|I Put It Down|
If your reading this you probably already know a little about the artist known as
"LO$ BABY" or "LO$." (By the way the dollar sign is pronounced as an "S" to solve some confusion) This bio will let you know a little more about the artist and the person. First off, let's talk about the origin of his name. It rooted from his birth given name "Karlos Franklin" and evolved to "LOS" as his childhood friends nicknamed him. Instead of coming up with elaborate rap name, the artist decided to go with the name that he was known on the street by. I know your thinking where does the dollar sign come in at? The artist decided "LOS" written looked a little plain, so he changed the "S" to a dollar sign (besides, who doesn't like money?). "BABY" got attached to the artist's name by coincidence, when friends asked what his rap name was going to be. He replied " It's just LOS, baby," from his habit of calling everyone "Baby" it got attached to his name (No, "Lil wayne" or "Weezy f. baby" had nothing to do with it.). The artist is a native of Panama City,FL but he also represents his childhood neighborhood of Lynn Haven or "The Haven/L.H." as he calls it. The artist genre is hip hop/rap and most say his style sounds like a mix between "Notorious B.I.G." and " T.I." with creativity of "Lil Wayne" He is a down south rapper with up north appeal to him.
