When you think about RMLLW2LLZ (pronounced Romell with 2 L's), you might have more than one version in mind. Self-identifying as a dad and a husband, a hip-hop head with mad rhymes and production skills; an activist, philanthropist, and mentor; a co-host of I and Eye Radio on 97.1 ArtxFM WXOX; or 2016 Louisville Music Award Hip Hop artist of the year nominee.
The thing is, he’s all that and more, a boss emcee that never minces words who draws from artists as disparate as Curtis Mayfield, DJ Quick, Nas, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Sade, Lauryn Hill, Busta Rhymes, and Prodigy (Mobb Deep). You can hear that variety in his music, which never sleeps on the hard R&B/jazz grooves, a golden age of hip-hop style that always sounds fresh.
RMLLW2LLZ hustles. He’s performed at Forecastle and Waterfront Wednesday with Dr. Dundiff and Friends and at the record release show celebrating that momentous collaboration, annually at the Juneteenth Festival Racine WI since 2013, and with a who’s who of talent including E40, Blue Print, Rakim, Raekwon (Wu-tang Clan), and Big Boi (Outkast) and is a staple in the Louisville hip-hop scene earning a 2016 Louisville Music Award Hip Hop artist of the year nomination along the way.
Romell has an ear for a good beat, working with some of the finest producers and vocalists in the city for a sound that you have to bang to. This is the kind of music that you get smooth too, that you put on to let other people know that you are onto that next level business.
