Xcuses was born Ryan J Harrington on November 15, 1986, in Rockland, Maine. Only three years of living in Maine they packed up and headed to Derby Kansas, a suburb south of Wichita. Ryan was raised by his mother and father here until high school, he graduated and was on his own. Luckily meeting his high school sweetheart it made things a little easier. He started writing music in middle school but didnt get behind the mic until after highschool. This is where he met Gash and Bilistic. NewLife records and Bilistic quickly picked up Ryan as an artist on the label, because of the talent that you sure didnt see coming from a white boy from the middle of the map. Featured on NewLife's compilation album; "NewLife Ryders", Xcuses started turning some heads. Most recently featured on Bilistic's new album, and releasing his first miXtape; "X marks the spot". http://www.datpiff.com/Xcuses_X_Marks_The_Spot.m140365.html Currently Xcuses is traveling and working on his freshman debut album.
