The hardest battle you’re ever going to fight is the battle to be just you. When it comes to Toronto rap artist Ramone (formerly R Tripz), he sets himself apart from the cliché images and musical content of the genre by simply being himself every time he picks up the mic.
Ramone Stewart grew up initially in the of Keele and Eglinton Avenue West area in Toronto, and began pursuing music at the age of 14. He began to make a name for himself in Toronto’s budding underground hip-hop scene and began to take his career to new levels.
In 2007, he released his first single “IM Nice.”
Being 17 at the time and so young, he took to the Internet with it garnering 20,000+ downloads and large amounts of supporters. Ramone was able to brand himself and bring a new alias to his fans as, “Mr. IM Nice.” With the success of the song, he has created his own Corporation; IM NICE INC, and record label, IM NICE ENTERTAINMENT.
Ramone has performed all over Toronto and surrounding cities rocking crowds at notorious clubs and venues such as Home Nightclub, Trilogy Nightclub, MOD club, Augusta House, Club Hype, Nibour Hall, Status Lounge, Green Bottle, Ep Taylors, The Roi Nightclub, The Music Hall, Banshee Bar and Grill, BLVD resto-lounge, Rebel Nightclub, Generals Bar and more. JD Era brought him out as a special guest performance in 2014 at Dundas Square’s TDOT Fest.
Ramone is a true performer and aside from his aspirations in music, he is also beginning to get into acting and is pursuing his dreams in that as well. He received his first speaking role as a prisoner in a TV show called Breakout and from then on has gotten credits in several television series.
“As far as my acting experience, I’ve made background appearances for some amazing shows like Flashpoint, Wingin’ it, Alphas, Covert Affairs, Cosmopolis, Duel Suspects, Degrassi, and After Math,” says Ramone.
He also made a starring appearance on the hit MuchMusic reality show Love Court which aired in November of 2010. The hard work and grind that Ramone has applied to his music career is continually taking him to new heights and is instilling the business mindset that many artists lack. As he continues to develop his career its clear that Toronto’s Punch Line Prince is here to stay.
His single, “Get It” has played on Toronto’s Flow93.5, Sirius Radio XM, Hip Hop Nation, Power 105. New York and more internationally.
It is safe to say that he is here to stay.
