Lailo, Born LaiShawn LaBorde is an American Recording Artist born and raised in both Queens and Long Island NY. Growing up in the Ravenswood Houses of Long Island City, then later moving to Central Islip, afforded Lailo the opportunity to enroll in Boces Tech School and pursue music through an audio production class. At the age of 14, Lailo was featured alongside Eric Sermon of EPMD on a song titled "Paradise" by Troy S.L.U.G.S
After Graduating HS in '05 Lailo further pursued his music career and formed his own Record Label "NewBreed Recordz". Since the start of NewBreed Recordz, Lailo has released the following Projects "Hard Work N Dedication", "For What its Worth", "Lailo Presents NewBreed" ,"Who is Lailo Vol.1" Hosted by DJ SuperStar Jay, and The “WHOisLAILO” EP.
Joining the United States Air Force in 2011 gave Lailo more exposure and content to write about. Seeing different Lifestyles across the world has opened his eyes and views on things that someone who hasn't traveled may not get by just watching TV. This experience also inspired the Novel "From Rhymes to Reveille" - an auto-biography of the experience going through Basic Military Training, which has no release date at this time.
In April 2014, Lailo Has Released his 1st EP "WHOisLAILO" Now available on iTunes, Google Music Store, Amazon, Rhapsody, Spotify and more. The EP is a re-introduction to Lailo, and shows his development as an artist. Self Managed, Lailo books his own shows, and is set to go on an Open Mic Tour this summer.
