Let’s get to it!

Introduce yourself:

My stage name is ReadyRockDee. I was born and raised in Yonkers, NY. I now reside in Bridgeport, CT and spent the last 10 years in Bridgeport.

What is unique about you and your music?

I’m a free spirit with my own ideals and rules to life. I pride myself on being authentic and true to the style of hip-Hop I feel in love with. Lyrics and flow mean the most to me. I’m huge on Having memorable lines and creative wordplay.
My stage show is what separates me from most of my peers. I embody a true emcee.

What shaped your music?

Of course my upbringing and surrounding . Coming up Yonkers, NY during a time when YONKERS had a serious impact on the game, being from one of the most notorious projects in NY “Mulford Gardens” where I’ve witnessed and been apart of all types of crazy shit. I’d also say The competitiveness that hip-hop represents is what shapes my music. I love the idea of being the best lyricist, having the hottest verse, being witty and clever. Before music , I was a very solid athlete and well known basketball player in my city. I’d like to think my competitive spirit comes from that too.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

After I opened up for Lloyd Banks in CT back in 2010. It was one of my first big shows (Sold out at 1000 capacity) and we “Rowdy City” were really beginning to make a name for ourselves locally and regionally around that time. We sold out all of our merch and put on a great show. But that moment solidified any doubts and people started taking us seriously. It became more than a glorified hobby at the moment, we knew there was no turning back.

What type of music do you listen to?

Aggressive, lyrical hip hop is my preference. However I pretty much listen to everything because there’s a environment for all types hip-hop. When I’m working out, cleaning the crib, or just hanging out, I like music with more meaning and substance. When I’m in the club, a cookout, or at a party, that turn up music be the wave. Then when I’m chilling with my lady, I can smooth it out and go R&B. It depends.

Who to you, is the most undervalued artist? Lloyd Banks. But there’s a few, I fuck with Nipsey and Freddie Gibbs too.

How do you prepare for your performances?

Tons of rehearsals in the crib with the remote as the microphone. Early sound checks before everyone arrives at the venue. I like to visualize my set. I also like to youtube some of my favorite emcees to draw inspiration. There’s nothing like being prepared and ready to deliver your best show. It brings out the best in the music. It’s my favorite part of being an emcee.

What ignites your (song) writing flow?

I’m completely random. Sometimes I can write mad verses to no beat just based on a spontaneous experience. Other times I can hear some dope beats and be in the zone for hours. I’m probably at my best when I can combine a personal experience with a popular subject in the culture. I like to incorporate my perspectives and give a unique outlook on trending topics.

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

I go to the gym for workouts. I don’t ball as much as I used to, but I still got game. I like being around my loved ones being a family man. Watch tons of sports. But at the end of the day I always end up doing something Hip-Hop related. It’s more than music to me, it’s a lifestyle, it’s a culture.

Success to you is:

Being a responsible man that provides for his family. Living life on your terms and embracing everything that comes with it.

Tell us about your upcoming project:

My solo project is titled “Someone. They’ll. Always. Remember.” It’s going to be filled with dope raps over all original production and top notch lyricism. I’m bringing that authentic, refreshing Hip-Hop feel that made me fall in love with Hip-Hop. It’s going to be debuted with the Shadyville DJ’s (DJ Superior) and independently distributed. We’ll be announcing some tour dates very soon along with the promo roll out. I leaked a bonus cut “Stack my Bundles” produced by Tu$hay on my YouTube and SoundCloud. The video for it should be dropping soon as well. Stay tuned, subscribe to my movement on all social media and be on the lookout for new content. I intend on bringing you Hip-Hop in its purest form and will follow through on my promise to deliver a great body of work. Peace to Jesse and everyone at for the interview. Salute!!

Jesus Christ Von!! There was one point in this track where I SWEAR the man had to be armed with a red bull and thesaurus. While I won’t take the time to butcher the lyrics, from :50 to 1:50 is pure lyricism and flawless delivery.


Excellent work!

Milwaukee is in good hands ya’ll!!
