Romo’s unapologetic storytelling has garnered the attention of an active audience. He burst onto the scene in early 2019 with the release of the street anthem “Let’s Do It,” which has clocked in over 1M views on YouTube to date.

Born and raised in Englewood, Chicago, 18-year-old Lil Romo faced some of life’s harshest challenges early on.

With hundreds of thousands of views across YouTube and the release of his highly anticipated debut project, King Without A Crown, Lil Romo is poised for a major year.
