On the heels of the release of his recent single, “Today’s A Good Day”, and mixtape Trapway (with Kizzl),Hardo joins Tee Grizzley on his ‘Ain’t It A Blessing Tour.’ Beginning October 4th in Seattle, WA, the Trap Illustrated rapper will hit major markets nationwide, including Los Angeles, Austin, New Orleans and Atlanta, throughout the month of October (full dates below). Hardo will support all dates on the tour.
Hardo recently dropped his official first single “Today’s A Good Day,” a vibrant radio smash, featuring Wiz Khalifa and fellow Pittsburgh native Jimmy Wopo, soaring to over 6 million streams on Spotify and 2 million on Apple Music. With the ‘Ain’t It A Blessing Tour’ and the upcoming “Today’s A Good Day” video – shot in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles – Hardo continues on his busy, self-paved path of becoming the next Pittsburgh representative to shake up hip-hop.
Hardo isn’t supposed to be standing in the upright position he holds today. He’s lived and survived enough gangster non-fiction to make a cinematic trilogy. After being released from prison in October 2012, Hardo began his transition from the crime life to the rhyme life. In January of 2013, he dropped his first underground hit, “Stressin,” (over 1M views on YouTube) a hauntingly addictive track that highlights both the author’s commanding voice and the terrible that comes with earning five star street cred. By mid-2013, Hardo’s name rang as loud in rap’s underground as it did in the underworld. ATL legend T.I. even shouted him out on his Young Thug-assisted hit “Ain’t About The Money.”
A steady grind, funded by well-invested savings, inspired record companies like Interscope Records to offer deals. Hardo and Trap Illustrated eventually teamed up with Sony’s RED MUSIC/Brooklyn Knights Entertainment.
With two recorded albums, featuring rappers like Meek Mill, 21 Savage and Dave East, and accompanying visuals completed, Hardo is ready to give rap fans two truths 1) An illegal lifestyle offers more loss than floss, and 2) His hometown raises a different breed of hustler.
