From a hostile village in Dominican Republic to upcoming music star status in the US – the story of Salas F Louidor aka. $alary, a down south rapper from Fort Lauderdale F.L is just a proof that strong spirit and hard work can break all barriers. $alary moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the age of 10. However with the absence of his father, he became the man of the house at a young age.
Having a football star status in high school, $alary received several letters of interests and scholarship offers to play football at some of the top university’s in the United States, but he was forced to refuse, because he had to help raise his brothers. Eventually $alary ended up at Portland State University, but fate would have him suffer an injury on the football field. Hopeless and desperate, music is what saved him from the point of no return.
The track “All The Time”, from the album Man of Business (M.O.B), finds $alary employing his impressive street rhymes and strutting his way through a litany of libidinous, gang-banging braggadocio. But when your track is packed with this much savvy and smooth flavor, the pride comes naturally.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first heard this but it is extremely consistent. $alary’s flow and rhyme technique is dead on and when he throws it into the mix it sounds almost seamless. The production on here is great and so is the beat. $alary keeps it gangsta on this one and adds additional flava too.
$alary is in grand style, sticking to his roots and making a song about gun toting and gangsterism, instead of making a soft pop song for the ladies. All in all, my personal opinion is $alary found his sound here and strikes almost the perfect balance. All $alary fans should own this.
