Biography

Rules Over Impulse, a lesson Rapx (the x is silent, and represents something extra) had to learn the hard way. ROI hails from Port Nox, Looney Island (Freeport, Long Island New York). Born and raised the early part of his youth in Far Rockaway, Queens. ROI's mother led the family's move to Long Island to try and keep her children from the negative influences of Far Rockaway. ROI was drawn to the streets like many youth. He quickly adapted to his new surroundings, herein he adopted a style and developed a persona unfamiliar to many hip hop listeners and different from many of NY hip hop artist. With a style that's braggadocios and cocky like many artists, especially NY talents, ROI has a little something x-tra. It's that x-factor that makes the "great-ones" legends. "It's important for a person to be remembered for everything they do…

Few artists hail from LI and sit amongst Hip Hop's elite. Not since the days of Rakim and Public Enemy.  As a child, like many of us, ROI's role models were hip hop artists. A biological child of his parents, but a product of hip hop all the way. ROI studied the music played in his house as a child. Before runnin' the streets music was his outlet. No genre was off limit, and with those influences ROI developed a distinct style…that something extra. His style undoubtedly stands out, and at times defies the familiar New York style of delivery and content that was perfected by Biggie & Jay and copied by too many others. No diluted tracks with bars and bars of senseless punch lines. ROI's lyrics, even when he's just braggin,' take you somewhere.

Still very early into his career, Rapx is motivated to bring back classic music. Classic because it transcends and lasts generations. Classic music like his forefathers in its honesty and relativity. "Music should have meaning. To each his own, but it should invoke emotion good, bad, happy or sad ..." ROI is a breath of fresh air in a genre that has taken major financial blows in albums sales in recent years. "All hip hop is a story, a documentary or an autobiography, exaggerated to make the story more enticing or unforgettable…" Too often an artist whole album is straight up pretend, acting, studio persona shit. ROI's lyrics are ninety percent true and ten percent extra, a percentage that he can rightfully brag is better than ninety percent of the acts out now. ROI delivers lyrics and a flow that are true to his autobiography and at the same time a story that the listeners can relate to.

At 23 ROI has already lived a life full of highs and lows that most will never witness. At his lowest point ROI learned the importance of 'rules over impulse.' Now he reveals his life in a more calculated and contagious delivery that will undoubtedly leave him amongst hip hop's elite when it's all said and done. He wouldn't boast this future though. "I'm just telling my story the way I want to, doing what I love doing. I leave legends up to peoples opinions. That's how I picked my legends. There's no scale. It's the fans…"
