“You will not be successful overnight. Everything takes time and it has a process.”
Check out the interview with Ronnie Run exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Ronnie Run: I started out being a DJ at first, but when that fell through I tried my hand at rapping. I wrote my first rhyme in the 5th grade after a test. I passed the test and my cousin who I let read my rap like it so I went with it.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Finish school first and learn the background to hip hop. You will not be successful overnight. Everything takes time and it has a process. You got to have patient.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Writing a song is a challenge, but you have to take that chance and see how the fans respond.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
The best way to promote your music is through social media. This is where you will find your fans at.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
There are a lot of artists in the Winterville/Greenville NC area. Around here if the fans love your music, they will follow you to the end. I’m just blessed to have some good fans in my area.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Doing what I love to do and spreading positive music. Hopefully my music will make a huge impact and change some lives in the world.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration was my daughter. I look up to God because he is making everything possible.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I grew up in the 70’s/80’s. I like some of the music but the majority of it has no message behind it. I want to hear music that’s gonna touch my soul from the inside and have me thinking and saying “Wow that has a dope message.” How many drugs you gonna sell in your music before you get busted, feel me?
