After releasing his 10 Summers mixtape and a steady string of singles this summer, Pittsburgh's Mario Dones returns with his first full length album, Black Watermelon.
"I'm really at a loss for words right now. For as long as I can remember I've been preparing to release what is now my debut album, Black Watermelon. When I first decided that I wanted to take my music seriously and create an album, I couldn't have imagined it would have taken me on this type of journey. Black Watermelon is the beginning of my story - my foundation. It's the first part of me that I'm sharing with the world."
