Born Carlos Colon, I am here to give you the security code to my life and to let you in to take a snap shot of my very young music career. I am 22 years old, born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, on December 22, 1996. I use the entertainment brand name of Karlos Cologne. What better way to
reach a fan base than by using a name that has fragrance to it? When I was four years old, my parents moved from Puerto Rico to Winchester,
Virginia. From Virginia, my parents moved to Jamaica Queens, New York when I was 7 years old. It was there I began to listen to many Hip/Hop
Artists. That included LL Cool J, Eminem, Easy E, Tu Pac, Big Pun, and Jay Z. I never bought into the rivalry between East Coast and West Coast rappers. It was great music that inspired me no matter what part of the country they lived. I just continued to listen to the radio and watch
music videos. My life was being bounced around at the time between Virginia and New York due to family issues. My family was not stable.
When my family finally settled down in Virginia, I attended school and became interested in sports. I played running back at my junior high school and later in high school. It was official. I became a Hip/Hop Artist, by dedicating myself to this Artform when I recorded my first song at a homegrown recording studio in Virginia at age 12. Life would never be the same. Even though it was challenging to maintain a stable
environment, I still found a way to listen and develop my Hip/Hop skills by participating in battles at the local Recreation Centers or by just
grabbing a hair brush, using that as my make believe micro-
able to see firsthand what poverty was about when our family lived in Charlestown, West Virginia for a year. I had no idea people lived without water and electricity after the turn of the new millennium. Our family was compelled to adjust to a lifestyle that seemed to be out of touch with the rest of the world. I learned how to pick blackberries, hunt, and actually kill and gut snakes just to have food on the table. Many of these experiences have influenced some of the subject matters I will be rapping about in my music. I was finally able to take a deep breath
when we moved back to Virginia, away from the low standard of living in West Virginia and out of the dangerous asphalt jungles of New York.
It gave me a chance to get in touch with my gift of “free styling.” I was able to take just about any subject matter and tell a rhythm story. It felt like the drums of Puerto Rico was beating in every word I expressed. My audience in Virginia was diverse. I could not rely only on the Latino and
black community to support me. I also reached out to young whites who had reached out to the Hip/Hop community. I learned good music is universal and people of all backgrounds could understand my lyrics if I am honest about them. Time to face the world after I finished high
school in 2014. I worked odd jobs in Virginia and came out to Denver, Colorado in 2016. It was a family move with my Mom relocating there as
well. The Hip/Hop scene was not like New York, but there were enough clubs and young people like myself to keep hope that the music was discoverable right in this town. I began performing at Club 5280 and Sportswatch Bar and Grille. There I was discovered by Versatile Minds
Entertainment who wanted to sign me to a record deal. I decided I should learn more about the business side of the things. Recently, a young lady saw me perform at Sportswatch Bar and Grille and signed me to a Production Company deal with Ingenious Productions. Look for me soon as I will be releasing my first single early November of this year.
