Growing up in the inner city of Chicago’s south side, Premo $tallone from an early age developed a keen ear and sixth sense for popular songs. Spending countless hours listening to commercial radio as a kid, watching endless music videos on The Box, son to a drummer, and performing as an underground hip-hop artist throughout his teens / young adulthood has surely crafted Pream’s ears to understand and appreciate all aspects of music.
Having a knack for quality records led him into an opportunity to work for the infamous rap label Def Jam. Premo worked at Def Jam as a summer intern for their Los Angeles division back in 2018. As only an intern, he assembled his first gold record for “Valee ft. Jeremih – Womp Womp” (Kanye West G.O.O.D. Music Recording Artist). Premo’s the first intern in Def Jam history to be awarded an RIAA gold plaque in such a short span. With an A&R career seeming so promising and so bright, it was not. Premo, shortly after his efforts, was released from Def Jam and went on to create a boutique management company called “Premo Hq. Corp” consisting primarily, in his opinion, the best select group of up-and-coming producers / writers.
Premo, since then, with his producer crew, has been tied and responsible for 4 RIAA Gold Records, 1 RIAA Platinum, and 3 Billboard #1 chart positions. Premo’s credits are associated with popular recording acts such as Don Toliver, Jack Harlow, NBA Youngboy, DaniLeigh, and Jeremih. Currently Pre helps assist and oversee the legendary super producer Rodney Jerkins music enterprises on both the record label / publishing side. With the co-sign, blessing, and mentorship of Mr. Darkchild, Premo $tallone is well on his way of becoming a global, certified tastemaker.
