SongVault Artist Profile
North Carolina, United States
Old School / Dirty South
Born and raised in a small town of Winterville, North Carolina Ronnie Run is a well-known rapper with a lot of streets . "I want to put North Carolina on the map and show that there is talent around the state." Growing up around the Pitt County area was just plain and real for Ronnie. "Where I'm from was nothing different from your New York or LA. Living in the South; the pace is slow and the hard work is there." Starting out as a DJ; Ronnie knew or thought this was something he wanted to do. After the Dj thing fell through; "I had a backup plan and it was rapping." Ronnie's influences are God, my daughter Jocelyn, my family, The Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster and the Furious Five, 2Pac, Notorious BIG, Rakim, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, KRS-One, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Jay-Z and the list goes on and on. "I remember the first time I heard "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang and I knew from that point; rapping was something I wanted to do." It was during a school test when Ronnie wrote his 1st rap song. After that I called my cousin Big Buji and he told me that he was putting beats together so we got in the studio and did my first EP "Lyrical Masta;" it became a street classic. Two of those songs hit the radio airwaves "Ghetto Stress FT. Black Chyna" and "North Kack for Real." With the success of these songs, I thought it was time for me to try a new producer.
Ronnie Run debut album called "New World"" with 3 tracks making noise as we speak. You can't go wrong with "I Remember," "Enough"(bully track)and Put it Down which is making some crazy noise as we speak! Ronnie is continuing to network and recording, waiting to get a break. "I am bringing a whole lot to the table as a artist and I am willing to give 200% if needed"

A song with nobody getting killed?", DJ King Bee from South Carolina says: "Ronnie Run is the truth he is nice on the mic!", Big Skye (2Pac homie) says: "Ronnie Run sounds like a new version of Biz Markie."
