“Absoloot” is not just a recording artist and a powerful speaker, he is also a self-made social media professional. Using Myspace back in 2005 to promote himself and his record label “As I Am Records,” Absoloot’s popularity grew quickly as he received over 3.1 million views and garnered over 50,000 fans. His early success was recognized by VIO Mobile as he was offered a ring tone deal with sales over 150,000 digital downloads in 35 different countries!
Absoloot licensed 7 songs to Don King on two separate occasions, all of which were to be used for the promotion of two high profile fights in 2006, including James Toney vs Samuel Peters. He was invited to attend the 2009 Grammy’s for his album “My Way,” and was even recognized by The BMA’s (Billboard Music Awards) for his songwriting accomplishments for his hit track “1031.” Two songs from the “My Way” album were selected by Sony for usage in PlayStation video games. In the same year Absoloot won runner up in the International Songwriting Competition with an incredible ranking of 4th out of 1,500!
Absoloot’s list of accomplishments continued to expand when in 2012, The Huffington Post featured the video for “99 Percent” as the theme song for the “Occupy Wall Street Movement”. The videos for “99 Percent” and “Watch Your Words received 1st place awards in monthly competitions for JeeJuh.com, an online production company. Absoloot placed 2nd for his track “They Don’t Hear Me” with Jee Juh as well. He has a top selling album, an EP and 2 singles.
Absoloot’s campaign to challenge the power and corruption within the banking industry gives millions of middle class Americans hope as a voice is speaking up for them. He has received rave reviews for the release of his critically acclaimed album “Banksters.” The key purpose of the album was to educate and inspire our youth to learn about our economy in a way that they can understand. Absoloot was able to attain this by making a difference with his words as a conduit through his lyrics in a non-violent and non-explicit manner. He doesn’t need to curse or speak with hate in order for people to understand the positive message he is sending us!
Paying it forward has been instrumental in Absoloot’s success. He prides himself on making the community his foundation. Absoloot has partnered with Teachers, Mayors, Politicians, Veterans, Mom & Pop shops and several Youth Mentoring programs to help make our county a better place to live in. He has separated himself from the rest of the industry in an unorthodox way. A portion of every release under “As I Am Records” has gone back to help several charities. Absoloot partnered with Tropical Financial Credit Union to help the youth of America become financially independent for the future. Instead of following his predecessors, Absoloot has become a trail blazer for positive Hip-Hop lyrics.
Absoloot is a rare man in the sense that he is authentic. He says what he means and he does what he says. Whether he’s entertaining our youth in schools or doing a Library Tour to spread his message in the local community, you can always bet that he’s speaking the truth. He’s not just a voice, but also a brain and tireless worker whose goal is to spread his positive message to as many people as he can reach!
