"If it doesn't make your eyes light up, then it ain't for you". What up everyone, it's your boy BuddyRoe, up & coming Hip-hop artist from Wichta, KS. Follow my life to Success!
"Music has come a long way from what it use to be to what it is now and it will forever continue to change, however, there are two things that stay consistent...The passion and the ability to create great music", that's what BuddyRoe believes when it comes to being a Music Producer/Artist. "Your Passion for music has to be at a peak that you barely reach on a daily basis and your ability to create great music has to be at a constant or it will be hard to keep up in this business".
BuddyRoe always knew in his heart that music would be the one thing excelling him to a level inside of him never reached before. "While growing up listening to music, I've never really paid much attention to what the artist had to say, more so was listening to the beat and how it made you move". BuddyRoe was introduced to music around the age of seven where he picked up his musical background through church. His mother required him to be in active participation with the church so he watched and followed his cousin as he played the music (drums & piano). But being born and coming from a small town in Centreville, MS, there wasn't much influence that one could gain from to become something so successful. "All I could remember growing up there was the poverty-stricken atmosphere & family, but i loved it, that's how we grew up". A change of scenery took part in his life when BuddyRoe moved to New Orleans via parents, that's when being around his cousin in church and the city life itself sorta took a hold on him. "I loved and still do love New Orleans to this day, ain't no place like it". It seem that BuddyRoe really never took music as serious as he should have. With pretty much all of the family in the area, the joys and pressure of following behind his older cousins in and out the streets preceded with him more than the music did. However, hip-hop was first introduced to BuddyRoe back in Mississippi listening to the Beastie Boys, UGK and a few other Southern Rappers at the time..."I never grew up listening to Rakim & Eric B, Krs-One like everybody else say they do, I'm from the South! we only messed with our own...lol."
A few years passed where BuddyRoe found himself moving from New Orleans and heading north to the Mid-west of the Map (Wichita, KS), Very much of a culture shock from the South, BuddyRoe tried to adapt to a new culture of living but never really let it become a part of him. After living in Wichita, KS for about two months, He ran into someone that changed his life completely; Larry Thomas (R.I.P.). "That was like my bro from another, there wasn't nothing I wouldn't do for him". Larry Thomas & BuddyRoe collectively work on music throughout the friendship, always honing the craft of creating beats. This also was a point in his musical journey where his mind also opened to a hip hop culture shock, realizing that there was tons of great music throughout the world besides the South. Through Larry, BuddyRoe hooked up Ruan (Ruan Duce) Thomas -although we already knew each other; we create a hip-hop trio group. Ruan Duce introduced BuddyRoe to other music such as Jay-Z & Biggie who was popular on the east coast. With wanting to expand the music that we were creating, Larry also introduced BuddyRoe to his cousin Sean (Black) Jackson. With Sean Black's gift of singing vocals, now creating music took us to a peak that we've never been to but wanted to go to. Along the way, Sean Jackson introduced Nathaniel (Boo) Houston & Xavier (A-Town) Ellison into the fold and from there Boo introduced Eli B to the squad...and from years of all of us having a music track record, we create a powerful hip hop camp that vast of lyrical bars on unlimited content, an unorthodox style of flow and delivery, in-house production with industry ready/sounding beats and a R&B sound that can reach the masses..."10yrs strong and we still stand together, now you tell me another hip-hop group that's still together after so many years".
"Yeah, everybody before has built there style off from someone or something, the solution is knowing how to take what you heard or seen, mold it into your creativity to make some totally fresh and rejuvenating. BuddyRoe Production skills as beat maker goes 10 years in. Not taking any personal lessons on music (except High school Band), BuddyRoe was hand-on and self-taught himself. Having a profound sound of his own, one may think that style was created from the like of Dr. Dre, Timberland, Kayne West. His production is very signature of his drum placements. His lyrical skills is set 10yrs in also. He has a great delivery and a smooth tone to match. His flashy and witty wordplay also captures the ears of those on more of the lyrical content side of music. His topics are not normally of the common themes that you hear in most music today, but of those that may seem to be of the topic; which includes current event with the world to the trial of the street, something fun for the clubs and relations; his creativity makes it sound like something new.
"Yes, my main goal is to create myself with the artistry side as well as the production side and to market into the mainstream of music. Also to let the world know that great does exist beyond New York & L.A., "Everything has a middle point, including music..."Welcome to Kansas"!
