Bio

Ron “B-Stinger” Savage was raised in The Bronx section of Castle Hill. As a teen, he attended Allied E. Stevenson High School and finished with his GED at the age of 18. Intrigued with music at a very young age, Ron and his sister would attend functions in their local park-as their parents would not allow them to go outside of their neighborhood. As the two matured more, they were then able to accompany music notables DJ Jazzy J and Bam, and from there, they fell in love with Hip-Hop. So in awe of this new developing culture called Hip-Hop, Ron and his sister hung out with members of the Zulu Nation. The Zulu Nation is an organization that stands for peace, love, unity and having fun. It is all about music and break dancing. It is about the culture of Hip-Hop. After seeing DJ’s spinning at his local park, Ron wanted to be down. “I became a member of the Zulu Nation in 1979 (Age 14) and went by the name B-Stinger. Originally, I was called Ronald B, but other members saw B-Stinger as the more fitting nickname. I was truly a bee because I always tried to sting the ladies (get their attention) back in the day like a bee, so that’s how I got the name”, recalls Savage. Ronald was among the main chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation Council from The Bronx River Houses in New York City. Later in the late 1980's, B-Stinger -aka- Ronald Savage worked for DJ Jazzy Jay and Rocky Bucano at Strong City Records/MCA where he became known as a “go-getter” in the music industry. After three years, BStinger left Strong City Records to work for Dick Scott Entertainment where he handled the careers as an Artist Liaison for Snap ( I Got The Power), Show Biz & A.G. (Soul Clap), and Doug E. Fresh (Busting Out) just to name a few. When Scott went on to manage Boyz II Men and New Kids On The Block, he focused only on those acts, In 1990 while working with the rap pop group SNAP Ronald "Bee-Stinger" Savage carved the term Six elements of the Hip Hop Movement. The Six Elements Of The Hip Hop Movement are: Consciousness Awareness, Civil Rights Awareness, Activism Awareness, Justice, Political Awareness, Community Awareness. Savage’s services were no longer needed after Dick Scott closed down. This was also due to a decline in sales. Progressing, he then managed a 3-guy R&B Group called Motif (London/PayDay/Polygram Records). In 1993, he helped them market and promote their debut album, “More Than Magic”. The group’s single featuring Positive K called “You Told Me", did extremely well on the charts. They opened frequently for several established acts of this era like acts such as H-Town. For two years, Ronald would grind it out and endure the highs and lows of the industry. Between the music industry’s constant changes and the juggle of emotional issues stemming from his teen years, he became discouraged and left entertainment all together. Moving on, . In 2006, Ron Savage was elected to the New York State Democrat Committee. In 2009 he became the VP for Former NYS Assemblyman Peter M. Rivera's Community Democratic Club adding on to his political growth. With his position, Ron was provided the opportunity to speak on the floor three times at the New York State Democratic Convention where he was able to introduce resolutions to the floor. In 2012, In 2014, Ron Savage fell into a deep depression. For years, he had been suppressing something that would come back and haunt him mentally to an unusual extent. What was it? He had been sexually molested by Hip-Hop’s very own, DJ Afrika Bambaataa. This violation had taken a toll on Ron as an adult. Seeking help, his counselor then advised him to write down his story, thoughts, and feelings. Those journal entries would later become a future New York Times Best Seller called, IMPULSES, URGES, AND FANTASIES. Available for purchase on Amazon, Barns & Noble Ronald gives an account of how much Hip-Hop and his molestation played pivotal parts of his developing young life and his present life. Though the book was self-published in 2014, it is now garnering worldwide media attention.  Ron Savage after approx. 20 years has stepped back into the Hip Hop game one last time with his first new release single “Hip Hop Movement Anthem”, Savage is not raping on the single, the single is a beat /sample track for the clubs and real hip hop party heads, Ron Savage sampled his voice onto the record this is the official Hip Hop Movement Anthem being that Ron Savage has trademarked Hip Hop Movement and officially owns the brand. Ron is hoping his love for hip-hop keeps him in the game for years to come.
