“Ro Ransom dances through each song, dynamically, giving him the air of a predator toying with its lunch right before the kill.”The FADER

“Ro transitions from singing to passionately rapping with ease, and he’s incredibly gifted at both.” – Complex

“Ro Ransom is great at placing smooth melodies over dark, somewhat spooky production and creating hits.” – Pigeons & Planes

Ro Ransom is a 23-year-old hip-hop artist hailing from Manhattan, New York, a place he calls Wonderland. Born to two parents with musical backgrounds (his father being a drummer for the late Whitney Houston and others), entertainment was always in his blood. He’s cited people such as Sasha Grey and Jeff Hardy as influences for what leads his style in such a dark, sensual direction. Ro grew up surrounded by thieves and killers, models and artist s, drug dealers, drug users and everything in bet ween: which created the dichotomy t hat exists in his music. A rapper whose comparisons often lay closer to a deviant lovechild of Justin Timberlake & Aaliyah, he weaves in and out of razor sharp, rattlesnake tooth raps, with mesmerizing melodies that even the toughest guys in the room can never resist . Ultimately, Ro uses his own enigma and eccentricities to help inspire those who have trouble grappling with their own identity and place in the world. Ro is also a writer for others and has worked with Khalid, Witt Lowry, and more.
