Both Sol and Sam Lachow are two of hip-hop’s most exciting and entertaining underground mainstays. With two distinguished solo careers under their respective belts, they’ve built loyal and proud followings from the ground up. Rocking shows and writing music true to themselves, they’ve continued to grow as artists and humans and now, the two emerald city emcees have teamed up for a co-headlining tour you don’t want to miss!

---------------------------------

Even in the moments of critical acclaim, Sol has stayed true to his name and avoided the thirst trappings of fame. Prior to pre-teen sports teams and pubescent wet dreams he was in the recording studio getting carpool pickups at Midnight. He’s not from the roughest part of the world’s most glamorous city. He wasn’t winning rap battles in front of bodegas. He was just a Haitian-American kid with musical melody at a molecular level and an ease about him in the presence of the opposite sex.

With age, he found his stage. There were some EPs that made the rounds, airplay on syndicated radio and a few festivals you might have heard of. But when the hand on Malcolm Gladwell’s wristwatch struck 10,000 he became No. 1 on the US iTunes hip-hop chart. His independent release of “Yours Truly” clocked No. 4 on the hip-hop charts globally; his SoundCloud streams reached eight figures. All the while he was graduating college Magna Cum Laude despite spending more on reefer than textbooks. All of a sudden poof… he dipped to travel the world and left the industry executives going straight to voicemail.

He embarked on the prestigious Bonderman Fellowship in 2012 making moves to Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, India, Brazil, Colombia, Trinidad & Tobago, and back to Haiti with nothing but a carry-on bag. His passport has more stamps than a flight attendant for Turkish Airlines. Using the field notes on his continental drift as the recipe for his subsequent 2013 project “Eyes Open” and later building upon that effort for another full-length independent release: “The Headspace Traveler,” in 2016 which included a 22-city U.S. tour. Before you could refresh your browser he was back in Haiti shooting film photos and wearing Japanese track pants you’ve never heard of, all while watching global football playing on satellite TVs. Then in 2019, he dropped back in to share the new album titled Soon Enough and touring across Europe for the first time.
