Bio

“To go where you’ve never gone before…you have to do what you’ve never done before” -Romey

It’s hard to stand out in a city full of stars but Romey is confident he’s got what it takes to shine with the best of them. Like his platinum Chi-town counterparts Kanye West, Twista and Common, Romey is destined to join his city’s rap elite.
Born and raised in the gang-infested neighborhood known as the Wild Hundreds, Romey grew up turning the negative images around him into moving street narratives. As a kid, it was nearly impossible for him to escape the evil trappings of his hood “I’m gang affiliated”, he explains. “Everybody around me was in a gang so I really didn’t have a choice.”

With his whole city behind him, the young MC is ready to make the leap from a regional success to a nationwide contender. He’s aligned himself with some of the country’s most influential mixtape and radio DJs, who have been spreading his words like the gospel. There couldn’t be a better time for the self titled Michael Jordan of the rap game to redirect rap back to a time when lyrics outweighed hooks and rappers focused on the power of their words rather than their material value.

“I’m that voice for the hustlers”, explains the 6’7 rhyme pusher who hails from Chi-City’s notorious Southside section. “There’s a whole bunch of different styles in Chicago that cater to all types of people. Like Kanye, he speaks to the average person, thugs, backpackers, the ladies and we love and embrace him for that. Common speaks for the conscious listeners. Then there’s a new generation of rappers like Bump J, Sly Polaroid and myself that speak to the streets. Were all different, but its all Chicago. We all get that love.”

Romey’s life at home wasn’t very different than what he saw outside. His mother was a well-known hustler in and around their Roseland neighborhood for 20 years and she had no problem teaching her oldest son. “I used to steal drugs from her and sell em”, remembers Romey. “At 11 I was making like $200 or $300 dollars a day.” But before he finished junior high, Romey’s mom was sentenced to four years in prison. “I went from having everything right along with my mother to her going to prison.”

Romey has aligned himself with Chicago’s top mixtape suppliers, DJ Pharris, DJ V Dub who have been continuously leaking his records directly to the street. Outside of the Midwest, rap fiends have recently gotten a huge dose of Romey thanks to his DJ Sickamore hosted CD/DVD, “The Chicago Takeover”. Backed by the same mixtape DJ turned A&R that helped polish and present underground MCs Saigon and True-Life to the masses, Sickamore’s stamp is a huge feat for rapper outside of New York City. When I met Sickamore, he sat and listened to like 10 of my joints straight, recalls Romey. He was just like, “Yo, you’re crazy, you sound incredible! I wanna work with you.”

With some of the industry’s top tastemakers cosigning, Romey is ready to spread his word like the gospel; and, unlike most rap rookies that have their sites set of merely catching the next short-lived buzz single. Romey is focused on the qualities only the greatest MCs posses. His knack for recreating his own hard knock life on record makes him a rarity in an era littered with hip-pop acts whose catchy hooks are their biggest claims to fame. It wont be long before Romey solidifies his place in Chicago’s already illustrious lineup, proving his voice is exactly what the games been missing.
