When it comes to the truth, Rossetti Stone is all about it. He admits wholeheartedly that when he started rhyming at the tender age of 14, he wasn't anything to write home about but it was his determination and attention to detail that kept him going. In pursuit of making his dreams a reality, he continued to work on his craft in the confines of his bedroom. By the time he was old enough to vote he started to take things to the next level, and since 2012 the emcee from Kalamazoo has dropped almost a dozen records, including his upcoming March 2019 release Grove Street Confessions. While he'll forever rep and have love for Kalamazoo where he got his start, the reality is that Rossetti Stone moved around a lot. From there to Detroit to currently taking over the Big Easy, he's all about getting his music out there and heard. He's created over 500 songs since his teens and has performed dozens of local shows. If he's got an address in town, he is more than likely going to find a stage to do his thing on. Which is never an issue because fans have flocked towards the universal themes of his music. From the ins and outs of love to running towards one's dreams, it's all good in his Rossetti Stone's audible hood. Many fans caught feels listening to his personal favorite, "Long Fall." A tribute to the late, great Mac Miller, it's a testament to not only his own admiration for his peer but a look at a life lost too soon. Another sad note comes from "Restless Nights." Inspired by a cousin who'd passed, it was the first song Rossetti Stone ever did and continues to hold a special place in his heart and catalog to him and many around the world who hit up his page on the regular. The emcee notes of his sound that's ultimately inspired by Mac Miller's flows and Biggies nonchalant attitude towards the world, "I make music to fill the void I don't hear in the music today. The versatile way I approach music makes me unique. I pull from all aspects and don't care what the masses think. I make music I want to hear. Which may sound selfish but I do this for me and my happiness, and If I can help others that can relate then great."
Music is my everything, it gives me peace and clarity...
To make a living with my music! And to be one of the best...
I would start with disease
Toxicity by SOD or My Name Is by Eminem
Mac Miller, Sublime, The Doors
Being in control and starting with an idea and watching it blossom
That we all are connected and go threw a lot of the same hardships and pain, and that no one is alone
Like Im where I'm supposed to be
I see it as tough, being more in control of your music and actually putting out quality songs and not just trolling on the internet or being a twitter rapper, actually living the music and putting your all into your craft
I think its a great platform for artists to connect with other artist and build into what they want to become in this music industry.
Not being heard
Yes, I frequently go to local shows, buy CD's, Merch, and collaborate with local talent.
Social Presence, Drive, Strong work ethic, and not to be afraid to put it all out there.
Doobie, Resource, We As One, and me Rossetti Stone
