Ralphy Boy / Bio

With art in his blood due to his father being a professional painter, as he would explain it, Ralphy Boy's music is his way of drawing a picture with words. Born the son of Haitian parents in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on November 14, 1984. Although growing in such an ill neighborhood Ralphy was able to be exposed to different environments and cultures which allowed him to pick up different talents and crafts leading him to falling in love with music. His choice was not only a way for him to be his own man and escape his father's shadow but also as a way for this once shy young man to break out of his shell and express himself without any limitations. Although, the inspiration has been a part of him it wasn't until the death of his father was when Ralphy decided to take his music career a bit more seriously.

The passion in this Brooklyn Hip Hopper's high pitched voice in addition to his use of charismatic rhyme schemes, well crafted wordplay, relentless flow, head nodding instrumentals and catchy hooks gives listeners the feeling of the raw Hip Hop enthusiasts of this genre have grown to love and miss dearly. As a storyteller, Ralphy gives you his life of love, pain, anger, happiness and being fly in such a way no artist can but that everyone can relate to. Within each song you learn something new about not only Ralphy Boy the artist but the man as well.

Ralphy has some of the mid 80's showman's ethos that permeated hip hop during that time. Evoking the spirit of old school legends like Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Dana Dane & Kool Moe D, Ralphy is on a mission to make sure his audience has much as a good time as he does. In this world of hipster rap where looking cool often seems to trump moving the crowd, Ralphy's audience first approach is refreshing to say the least.
