RIO

Born on June 23, 1985 RIO aka (Demaurio Preyear) came into this world. As a little boy at the age of two, he was always either banging on walls, pots, or pans. By the age of three his parents bought him his first musical instrument, witch was a 12 key all white Casio keyboard. Eventually he ended up taking it apart. As years went by at the young age of six young RIO attended his first concert with his father. Kool Moe Dee was his favorite rapper at the time with a hit single called wild wild west, witch was his favorite song. As time passed by RIO started watching Yo MTV Rap on Saturday mornings, that’s around the time he fell in love with music. He started writing rhymes around the age of 11, when an older cousin by the name of Demetrius aka Swisha Meat currently now known as Track Meat introduced him to beat making. Rio took his new found hobby to the extreme, trying to make beats off of a Yama ha 350 wasn’t good enough. He then linked up with a group called GCP out of Gautier Mississippi were he linked up with Senca Garry and Thomas Hardy. He made beats for the group for 3 years then as time went on he started selling his tracks to local artist. At the age of 17 RIO became a all around well known Drummer, then taught himself how to play the piano, that led him to become a wonderful church musician . RIO and Thomas lost contact Hurricane Katrina for about a year but some how linked back up. At this time RIO had emerged into a pretty nice solo artist, making his on tracks, and writing his own music. As the years went by his flow got even more crazy, he took things to the next level with alot of unreleased music! Alot of people were sleeping on him. Thomas Hardy called him up one day and said ( RIO it’s time) The two then teamed up to start there own label F.M.E Flawless Music Entertainment, it crashed they went back to the drawing bored with Seneca and Tremethius and the four came up with the name Loyal To The Music!
