Recording Artist Stakz Devtio Releases “Audible Diesel II” Album @StakzDevito

Ori­gin­ally from Addis­on, Illinois Sal­vatore Orest­ano recalls his life as a hust­ler early on in his child­hood exper­i­en­cing the loss of his moth­er and cling­ing to the street life to cope.

“I’ve always been about hust­ling and stack­ing my money, and as a young teen­ager I related all too well to Tommy Devito from “Good­fel­las” hence my known name now as Stakz Devito”

Because Stakz was con­sumed by the streets along with pent up pain he often sought out his pen and paper as an escape.  “I would go in my room, put head­phones on and just vibe out”! Writ­ing rhymes became as nat­ur­al as breath­ing in air and Stakz found him­self espe­cially drawn to the cul­ture of Hip Hop.  Although at that time in his life it was not enough to keep him out of pris­on.  Upon his release Stakz vowed to nev­er return and begin liv­ing life and pur­su­ing his dreams in the music industry. His influ­ences shif­ted from the streets to loy­al and hard­work­ing fam­ily and friends, and artists who shaped him such as N.W.A, Dre, Snoop Dog, Eminem, and Tech N9ne, and Jay Z.

“I have my own style; I’m not boxed in… I stay lyr­ic­al and put my heart into every bar I spit”

Stakz debarked into the music scene with his debut album “Aud­ible Dies­el” and soon after released the sopho­more album “Aud­ible Dies­el II”.  With much suc­cess he went on to per­form at aren­as from Flor­ida, Illinois, and Wis­con­sin dup­ing recog­ni­tion from major artists in par­tic­u­lar Niko Is, artist under Talib Kweli and Kweli’s pro­du­cer Thanks Joey.  Since then the three have col­lab­or­ated on music. In addi­tion, Stakz has opened up for Big Sean, Ces Cru, Do or Die, Jelly Roll, MGK, Katie Got Bandz, and Bubba Sparxxx.

From home­less­ness to pris­on to sold out aren­as, Stakz con­tin­ues to per­fect his craft.  To date he is fur­ther­ing his edu­ca­tion in Record­ing Arts and work­ing on upcom­ing pro­jects that will keep Hip Hop alive and real!
