HEAD HUNTER RECORDS PRESENTS: LIL BROD
Lil Brod a.k.a. Mr. Monticello earned a reputation as one of South Carolina’s hottest up and coming rappers by grinding in the streets. The path he took to get to where he is now is a testament to his relentless drive and hustle. Growing up in his grandmother’s house with 7 brothers and sisters, Lil Brod learned what it meant to struggle at an early age. His stomping ground, Monticello, located on the rough side of Columbia, S.C., is where he started hustling to help contribute to his family. From ages 10 to 14, this street entrepreneur did whatever he could to make a buck, from cutting grass to more risky activities that would periodically cause run-ins with the law. By the 9th grade, Lil Brod had become accustomed to making his own money and decided to drop out of school to pursue opportunities that would eventually lead to his first criminal charge at the age of 15.
Lil Brod, the persistent hustler, had 7 mixtapes under his belt by the time he recorded “Sometimes I.” And although he averaged over 5,000 units through hand to hand selling, “Do U Mind,” is considered his break out track by critics. “Do U Mind” is one of those songs that is both a radio smash and club banger, just an undeniable record. Brod is a talented artist that makes good music and has a chance to make it in the music industry,” stated Randy Roper, Ozone Magazine Music Editor and AllHipHop.com writer.
