A native of the South Side, hailing from the “Wild 100’s”, Bino is not a new face to the music scene in his hometown. With numerous projects under his belt with his group, 3rd Shift, as well as his own solo mixtape, his record company Yacht Boys has been making major moves since the dawn of the new millennium. Bino is the CEO of Yacht Boys, the company he founded with his partner, Boo Illa. Their goals are simple, “Yacht Boys represents getting that ticket, that ‘‘meal-ticket’ is millions of dollars and fans.” Bino’s latest movements have put him in position to work with a number of well known artist and producers (The Olympicks, Ray J, Kay Fox, Young RJ, Joe Blast, The Bake Up Boyz, MC Breed). His upcoming mixtape, The Green Light, Volume 1, is sure to be an instant classic in the streets of Chicago and worldwide.
Bino is also known as Mr. Six Six, a reference to his tall, slender frame and his intimidating stature. He also likes to refer to himself as “The Mayor” in a number of his songs, “because I make things happen in and around Chicago”. The father of one daughter, family is his motivation and he considers himself a motivational speaker as well as a rapper; his musical influences are vast ranging from Jay-Z to Frankie Beverly and Maze. Bino has a musical style that is self-described as “playa and gangsta”. He plans on bringing something to the rap game that it has been missing, “The game is missing a real playa to keep it real and kick that playa st to show nias how to be ‘playaz’ and who can also tell kids the right way to grow up; and the game is also lacking confidence. Basically the game is missing Bino. “ Maybe so, but not for long.
