Miami’s music scene has brought hip hop some of its brightest stars. With the path blazed by artists like Rick Ross and Flo Rida, new artist Billy Blue is hoping to bring that same fire to the game – and he has a story to tell. His machine gun flow mixed with his gritty – and very real lyrics – make him a fortified contender to keep the fire burning in the South.
Born Pedritho Dorsonne in New Rochelle, NY to Haitian immigrants, Billy Blue’s stage name came from his many trials and tribulations while growing up. His life story sounds more like a movie script than real life; the promising artist signed to Interscope through a joint venture with Poe Boy Entertainment, Akon’s Konvict Music and Timbaland’s Mosely Music Group has lived a dangerously fast and mostly tragic lifestyle. In fact, he would say music saved his life.
