Bio

Rodrick Jermaine Jones, better known by his stage moniker R.I.P Thuggery, is a St. Louis, Mo
born rap artist who founded Deadline LLC. His music is influenced by hip hop luminaries Tupac Shakur, Tech N9ne, Scarface, Brotha Lynch Hung and 50 Cent. Taking from them the ability to ride a beat and their love for storytelling with an unbridled rigor. His lyrics are shaped by his early life experiences in St. Louis. His family's decision to move to Chicago Heights, IL could potentially be the reason he is alive today and laid the foundation for his evolving styles in music.

Feeling the need to be heard, R.I.P released his first album No Sleep Til Heaven on 10/10/11 to
commemorate the death of his grandmother who passed on that date the year prior. The album
did surprisingly well with nearly no promotion or buzz. But his visit with Slip-N-Slide changed
his outlook on business and the branding of himself forever. The words from the A&R were
Your music is hard as a mutha***** but you dont have any buzz. If this was 5 years ago I
could get you signed right now. Even though other opportunities presented themselves R.I.P
had directed his attention on his next project Sin-E-Matic and building his company as an multimedia powerhouse. Being the creative being that is R.I.P., thinking out of the box, he decided to allow the people to become involved in the creative process of the album to build his buzz. The I Record Music series for the album Sin-E-Matic was brought to life and has over 800,000 views and over 2,000+ subscribers in a months time. R.I.P Thuggery's vision for a dormant industry spans over more than just music. He hopes to revitalize rap while making the I Record Music series internationally known and build his music production company.
