Never intended to be an artist he unexpectedly joined the movement of hip-hop as a rapper in 1993 because he got introduced to a producer who was a friend of his brother. Soon developed interest for producing and went for it. This “One Man Band” from The Netherlands is the full package. Listening to groups like Public Enemy, BDP, EPMD, Dr, Dre & Snoop. Even though Tha Rookie is from The Netherlands he automatically wrote English lyrics rather than Dutch ones.

“When you see Tha Rookie for the first time he is really calm, but when he gets on stage…it’s on!”

One time he did a show and the crowd was really skeptical about him. Once he started the show and showed that he didn't care whether or not they were joining in. He went all the way as if he was in a full stadium. 5 minutes later the crowd was joining is as if they already had his music in their playlist.

Hardheaded like an adolescent this rapper refuses to follow the mainstream. Doesn’t take no for an answer and always keep pushing the limit. Switching styles from melodically flowing to dropping punchlines.
Catchy hip-hop without the bubblegum sound.

With the single ‘I Put It Down’ out, which is receiving airtime on over 100 online radio stations, Tha Rookie is not satisfied until he is globally known.
