Bino Rideaux sounds like Southern California after dark.
Through thick smoke from every angle, his melodies glow as iridescently as streetlights do, while wavy flows sway similar to palm trees. The Los Angeles singer, rapper, and producer cruises out of South Central with a nocturnal fusion of hip-hop and R&B, putting up numbers with over a quarter-of-a-billion streams and just shy of half-a-million followers. Touted as an artist to watch by Billboard, Rolling Stone, UPROXX, and many others, he sharpens this signature style on his 2022 full-length debut album and much more to come on the horizon.
Inspired by everyone from Tupac and Dom Kennedy to Nipsey Hussle and Future, he launched his own Out The Blue Records and served up his very first mixtape, Life Is Like A Movie, during 2015. Recording out of a D.I.Y. studio in his grandmother’s house, he paid homage to his fallen friend KP with “100 Days 100 Nights.” Late Los Angeles legend Nipsey Hussle took notice and tapped him for “Clarity” and “The Field” as well as 2017’s joint tape No Pressure.
Powered by “Brand New” [with BLXST], Bino’s 2019 project OUTSIDE has impressively moved over 95k album equivalent units and tallied 175 million global streams to date. He also teamed up with fellow 21st century West Coast force of nature BLXST for the critically acclaimed Sixtape  and its sequel Sixtape 2 . The latter captured #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart and broke into the Billboard Top 200—a career first for BINO.
Minting an alliance between Out The Blue and Def Jam, he only accelerated his rapid rise with “Incredible” [feat. Drakeo The Ruler], “CREEPIN” [with BlueBucksClan feat. Mustard], “No Makeup” [feat. King Combs], “Lemme Find Out” [with Roddy Ricch], and “Stop It.” Meanwhile, he packed houses coast-to-coast when he headlined the On My Soul Tour in 2021. However, everything just set the stage for him to level up once more on his upcoming debut.
In the end, Bino Rideaux is in the driver’s seat for the next era of West Coast hip-hop, and it’s undoubtedly his time now.
