Discovered while singing on the bus, Bobby Valentino first made his mark as the lead singer in the hit teen group, Mista. As a new found member of the Organized Noise Family, Bobby learned firsthand how great music was made from icons such as Outkast, TLC, and Goodie Mob. In 1996 the group released their self-titled debut album and produced chart topping single, "Blackberry Molasses," which still remains a classic to this day. A second unreleased album was recorded with hit makers, Tim & Bob and Delite, but creative differences split the group. Shortly thereafter, Valentino decided to return to his studies and enrolled as a communications major at Clark Atlanta University. While in school, Valentino continued to record in his free time in hopes of one day returning to the stage.[1] He lived with his cousin Kayon Roberts in Detroit Michigan. After earning his degree in 2004, Valentino returned to the studio full time.

Immediately impressed by his talents, Ludacris and his business partner, Chaka Zulu (president of DTP) signed Valentino as the first R&B artist on Disturbing Tha Peace Records. Soon after, Valentino was re-introduced to the world as a solo artist and featured on the hit single, "Pimpin All Over The World" off of Ludacris' multi-platinum selling album "The Red Light District" in 2004.[2] OutKast is a Grammy award winning American hip hop duo based out of East Point, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. ...
