“We believe in writing our own rhymes, making our own beats, making exactly the kind of music that we want to, and representing the Midwest to the fullest.” (Ronzo page 1).
Since then, he and his fellow MCs have reunited in the spring of 2011 to go to the studios and did what they loved to do; make beats. Ronzo had a passion for music, which his fellow members Ace Adams and Manuel, whom were both aspiring DJs performing at local venues, clubs and bars in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, and had experience in music production and sound engineering.
“Everyone has their own crazy college story. Whether it involves drinking and drug-abusing or not, it’s most likely completely hilarious. This one just so happens to involve all sorts of classic college party-style debauchery. The story is based on a true one, but in some cases slightly exaggerated. Let me give you guys a little bit of a backstory:
I used to attend Bowling Green State University for Undergraduate, and due to certain circumstances I dropped out before I could finish my degree. During the time I was there, many of my friends visited me to partake in the various party scenes that I knew of. Very memorable stories were produced on all occasions, and this song is a culmination of all of them.
So here’s to those college years. Raise one up, light one up, whatever you prefer.” – Ronzo.
