Sol always felt like a low-key Haitian-American kid, who stayed true to his name and avoided the thirst trappings of fame even in the moments of critical acclaim. In the beginning there were some EPs that made the rounds, and when he had put in his 10,000 hours, it happened. He became No. 1 on the US iTunes hip-hop chart, No. 4 globally with the 2012 masterwork Yours Truly. His SoundCloud streams shot to eight figures, then poof… he dipped and left the industry executives going straight to voicemail. He had been awarded the Bonderman Fellowship and left the country so to travel the far reaches of civilization with nothing but a carry-on bag. Africa, India, South America, back home to Haiti. Sol’s field notes became the project Eyes Open. Sol followed that with another four-course musical meal: The Headspace Traveler, in 2016 which included a headlining 22-city U.S. tour. Before you could refresh your browser he was back in the Caribbean watching global football on satellite TVs. In 2019, came the full length album Soon Enough, and then during the pandemic Sol once again went against the grain by releasing his project SUPPLY PACK exclusively in the physical form. A new Sol album will be released in mid-2023.
