Click Here To Download

Support my bro and producer J. Slikk by downloading his latest instrumental LP, A Tribute To Jen DeLeon. Don’t know who Jen DeLeon is? Click here. In the meantime, enjoy the tunes. Some of these beats may have R.O.E. vocals on them when you here them down the line. My personal favorites are…ALL OF ‘EM (see what I did there). Listen thru and you’ll agree.

Signed,

A Backpacker Named R.O.E.

I won with “I Won”…

Yesterday, I was featured in a track-off competition presented by Kyra Kyles, a writer for the Chicago Red Eye. The competition features tracks from two Chicago artists who are competing for a spotlight feature in the Chicago Red Eye newspaper. I submitted my latest single, I Won, and ironically…I Won. I want to thank everyone who voted yesterday. It was close race but you guys continued to push me over the top. Forever grateful for that.

Details to come on the feature. I believe it will be in this Thursday’s Chicago Red Eye. You can pick up a free copy anywhere around the city or read it via their site.

Thanks again for the support. Together, we’ll keep “winning”.

Signed,

A Backpacker Named R.O.E.

Song of the day: Bilal – Sometimes (live on BBC 1)


This song is off Bilal’s first album, 1st Born Second. I love the original version but I’ve been grooving to this live version he did on BBC 1. Enjoy the tune. Remember, Bilal has a new album dropping this coming Tuesday entitled, Airtight’s Revenge. Enjoy the tune.

Live from Tini Martini

Here’s a pic from the Snewty.com “Summer Music Soulstice” event I performed at. Had a great time rocking. Even got a chance to rock with my homie Real T@lk (we did “Alittle Bit”).

Catching up.


Wassup Soulvillians,

I know its been a few days since I last wrote to y’all. I’ve been off, trying to catch up on music and school work. Its been moving thus far. I vow to write y’all more often tho. I have an app on my phone to update and I rarely use it. I guess it’s time to put that to use. More importantly, new music coming. Stay tuned.

Signed,
A Backpacker Named R.O.E.

The water joke.

*cues the Seinfeld bass riff*

You know what kills me? People who consider natural spring or purified water to be “just water”. They’ll say Fiji is no different from tap water. Like are you serious. That’s just like saying sex is just sex. I mean there’s good sex and there’s bad sex. If it’s all just sex, why doesn’t anyone want the bad? Things that make you go, hmm!

I bet they’ll stop calling it just water now.
