R.O. Hutch

It would only make him more determined and at the early ages of his childhood, he would become a pianist, conquering the skill of playing music and memorizing notes and keys. Pursuing a music career would start in Hutch’s high school years, being mentored by his first cousin and platinum selling producer, Black Jeruz. After being discovered, Jeruz signed a contract with reigning rap label at the time, G-Unit, and would start to help Hutch develop himself as a businessman and musician. ‘In this period of my life, I learned the importance of song formatting and good hooks,’ says Hutch, in reference to his initial phase of coming up in the music industry. His first appearance in the underground circuit of artistry would be in 2008, with the dropping of his debut mixtape, ‘Southside Star’, where he would be recognized by listeners as a talented writer and emcee. Soon after getting his feet wet in the underground music industry of NC with his first release, a second EP by Hutch, entitled ‘I Am Raleigh’ would follow – presenting Hutch’s new growth and versatility. Hutch’s latest release and extended play project, ‘Mind of Mine’ consists of nine original tracks. This project has landed features on sites like ThisIs50.com , UndergroundHipHop.com, and more. Hutch was also apart of the first series of Carolina Greatness, directed by author/writer/visionary Chakara Conyers, along with the top artists in the capital area triangle. Standing out in any crowd, with unique lyricism and beast production, separates Hutch from the majority. You’d want to stay tuned to what he has in store next.
