About Albee Al
Albert Robinson, known to everyone as AlBee Al “The Gladiator”, was born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. Raised in the Marion Projects in Jersey City, Al grew up in a poverty strickened environment. At the age of 10, AlBee Al knew he wanted to pursue music as a full time career. “Music is in my blood. My father was an old school cat that was running around with artists such as Doug E. Fresh and Biz Markie. My dad was a part of a group called Sweet Slick and Slide and their movement in Hip-Hop was huge. Though my Dad was based out of Jersey City, he and his group members where always in New York. My dad died when I was four years old. His stage name was also AlBeeAl”, states Al.
AlbeeAl’s debut single, “Pay Me Up Front” is an undeniable hit. “The song is about how business is business. Don’t play with my money. It is about the grind and the struggle. Everybody is saying they are rich and famous. I am still in the projects. I want to get this money so I can resolve a lot of issues my loved ones are facing”.
Getting his feet wet on the performance stage, AlBeeAl has opened up for established acts such as PNB Rock, YFNLucci, OT Genesis, and more. “I am just the voice of the struggle. I am a hood jounalist. I am a motivational speaker for those who think the same as me in the hood”.
In his spare time, AlBeeAl enjoys spending time with family. “ I am a momma’s boy. I do everything for my mother. This is my mother’s dream as well. I am programmed for family. I am her robot”.
