A History of Chi Town hip-hop icon: Just Ro. Rising from the Southside wild hundred streets of Chicago, Just Ro Broke into the hip-hop scene in 1998 with his debut album, ‘Make It Happen’, an EP that was written and produced by himself and featured the lead single “Confusion” featuring Common.
After underground success Just Ro began working with the production team of No I.D along side Dug Infinite, Spike Rebel, The Infamous Syndicate (Shawna & Teffa), and Common. However due to other contract commitments, he left the camp and moved to Houston and began work on his official full length album debut. After two years of recording he returned to Chicago and released "Whatever It Takes" .
In the summer of 2000 he released the lead single from that project entitled "Whoop Whoop" which gained some momentum on the underground scene, but was halted by the unjust incarceration of then label head, mentor, and friend Andre Lewis.
Frustrated and bound by contractual obligations, he walked away from music and began a career in investments. Unable to quiet his calling, A few years later he reunited with No I.D and Dug Infinite and began producing, writing and recording new material. He established a new brand, ALL OUT ENTERTAINMENT (A.O.E), alongside partners Brian Cooper and Stephan Smith, and is now completing the final touches on his new project "Evolution of Roland Hayes" which will be released in the fall of this year.
He is also working with other artists, such as Chi-town female MC Jamiss and pop artist Seth Simmons who is from Dallas on their current projects serving as a writer/producer and mentor.
