From being in a group that was the late 00s equivalent of The Migos to overcoming serving time, Really Rio will not quit.

Really Rio Goes For The Music Industry

Bouncing back from legal issues and moving forward in life is rough. Could you do it? Starting over is harder than it seems in any situation, but what about those who are forced to have gaps in their life? Independent artist, Really Rio is taking another shot at music as a solo artist over a decade later.


Really Rio & His Old Group

Really Rio (real name is Mario) is a performer and rapper from the small town of Richmond, California. With less than great role models surrounding him in his youth, Mario found himself in trouble, forcing him to bounce around schools. Fortunately, Mario found some like minds that wanted to pursue music.

Similar to the former rap group, The Migos, the group ‘Da 3for1 Deal’ was formed around their love for making trap/ street rap in the late 2000s. With the opportunity to tour across the United States, and have their music known across the world, the group had its success. According to Really Rio, Da 3for1 Deal was close to closing a deal with a major record label, but the deal was not exactly what they wanted. The group never had the chance to pursue another chance as Really Rio faced trouble with the law.


Trouble With The Law  and Music Career

According to reports, Really Rio faced time from 2009 through 2013 due to unlawful infractions. Halting his career for nearly four years. Part of the consequence Rio faced did not only affect him but his group members as well.

From doing a 25-show tour without having a mixtape and debuting their first tape at 15,000 downloads to being forced to spit up, Rio’s legal issues were too much.
