Explain who you are for those who don’t know?
I’m Ramy Khodeir, and I make non-explicit music about hard work, motivation, and commitment. Coming from an entrepreneurial perspective, I decided to invest in the world of hip hop to shine a dim light on my story. Music is heard everyday and everywhere; it’s a part of our lifestyle. It wasn’t until the beginning of my high school when I decided to pick up the mic and rap about the miracles I’ve witnessed and struggles I’ve experienced. Of course, I would rap about the times that I Iook forward to. There would be some songs that I would do for fun just to turn up. I try to give as many messages as I can, so my audience can apply them to their lives for success.
How long have you been doing music?
I’ve been making music since 2016. It took time to get started. First, I had to perfect my sounds, flows, lyrics, and cadences. I never knew I was going to sing or rap. Second, I had to get connections all over the city. I was amazed at all of my mixing and mastering on my songs. I go to my engineer’s professional studio to get my songs recorded. Third, I never dropped my first release because I thought I was going to get roasted. I was clouted back in middle and high school days, so everyone would see the drop unexpected. I dropped my first song “Can’t Lose” in January 2019. I performed it for my school’s Manual Got Talent—the month after. Then, I dropped my extended play Live It Up in July. I grew from there. I opened up for DaBaby—the year after. Connections is key.
What are your goals?
My goal is to meet Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, Future, and Lil Wayne. A song with each of them would be insane. I listen to music everywhere I go; I’m listening to one artist or the other.
What are you working on?
I’m working on a special project titled Solus Triumph. As of now, it’s my best work. Two songs: “International” and “World Champion.” Once all of the marketing is ready, it’s time to break into the system. Hopefully, I’ll make it.
Anything else you’d like to say?
Life is the best thing ever known. If you are an underground artist, finesse the system and work your hardest. This system works through connections. A lot of upcoming artists got talent, but they miss out on the marketing.
