A HIP-HOP artist from Kilkenny who’s hoping to make it big in Los Angeles has released his latest song.

Originally known as Shane Moriarty, Outlaw Cabo was born and raised in Loughboy, and in 2003 he left everything he knew, friends and family, to go to Los Angeles and pursue his dreams. He landed in California not knowing a single soul but was determined to make his mark.

Determination and blessings lead Cabo to be featured on the debut solo album of Napoleon, of 2Pac’s Outlawz, after just a month and a half of landing in the US. Cabo is now a member of 2Pac’s family, The Outlawz, making him the first and only Irish person in 2Pac’s Outlaw family.

Cabo has featured on songs and albums with such artists as Muszamil, Mopreme Shakur, The Outlawz, Badazz of LBC, Big Syke, Napoleon, Hassachi Rydah, Val Young, as well as working with Quincy ‘QD3’ Jones and the late great Johnny J, producer of over 200 of 2Pac’s tracks. Cabo continues to feature on Outlawz projects as well as working on his debut solo album and career.

Cabo’s new song, Soothe Ur Pain, is being aired on certain radio stations worldwide and such Irish stations as Beat FM and iRadio. The video is on YouTube here.
