Looking up to rappers such as Jay-Z, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Big Krit, and other Detroit native such as the late J. Dilla and Royce da 5’9, Ronald Allen Williams, better known by his stage name Ron.D is taking the Detroit hip-hop scene by storm. Raised on the West side of Detroit, Ron. D was the product of a single mother household by his loving mother John-ny Williams. He was the youngest of 4 children. His 2 older sisters, Colina and Tana along with his older brother Reese were very influential to him during his upbringing. Tana and Reese now watch over him from heaven.
Using his life experiences as motivation to the mic, Ron.D started rapping at the age of 14 after being inspired by his older brother and mentor Reese as well as Chicago rapper J. Seuss. In 2001 Ron.D took his passion for rap further and formed a rap group with 4 of his childhood friends called "Donizm". Donizm went on to release two mixtapes, "Get Doe (2003)" & "Dead Presidents (2004)". The group disassembled shortly after. If life in Detroit couldn't get any worse, Ron.D's biggest influence, his big brother Reese, passed away. Feel-ing like he couldn't move on Ron. D dropped out of school and soon after moved to Atlanta in 2005.
While in Atlanta, Ron.D hooked up with artists from all over the United States to form the rap group "The Empire". The Empire released two mixtapes "We don't strike back we strike first (2005)" & "Hate it or Love it (2006)". After having some personal and managerial is-sues with The Empire Ron.D, returned to Detroit in 2007 with little to no hope in pursuing a musical career.
In 2011, an almost 4 year break from music, Ron.D was ready to jump back in and give rap-ping all he had; but this time he would do it solo. He teamed up with the legendary produc-er/engineer P. Gruv and became a part of the J Dilla "the Rebirth of Detroit" project. With this new relationship Ron.D decided that he would either tackle the rap game head on or he would never touch the mic again. This new lease on life birthed his highly anticipated debut solo mix tape "Now or Neva."
With the success of “Now or Neva”, it was only natural for Ron.D to give his fans more of his life story. In July 2012, Ron.D released his sophomore solo mixtape “You Can’t Deny Me.” The mixtape highlighted his talents and as the title implies, his talent is truly undenia-ble. On this mixtape he featured artists Ellie Sandiego, Mik Shiest and Samara Naier. He al-so worked with the legendary DJ Dez Andres and Boneus as well as producers Sheefy Mcfly, Geno XO and DJ Sicari.
The streets have been begging for more and as always Ron.D is ready to deliver. As he is preparing to drop his third solo project “You Still Can’t Deny Me,” Ron.D is making sure that everyone knows how serious he is with this gift. Perfecting this craft comes seamlessly as he rips the mic on every track and rocks the crowd like the greats that prepared the way before him.
