Forming in the Bronx in 1995, Camp Lo is a duo comprised of rappers Sonny Cheeba (Salahadeen Wilds) and Geechi Suede (Saladine Wallace), both of whom are of Muslim upbringing. Their signature take on hip-hop is full of jazz and funk influences since their first hit single “Coolie High” off 1996’s Great White Hype Soundtrack. The group’s first full-length Uptown Saturday Night was released in 1997, with the project being reissued two years later on Arista Records. Their best-known single “Luchini AKA This Is It” was featured on the album—with the track being labeled as a classic and hitting the halfway mark on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Camp Lo released their sophomore effort Let’s Do It Again in 2002; five years later they returned with 2007’s Black Hollywood, produced entirely by Ski Beatz. Camp Lo then inked a deal with SRC/Universal Records, and changed their name to the Lo, based on the recommendation from DJ Mr. Cee. 2009 saw the release of two studio albums: Stone and Rob Caught on Tape and Another Heist. In 2011, they joined forces with Pete Rock to release 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s. The group’s sixth studio album Ragtime Hightimes arrived in 2015 and in 2017, Camp Lo and Ski Beatz reunited with a collection of demos and previously unreleased songs from the mid-90s, titled On the Way Uptown via Persia Records.
