Roderick Leak a.k.a DOLO PACINO serves as Chief Executive Officer of his record label, GARODRO RECORDS and his production company, 5th Avenue Productions. He began these companies in July of 2002, and since then has never looked back. In addition to his position as a music producer, DOLO is an accomplished Holy Hip Hop Artist who has won several “open-mic” contests and been featured on radio.
Some of DOLO'S accomplishments include charting on several websites and in particular charting the number 10 downloaded song on now defunct mp3.com. He also won numerous awards on Garageband.com Best production & Track of the day to name a few. DOLO also released his single "Drop Bombs" on D.J. Tony T's Mixtape and, more recently, FLOSS-A-LOT on D.J. Marc X's New Mixtape. The single also created a huge buzz and DOLO was featured on several N.J. & N.C. radio stations such as "Foxy 99.1 FM" and "The Vibe 104.5 FM Mixshow."
DOLO has also won the M.C. Freestyle Battle on 104.5 FM and was featured in a live "Independent Spotlight" segment with Big Ray for 99.1 FM where he talked about his goals and his blossoming career. Also well educated and bi-lingual, DOLO earned his B.S. in Biology from Fayetteville State University and Masters of Education from National University.
Nevertheless, Many have reached out for his production expertise in television and film including films by Larry and Shira Dillon where he scored and acted in "Crystal". Next, DOLO is currently producing tracks for The GARODRO RECORDS Compilation Vol.1 with up and coming artists including label mate D’Ription and even though he has a hectic schedule he's always had time to reach out and support "at-risk" youth in the inner city of Los Angeles, Houston and Las Vegas.
D.J. Tony T of "Midnight Express" sums up DOLO'S drive and dedication best by saying, "DOLO is going to take the entertainment world by storm! He raps in English and in Spanish, produces all his own material, and is humble, respectful and positive. He has what it takes to make it happen!"
