Though we're just days into the new year, veteran Cincinnati Hip Hop artist Santino Corleon is already having a helluva 2020.
If you've seen the commercials for the TV show Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time — the game show's prime-time tournament on ABC featuring its greatest champions — you've heard Corleon. His song "GOAT" is featured.
"GOAT" will be available later this month, part of a new record deal Corleon announced on social media just last week. Corleon is one of the first singings to 83 Sound, the label founded by producer Cook Classics (whose work includes hits like Panic! at the Disco's "High Hopes" and Ava Max's "Sweet But Psycho") and Platinum-selling Pop artist and songwriter Outasight.
"Wrap your brain around the fact that last Saturday I signed a record deal at 38 YEARS OLD!!," Corelon wrote on Facebook last week. "After being told for YEARS I was 'too old to be rapping' either to my face but mostly behind my back (yes I knew). Or to get a job, that I might wanna think about giving this up. I have single handedly changed what you call 'rules.'
"If I’m not an indication that you literally can do ANYTHING you set your mind to and AGE HAS NEVER BEEN A FACTOR I don’t know what is. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS. I did and look what just happened."
Corleon says that "GOAT" will be available on all digital platforms Jan. 31. He's working on other material with Cook Classics and Outasight, according to the label site. Check out his previous work on Spotify and YouTube. And check out his artist page at 83sound.com here for more updates.
