D-Roof – Page

Cleveland’s Indie-rap scene hasn’t been the same since producer / lyricist D-Roof shot to the top of the pack. Versed in both wisdom and vocabulary that most artists could only dream of, D-Roof has managed to take Ohio by storm as early as only twenty-one years of age.  D-Roof (born Deontae Ruth) was born to a strong woman by the name of, Rainda Ruth. D-Roof grew up and lived in some of the roughest neighborhoods in Cleveland, an area plagued by poverty and dying industry. He fell in love with hip-hop starting back in grade school, “during those lunch periods watching my peers form a circle around lunch tables beating on tables with ink pens, and pencils while some other kids spit raps off the rhythms. It was that energy, that freedom, that got me into music.” He began free styling off of hip-hop and r&b Instrumentals, until one day his Eighth grade math teacher Mr. Kennedy (a.k.a. Stay High) got a hold of one of his mix tapes. D-Roof was thirteen years old when he began working in the studio, developing a style and sound that he still stays true to. He has placed many contributions to the local Cleveland Hip-Hop scene and has been a force to be unmatched. We here at Prhymal Rage have always been proud to not only put his name in our roster, but to call him a friend!  We now present to you, D-Roof, his legacy and his back catalog!
