Maino, born in Brooklyn, NY launched his independent record label ‘Hustle Hard Entertainment’ back in 2003. Upon the launching of Hustle Hard, Maino had built  his name from the ground up and eventually landed his first major record deal with Universal in 2005. Although he was signed to Universal, it wasn’t until 2007 when he left the label and signed with Atlantic in 2008 that he finally put out his debut album, ‘If Tomorrow Comes…’ with lead single ‘Hi Haters’.

Maino then released a EP in 2010 titled ‘Unstoppable’ and began working on his follow up album ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ which released in 2011.

Maino has since been working on numerous mixtapes from King Of Brooklyn 1 and K.O.B 2 to working and building up his ‘Hustle Hard’ label with acts like Push Montana, Hustle Hard Mouse and more.
