Down A.K.A Kilo, referred to as the “Ambassador of Latin Rap” (Billy Johnson, Director of Urban Programming), is set to release his new cool in the shade single “Put Your Locs On” on Tuesday, August 4th.
“Put Your Locs On” represents serioso Latin swagger. It’s all about summer fun, and evokes images of taking a ride to the beach in your drop top, shiny baby blue low rider Chevy Impala to bask in the hot Cali sun rays, while sporting cool city locs (sunglasses).
Down A.K.A. Kilo became a household name for his hit “Lean Like a Cholo,” which sold 800,000 singles. Due to its success, Kilo’s fame skyrocketed but Down never forgets to raise up his fans, and thank them for helping him reach star status. He often jokes that, because of his fans, he no longer sleeps 5 to a bed!
Down A.K.A. Kilo has a penchant for writing tunes that instantly become the latest catch phrase. “Put Your Locs On” is predicted to be another cool in the shade Kilo killer quote. The music video features film star Tiny Lister, TV star Valente Rodriguez and Danny Trejo.
