Early in his career, Maino was a major label artist. Closely affiliated with fellow Brooklyn star, Lil’ Kim, Maino joined her at Atlantic Records. His start at the label would wind up being her departure from her longtime label home.
Maino would finally release one album with the label, but he, too, would also leave the label. By the time he returned with his second album, he was an independent rapper. Since his second album release, Maino has stuck to mixtape releases.
