Still working on that hot first release.



Ronald Allen Williams, better known by his stage name Ron.D was born on July 9,1986. Born on the East side of Detroit but raised on the West side, Ron. D was the product of a single mother household by his loving mother Johnny Williams. He was the youngest of 4 children. His 2 older sisters, Colina and Tana along with his older brother Reese were very influential to him during his upbringing. Tana and Reese now watch over him from heaven. 
At the age of 14, Ron. D started rapping after being inspired by his older brother and mentor Reese as well as Chicago rapper J. Seuss. In 2001 Ron.D took his passion for rap further and formed a rap group with 4 of his childhood friends called "Donizm". Donizm went on to release two mixtapes, "Get Doe (2003)" & "Dead Presidents (2004)". The group disassembled shortly after. If life in Detroit couldn't get any worse, Ron.D's biggest influence, his big brother Reese, passed away. Feeling like he couldn't move on Ron. D dropped out of school and soon after moved to Atlanta in 2005.
While in Atlanta, Ron.D hooked up with artists from all over the United States to form the rap group "The Empire". The Empire released two mixtapes "We don't strike back we strike first (2005)" & "Hate it or Love it (2006)". After having some personal and managerial issues with The Empire Ron.D, returned to Detroit in 2007 with little to no hope in pursuing a musical career.
In 2011, an almost 4 year break from music, Ron.D was ready to jump back in and give rapping all he had; but this time he would do it solo. He teamed up with the legendary producer/engineer P. Gruv and became a part of the J Dilla "the Rebirth of Detroit" project. With this new relationship Ron. D decided that he would either tackle the rap game head on or he would never touch the mic again. This new lease on life birthed his highly anticipated debut solo mix tape "Now or Neva." 
With the success of “Now or Neva”, it was only natural for Ron. D to give his fans more of his life story. In July 2012, Ron. D released his sophomore solo mixtape “You Can’t Deny Me.” The mixtape highlighted his talents and as the title implies, his talent is truly undeniable. On this mixtape he featured artists Ellie Sandiego, Mik Shiest and Samara Naier. He also worked with the legendary DJ Dez Andres and Boneus as well as producers Sheefy Mcfly, Geno XO and DJ Sicari. 
It is evident that Ron.D is serious about his craft. He breathes life into every track. With time and diligence, Ron.D will be a household name; a natural talent to go down in history as one of the realest mc’s to come out of Detroit.
