbia Records. His authentic message, coupled with the buzz he’s accumulated in a short time, positions him as one of the top artists to watch this year while he helps craft the next crop of talent to break. Polo is currently in the studio working on his forthcoming album Hall of Fame to be released this year.
