Early Life

Maino, whose real name is Jermaine Coleman, was born on August 30, 1973 in New York City. As a young adult in the early 1990s, he was part of a drug-related robbing and kidnapping plot that resulted in him serving a decade-long prison sentence. It was during his incarceration that he started rapping to occupy himself and keep his spirits up.

Career Beginnings

Inspired by some of the top Brooklyn rappers of all time, including Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, Maino immediately launched his own record label, Hustle Hard Entertainment, upon his release from prison in 2003. He went on to release numerous mixtapes on the label, with the first being 2005's "Real Recognize Real." Following that were "King of the City," "The Hand of God," "Brooklyn House, Pt. 1," "Tuck Ya Chain In," and "Maino is the Future."

In 2007, Maino signed himself and his Hustled Hard label to Atlantic Records. He subsequently began work on his debut studio album, "If Tomorrow Comes…," which came out in 2009 and entered the Billboard 200 at number 25. Prior to the release of the album, he put out his debut commercial single, "Hi Hater," which reached number 16 on the Hot Rap Songs chart. Maino followed that with the single "All the Above," featuring T-Pain, which made it onto the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 39. A third single entitled "Million Bucks" was also released. In early 2010, Maino released the EP "Unstoppable" exclusively through iTunes. Later in the year, he released the mixtape "The Art of War."

His second studio album, "The Day After Tomorrow," came out in early 2012; it included the singles "Let it Fly," featuring Roscoe Dash, and "That Could Be Us," featuring Robbie Nova. Maino's other 2012 releases were the mixtapes "I Am Who I Am" and "The Mafia," the latter a collaboration with the Black Flag Mafia.

After going a year without any major releases, Maino returned in 2014 with the mixtape "K.O.B.," which was followed by the EP sequel "K.O.B. 2." He released another sequel, the mixtape "K.O.B. 3," on August 11, 2015. Early the next month, Maino released the mixtape "Maino Madness."
