Rozewood is the MC’s ultimate MC. Rozewood has been influenced by rhyme savvy mc’s such as MF Doom, Raekwon, Nas, Kool G rap, Wu-Tang Clan and many more of or favorite lyricists. His intellectual and sharp witty rhymes are easily executed in his deadly freestyle abilities. In fact, while attending Clark University in Atlanta, G.A. he battled Mos Def to a draw. The legendary story goes like this, one night Rozewood was at a local MC battle arena in the Atlanta area, where he happened to be the battle champion of the night. This same evening Mos Def was attending as a viewer in the audience. As the crowd erupted to Rozewood and his furious wordplay, they hyped up the room for Mos Def to jump on the stage against Rozewood. At the end of the night, the two left the crowd with a jaw dropping back and forth experience of fine emceeing.
Rozewood has also been the opening act for mc’s such as Common, M.O.P., Smif ‘N’ Wessun, and K.R.S. ONE.
There is an honesty in his music that is rare in mainstream hip hop today. He has an uncanny ability to paint an accurate picture of the pain, passion and struggle that is real life.
