Viewing: Ron Royal - View all posts
2020 has been one for the books, I mean i'm very thankful for the time it has given me to really focus and create, but with so much sickeness, and death it can really take a toll on your mentally and emotionally which can at times interfere with creativity and work. But we push through regardless. I want to thank everyone that has been supporting and sending in pictures in their royal wear. It's always humbling and appreciated to the levels you guys go to in your loyalty of me and the brand and your patience for new music and content. I think for 2021 the goal will be to increase my output in every capacity and make sure that you don't go long without my presence being felt. Either way, we have a lot to look forward to.
What's up y'all! I know its been a minute since I've updated the site but I am here to let you know that you will soon be blessed with more content from me than you have had a in a while. Me and KÜL have been working on some new and might i say very Royal material. That will be dropping really soon. Speaking of KÜL he has still been holding me down and keeping me lifted up since the last time you heard from me, there have been a lot of changes in my life and I'm trying to figure out how to be able to explain that to you all outside of just the music. Maybe I should start a blog or live or something. What y'all think? Anyway there's a whole new Royal Team in place, and I can't wait to introduce you to them all.
The website is gonna be undergoing some construction and changes and it will be a new ronroyal.com better than ever before. I want to thank everyone that has been reaching out and patiently waiting for new material. I want to thank everyone that has been supporting the clothing line launch and sending in your pictures and spreading the word. Stay tuned as with the new website launch there will be a few raffles of items and I may even do some exclusive pieces not available in the store.
I'm just kind of rambling right now, so forgive me, blame it on the corona. I just wanted to pop in and say thank you and let you all know that I'm using this time wisely and being very productive. Will be sure to update you all again soon.
What’s up everyone,
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted, but know that I hard at work on both new music, my stage show and finally some visuals. I had to take a minute to regroup and recoup and things don’t always go as they should and not everyone that says they are for you mean it. Either way, my throne is still secure and the quest for greatness continues with vengeance. I thank you all for being patient and understanding and for all your support. I’m back and I’m here to win, for you, for me, for us. Stay Tuned!
2017...A year of growth, education, challenges, changes and victories. There not really much that I can complain about and as my grandmother would tell me, "it's really no point in complaining anyway as it don't help nothing." So I won't. What I will do is say thank you. Thank you to every visitor to the site, every listener to a song, every subscriber, every follower, every supporter. To my team, I could not have done this without you and next year we have quite a bit on the agenda and its all due to the work we've put in over 2017. To my producer KÜL, and my engineer B-Crazy, To Coke, hold ya head my dude. They are gonna be really surprised with what we do next. To my DJ, DJ Drop, lets get it, to Todd and the staff at Pasquet Music Group, thanks for your belief and support. To Honeycutt Law Firm, for your wisdom, guidance and protection of myself and my team. To my family, friends thank you a million. To the fans I love you and thank you. To those that I have yet to work with, 2018 Lets get it. and last but not least my team at So Royal Entertainment thank you for your hard work and dedication and holding me down as we get it all right, I couldn't ask for a better team and label. I have really grown a lot this year and I can't wait to show it you all starting in January 2018. I'm still going and I thank you all for continuing this journey with me. Here's to 2018! Let the reign begin.
Whats up family, Its been a little minute since I have personally posted, but all of that is more so do to being out and about creating things that are post worthy. I have a few things down the pipeline that I actually can't wait to post about that have been keeping me busy. I'm currently in the studio now working hard on the follow up to In The Meantime... and working hard to be able to bring the Ron Royal experience to a town near you very soon, along with some very special friends of mine. I will be making that announcement very soon though. I can't wait for you all to hear the new music I am working on, and will probably be posting some new videos here on ronroyal.com to capture the journey and bring you all into my world more. I know this post was pretty vague. I just wanted to hop on and say what's up really. So stay tuned, keep spreading the word and be sure to check out the shop tab and order your Ron Royal merch. Can't wait to see you all. Peace.
Today you can download In The Meantime....for $1.00
or you can Purchase the physical cd and download for $5.00
What's Good family, New thing I'm doing here, just because I love music and I am a fan first, so once a week I will post a different themed playlist to share some of my favorites and just let you all know more about me via the music I love. With this being the 1st one I guess its only right I start by trying to sum myself up in 10 songs. I will probably update this playlist a little later with the story behind each track but for now enjoy.
What up y'all, just wanted to take time to shout and show love to my dude KÜL the main man behind the boards for that Ron Royal sound, He produced the songs
"Ask Me If I Care", "Drippin", "Shawty Pt.2" , "Intro", "Down" off that "In The Meantime...EP" We have a lot more music coming for you this year. This guys range is ridiculous. But enough with the talking, y'all say what up to KÜL...
2016 was a good year, and I'm looking forward to making 2017 a great one, we made a lot of headway last year and this year the mission continues!
First off, I want to thank everyone last year that came to a show, downloaded or streamed the EP, took a picture, told a friend, expressed your support via social media and just overall rocked with me and my team. We have gone through quite a few changes to get here, and there have been some ups and downs, but all in all, we progress. Want to thank my team at So Royal Entertainment for everything, The KuL Nationz family, RadioActive Music, Maple Valley Media, Pasquet Music Group team, & Honeycutt Law Firm, for everything you've done to assist me up to this point, and looking forward to more work with you this year and many years to come. Shout out to my guys over at C&B Couture, for keeping me looking right (more on that to come),
I'm back to work, (well I never really stopped working) but new music is on the way, In The Meantime 1.5 is on deck, a few remixes, and new music for the new year, and that should be dropping relatively soon I will keep you posted. Also looking to bring a few new things here to ronroyal.com, more visuals, and I plan to be here more, to interact more and connect with you all a bit more as we journey along together.
Keep your eyes out for the new Ron Royal merch coming soon, got a new sponsorship situation that I will be announcing soon, with a lot of great merch to keep both me and you laced and looking real ROYAL out here.
I hope everyone had a great holiday, and I've gotten all the request for physical copies of the EP, so they are officially on the way and they will be available for purchase here on ronroyal.com and in a city near you.
I'm not one for a lot of talking so I am gonna wrap this up, but just wanted to drop in and say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that's been rocking with me for the last 365 and beyond. I appreciate the love and know that I am working even harder to keep that appreciation going. Hit me up here,
or on twitter and instagram: @ronroyal
Be blessed, One Love,
Tell me who do you call for protection, when the protectors are holding the guns, and they're pointed at you and there's no where to run?
What do you say to ears not listening, while standing in a stance of submission, hands up, praying that you don't end up missing?
The waiting, the ticking, away at your time, and your thinking Dear God don't let this here be my time
, please let someone drive by, speak up, see my eyes, I don't mean you no harm, and I don't want to die.
Was just minding my own, was just here on the phone, now I'm staring at chrome, surrounded but alone,
not a friend, not a brother, not a son, or a teacher,
but a creature, you see so instead you just reach for your piece, and my peace now ceases to exist, my life flashes before me, I didn't plan it like this,
You ever count down the seconds until your demise,
it feels like times moving slowly, and you don't think to cry
, and you don't think to scream, you're just thinking of faces,
your mom, your siblings, your children, now you're hatred,
just grows to all those standing before you now faceless
just voices you hear, and they make racist statements,
they dare you to jump, they dare you say shit,
they talk about killing you like it's just everyday basics
I close my eyes, like God, please don't let him pull it,
I asked for death at old age, not this day from a bullet,
I have lives left to change, I have goals still to reach,
and he spared me, and years later here I still fight to sleep,
flashbacks of that night still replay everyday,
and each new life that's lost, leaves me feeling guilty and afraid,
like I'm on borrowed time, like I'm not meant to be, and each time that I see them, I wonder are they coming for me,
Fast forward it's 2016, and it's actually worse
I stood there peacefully as the canisters burst,
and tear gas burns, have I not cried enough,
have you not lied enough,
have we not died enough?
In our quest to exist,
you said let your voices be heard, but our cries you resist,
in our quest to deescalate, you say we resist,
and that gives you right to make me cease to exist, Damn
I'm just trying to own my own, and make it home, use my art to pick my bone, and ask you, am I not just like you?
Eat food, work hard, breathe just like you, have family and friends that care just like you? See the news and worry for my safety just like you?
I am a man not a cancer,
wanting truth in my justice, and my questions answered.
To not break out in sweats which you think is suspect,
never thinking this is merely cause and effect.
I don't feel safe, and you take that as hate, when in my heart dwells only God and a desire to be great.
because I was chosen I matter, and no matter how much you may refuse to see it I matter.
To my mother, my brother and to others I matter.
I seek change just like you because I matter.
I'm enraged cause I matter, engaged cause I matter,
can I ask you honestly; are you afraid that I matter?
Someone prayed that I'd matter, someone stayed cause I matter,
and believe it or not things will change because I matter!
When I kneel I matter, just look at the news,
same thing in every city, are you seeing the views?
It's not just me out here are you seeing the hues,
light, dark, black, brown, and even whites believe that I matter too.
So why don't I matter to you?
Are we not one in the same?
I seek to make a difference, you know break up some more chains,
when you put on that uniform aren't you thinking the same,
you want to be respected, not feared and deemed strange.
Savage is your way of thinking, not the way we are acting, this is merely a reaction to your action,
We came here for peace, you come dressed for war, with your shields and your sticks, and tanks and your gas,
and your helicopter spotlights, how long you think that peace will now last?
Cause what started out a memorial, is now a stand off,
therefore we put our hands up, hoping you'll keep your hands off,
but you inch forward, behind shields, drawing lines in the sand.
So we grab what we can,
cause this might be it, you stared at our pain,
and your patience subsided, you box us in, surround us, throwing gas on the flames,
and when we react as you would we are labeled insane,
yet it's fine for you to act out after games in the name of celebration and no ones to blame,
how strange that we are not deserving of the same means of expression when we're seeking change.
I'm tired, and who knows what will become of these words,
will you ignore them as usual or give this the time it deserves?
Will you target me now, or seek to discuss,
just how we can build a bridge and close this gap between us?
Should I arm myself now, cause I know you have yours,
we are asking to be equal, seems like you're asking for war,
all this just because we are asking for more?
What you ask us to pledge to, what you ask us stand for,
you say be more American, so it's our right to demand more,
for our children, our future, our voices, our rights,
our choices, our chances, our peace and our life,
to leave in the morning and come home at night,
and to do it again everyday til it's right. Cause We Matter!
Be Blessed, Be Royal
