Calling Springfield Illinois his hometown, and Houston Texas his playground, yet being birthed in Minnesota, Roo grew up street influenced as a young child surrounded by various negative influences. Growing up served as the base for the finishing product of Roo today. With enough arrest on drugs, and gun charges, he brings a new flavor to simply being just "street”, solidifying his authenticity.
Roo released his single “He Be On” which begins with a lively, symphonic beat that isn’t typically the norm for an introduction to a rap record! The melodious and monophonic undertones in his rap flow was highly neat and dope to hear. After the first verse of delivering bars, Roo completely surprises you with a smooth-sailing RnB vocal delivery that showcases his caliber in singing. Roo had an infectious vocal tone that flowed fluently above the melodic hook. His musicality as an artist just pops out to you while listening. You can also context that Roo is passionate about his music, his lyrics seemed to have came from a place of raw and bonafide true songwriting. Just another level to this authentic nature. Roo has a quality to him that is distinguishable on its own. A very solid wordplay with a touch of that midwestern, southern swang has the right amount of kick to his artistry. With his very own shoe-line out, this young business tycoon is somebody to be on the lookout for this 2019 year!

How has your upbringing and background impacted your style of music?
Well, I can’t speak bad on my upbringing I had it better than most I guess but my daddy was a Gangster tho so naturally its in me but I had a big part trying to keep me from it. I kinda put my self thru more than I would have went through listening to somebody lol. But I guess the hustle and the trap kind of called out to me so naturally thats where all my experiences come from. I have never worked a job longer than 3 months in my life so literally thats all I have experience wise to draw on is street shit, and I guess it comes out in many ways and forms lol.
