#DXCLUSIVE: Dark Lo Delivers Title Track For “American Made” Album

Published

on

Philadelphia native Dark Lo spent his formative years going in and out of prison, but once he met fellow Philly rapper AR-AB, he switched directions and started getting heavily into Hip Hop.

Over the past several years, Lo has dropped multiple albums, including The Crook, SK Tales, Darkaveli, and Ron Harvey Jr. 

Fast-forward to 2019 and the now seasoned MC is back with a new single “American Made,” which serves as the title track of his forthcoming album and follow-up to “Ripped Apart” featuring Benny The Butcher. The concept is based on a rough experience Lo had as a kid.

“When I was 11 or 12, a friend of mine was killed by gunfire that wasn’t meant for him,” Lo tells HipHopDX. “When my classmates and I cried in class the next day and asked God why, our teacher made a statement to us and told us we were ‘American Made’ — and there wasn’t much we could do about it, because our slave masters trained us to hate each other for centuries.

“The teacher then referred us to a book about the Willie Lynch [white slave owner] speech and at a very young age, I understood that my people had been stripped of everything — our culture, our last names, and so much more. That makes us ‘American Made.’”

The American Made album is expected to arrive on October 4. Pre-orders are available here.
