Repping the North, South & Caribbean it’s safe to say that the son of Reggae artist Curry Don, is a melting pot of influences. Rohan states: “Brooklyn Hip Hop shaped my rhymes, Dancehall gave me my vibe and roots and the south gave me time to polish my skills.” Although Rohan flourishes in many genres music the world got it's first glimpse of Rohan's musicianship through his rapping skill. Rohan’s groundbreaking Hip Hop EP, The Real, received much recognition and praise from the tastemakers and trendsetters in the Hip Hop industry (Most notably HHS1987). The real life subject matter ranged from love, good and bad to death, struggle, optimism, and society's ills. The Real is a crafty infused masterpiece with lyrical drive, wit, and common subject matters that listeners from all walks of life can relate to. In 2017 Rohan continued to flex his Hip Hop range with his rightfully named single "HIT" which showed a more aggressive and main stream sound from Rohan. Not only does Rohan live and breathe Hip Hop, he's a walking melting pot of music. RDG showed us the first glimpse of his musical versatility when he stepped onto the EDM scene being featured on DJ/Producer Dani Deahl's track, "SMYK” (Show Me Your Kitties). The track received a tremendous amount of spins and streams which caused it to chart on several platforms. The song also received praises from MTV.com, Oxygen.com and Billboard.com, which eventually led to a national tour and some hugebusiness opportunities. Rohan's versatility didn't stop there. He flexed his reggae skills on his hit single, "SummerTime," which made huge waves and spawned the self-made "Summertime Tour" of 2016. The tune was and still is being well received by DJ's, radio stations, club goers and fans across the nation. Rohan continued to provide Island Heat in 2017 with his single "One More”.  The song was a huge success and received international praise from DJ’s and fans across the world who make social media posts dancing to or endorsing. Rohan has garnered comparisons to the likes of Hip Hop icons such as Jay Z and Kanye West, while gaining the respect of reggae lovers and EDM fans across the World! Even though Rohan had had success in these different genres, he plans on focusing on his first love Reggae/Dancehall. Rohan’s debut reaggae/dancehall project #SIXLOVEis dropping mid summer and given his track record so for Rohan is definitely yogi to be an International success.
