Coming out of Cincinnati, Ohio, rapper Lantana turned his motto into a hit single when "All Hustle, No Luck" dropped in 2013. Marc Waldon became Lantana around 2011, but a short stint in jail put his dream on hold for a few months. Released from prison with renewed focus, Lantana dropped his signature track on the 2012 mixtape Lantana On His Way, a release that caught the attention of Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond, head of the RoyalDream Music Group. Lantana ended the year with five Ohio Hip-Hop Award nominations and a contract with the RCA imprint PoloGrounds. The label gave his "All Hustle, No Luck" single an official release in 2013. ~ David Jeffries
