About Blackwood DMV

Early life experiences in the late 80’s and early 90’s were California, Compton style. Childhood was smack in the middle of the two strongest rival gang loyalties in the game. Blue and red colors signifying the Crips and Bloods, ruled the neighborhood around his street, Poinsettia Ave.

Family was Mom and Aunt and music was a part of daily life. Mom sang at cabarets with local and national stars. Her strength in life and her determination to win placed a special drive toward greatness in Rio and his younger sister that, to this day, inspires his grind for the music scene. In 2008, the family suffered a blow when Rio’s aunt died unexpectently.

Having lived in the DMV during adolescence and currently working his music within these locations now, Blackwood has built a following of fans around the area that love his sound and thrive off the vibe of his talent.

Blackwood’s rap verse can be described as a real artist take on giving voice to the reality of real.Blackwood takes societal dissonance breed from the rebellion of ghetto reality and transforms it with lyrical wordplay into beat based songs that live to be heard.

Blackwood brings truth and talent to the rap game. No stranger to either the work or the grind of music as a hustle hard game. His rap career comes full scale with a debut mixtape set for September 2011. His rap features the truths the record companies are too blind to say. Rap companies don’t live here. Rap companies have never been here. Rap companies never come where Blackwood has been.

For rap keep your 99 cents or $1.29, itunes is fine but it’s not real. Instead remember the name Blackwood, then download his rap like spoken gospel to music- truth to the game not to the establishment.

His raps will be raw uncut versions of reality experiences from the streets and life that is shouts beyond the loud beat of a bass.
