Many hip hop artists and rappers are recognizable for wearing flashy jewelry in their music videos and talking about their overflowing bank accounts. While this has been a norm in the music industry, a new name has taken a completely different approach: Ron Stills.
Ron Stills is an up and coming rapper based in Riverside, California. His love for music began as any artist did, by hearing them on the radio. He would start writing songs at the age of twelve, mostly making remixes of company jingles and top charted songs. It was something he did that always brought a smile to his face and others around him. Ron found joy in piecing the words to fit together like a puzzle.
As he grew older, Ron continued writing his songs. This time, he began writing original songs that carried no deep meaning. Ron simply wrote fun songs for his own amusement. Eventually, he experienced more out of life and began to come into his own as a person. The songs he wrote gradually carried more meaning but always revolved around life.
With his sights set on building a career in the music industry, Ron put all his life into his music. The subject of his music isn’t just about his life but also the lives of everyone around him, taking inspiration from each life he encounters. As a musician, Ron feels that it’s important to see things from others’ perspectives, from different age groups to different nationalities and more.
The music that Ron produces is rap and hip hop mixed with nice melodies the characteristics of R&B. While mostly incorporating universal language that everyone can relate to, Ron also uses his Caribbean background. He challenges himself by using different words and phrases from his background. He also uses words and phrases that are seldom used in his music genre and tries to deliver it to be understandable. Ron tries as much as possible to avoid repeating the same words or using filler words in his music. Throughout the time he spent making music, Ron has written and recorded well over 300 songs while only releasing a handful of them.
As a budding artist having grown up in southern California, Ron Stills wants to create something that ultimately gives back to people and provide them with the opportunity to improve themselves and do great things with the mindset and motivation to do so. His musical influences, like Eminem, NWA, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac, among others, transcended music and helped him realize that something bigger can always be done, and Ron wants to be the one to do it.
Ron’s goal is to grow his brand and career. He believes that he will be in a blessed position that allows him to not only live comfortably and take care of his family but also help the next generation, whether in music or life.
