NEW YORK - Nov. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- "In regards to music as a whole, the artist is only limited by his perception" -R.O. Hutch
Raleigh, North Carolina born Joey Chrisp, Raleighs Own [R.O.] Hutch has always been regarded to as a slept on talent by local artist around the Raleigh N.C. area.
The son of a musician, Hutch's father was preparing to sign a production contract with Sugar Hill and the Gang but unfortunately was killed in a car accident the night prior to the scheduled signing date. Hutch, then only one years old, was left to a single parent home. Growing up on the Southside of Raleigh N.C. with older sister Omega and younger brother Frank, Hutch shares a similar beginning to many other rap Superstars. "Each individual gets something different from being raised in the inner city" says Hutch. In my case growing up in poverty and in the projects made me determined. It also sharpen disciplines that I rely on today. Being from the bottom can either make you or break you, Hutch has clearly shown he will not be broken by his past.
Hutch has always been a musician. At an early age he began to write whole songs, he also is a self taught pianist. Taking after his father Frankie Chrisp, Hutch began to really take rap serious shortly after high school. First cousin and platinum selling producer Black Jeruz played a major role in helping Hutch see the music industry as an attainable destination. Hutch and Jeruz worked very closely while Jeruz was signed to the Super Group G-Unit as a producer. This relationship and timing help develop Hutch even further as an artist, and a business man. "In this period of my life, I learned the importance of song formatting and good hooks" say Hutch, "50 had um going crazy".
First appearing in the underground circuit in in 2008 with his first mixtape sampler SOUTHSIDE STAR Hutch began to receive a lot of attention as a writer and spitter within the local music community. Hutch also kills live performances, his swagger demands attention. Soon after SOUTHSIDE STAR Hutch released another mixtape "I AM RALEIGH" in which again he displayed versatility and growth of an unprecedented amount. "Above all, the complete song is what the listener will be left with hook, verse/lyrics, and beat selection plays an equal role in the finished product." -Hutch.
Currently, Hutch is promoting his newest Extended Play Project MIND OF MINE released Summer 2015, this project consists of 9 original, well put together songs. The project has to date been featured in multiple notable blog sites such as THISIS50.com and UNDERGROUNDHIPHOP.com and many others. This time around Hutch showcases incredible flow and songwriting ability. Truly a sound of his own R.O. Hutch stands out in any crowd of rhymers whether industry or Indy, and his overall songwriting ability is sure to capture the hearts and minds of listeners worldwide for a long time. It is my absolute pleasure to give you R.O. HUTCH
