Bio

What do you get when you combine one mic with an extrordinary raw lyricist that continues to redefine and push the boundaries of creativity in rap music? One name: ROME. His lyrics present a mature and meaningful chronicle of missed opportunities, self discovery, and universal truths that have impacted him and those in his life. "Rome is a raw talent that's left of center and posesses a unique style and perspective", say's Jim Gleason of VMA Records. What's most intriguing when first hearing Rome is that you know you've just been exposed to a unique artist with a very distinct sound and style that demands your attention. He towers over most with his statuesque tall muscular frame and on stage his tattoed colorful artwork that he proudly displays is a true depiction of a great warrior of the past, present, and future. He's powered by raw emotion, fueled by passion, and driven by a clearly defined vision.
Rome is new to the rap scene but has all the intentions of making his name well known throughout to be exposed to the world. His debut cd is scheduled to be self released in the fall of 2005 entitled, " When in Rome." A true journeyman at heart, Rome has lived in numerous states and countries and has incorporated those living experiences in his body of work. " I have never had a hood to call my own," says Rome. I have never lived in one place long enough to call home." My living conditions and sense for change and survival have dictated my journey through life."
When asked about the life that he has lead, the most revealing insight into his persona is that there was no one who was influential in his upbringing. Rome proclaims that he is a self taught and self made man with the guidance of God at an early age. His trials and tribulations have at last found an outlet. For Rome, the focus is to create a body of work that is timeless and deliver that body of work with groundbreaking intentions to his fans. His music is equal parts raw, soulful, rebellious, and thought provoking. He has stressed that it is critical to create subject matter that clearly moves him first and foremost. " I am my worst critic," says Rome. It's got to feel right, down to every verse. "As for the creative process, I reach within myself and at times my thoughts can be universal, playful, surreal,raw, sexual, violent, or explicit in nature." One things for sure, you will hear him loud and clear. " There's only room for heavyweights in the Rap Game. I clearly understand the concept." Believe me, Rome is pound for pound a true heavyweight.
