Meet Ronan, 19 years old from Cold Spring, NY.
“I made my playlist to culminate all of my favorite rap/hip-hop songs onto one playlist specifically for long road trips. I actually made it while my dad and I took a road trip from NY to Oregon.”
What is the soundtrack to your life? (A song or album that you feel like describes you or helps express who you are)
Legacy - Logic
What’s more important to you Music or Lyrics? Why?
Lyrics for sure. Lyrics to me are 90% of what makes (rap especially) so special and so poetic. You hear artists struggles, experiences, life stories through their lyrics. Lyrics also are so fascinating because of how emotional they can make someone else feel, to feel like what life is in their shoes. It's truly incredible and hopefully rap continues to have artists that contribute meaningful lyrics for everyone to enjoy.
Top 5 Favorite Artists?
(In no order) Logic, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Eminem
If you had the chance to interview any artist, who would it be, and why? (Dead or Alive)
Logic for sure. He's probably my favorite artist of all time, and he was the one who really got me into rap in the first place. I found him on SoundCloud in 2012 and I haven't stopped listening since. He's incredibly inspiring and I love his work.
Last concert you attended?
The musical artist on Jimmy Kimmel when I was visiting LA last summer. "Dan + Shay" was definitely not my first choice since I'm a fan of rap. They're talented nevertheless.
