While most artists prefer to repeat the same formula ad nauseam, our own New Millennium Man , otherwise known as RoQ’y TyRaiD (prn. Rocky Tirade) strives to advance himself in as many creative ways as possible while adhering to the strict quality-code of “dope beats / dope rhymes”. Whether he’s effortlessly racing through aggressive beats, with the intensity of his execution only matched by the seemingly intrinsic ability to flow in and round each pocket; playfully expressing himself over light-hearted, soulful sounds; or using his unique ability at sprinkling social commentary in his work to spark dialogue and channel the human experience — one thing is for certain: CONTENT. RoQ’y TyRaiD has mastered the art of molding lyricism, a perfected ear for beats into absolute standout material, leaving you immersed in a colorful world courtesy of his own vivid imagination.
Although first attacking the National Indie-Ground Scene in the Winter of 2010 with his acclaimed project The New Millennium Man, RoQ’y TyRaiD as we know him, was forged through years of grinding in the Southwest Region; selling thousands of cds hand to hand, building an understanding of the nature of a music grind whilst preparing to take his music National. And it worked; by 2011, he had already captured the slots of numerous “best up-and-coming indie artist” lists on acclaimed web publications. Further cementing his name within this specific topic of conversation with appearances and placements on internationally recognized Hip-Hop segments such as Shade 45, The Wake Up Show on Shade45 , Redy Set Radio, Rhyme and Reason — and and plethora of other Hip-Hop Format watering holes. With national tours under his belt, his upcoming groundbreaking project The Dichotomy of RoQ’y TyRaiD underway, you can rest assured you’ve placed your chips on a true representative of your generation of Hip-Hop.
