&nbsp;Rome Cee is a hip hop artist known for making thought provoking music.&nbsp;<br /> He was born in San Diego, California. His father served in the&nbsp;<br /> military and the family moved frequently, finally migrating to his&nbsp;<br /> hometown of Baltimore, MD at the age of 8. Converting from Military&nbsp;<br /> Schools to the harsh conditions of Baltimore public school systems was&nbsp;<br /> no easy task. Rome spent many of his early years in trouble and&nbsp;<br /> attempting to fit in with the growing hip-hop culture. Heavily&nbsp;<br /> influenced by rappers such as Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clan and Nas,&nbsp;<br /> Rome began writing rap songs at the tender age of 11. Although he&nbsp;<br /> would not completely escape the wrath of street life, performing in&nbsp;<br /> school talent shows and writing managed to keep him out of trouble. It&nbsp;<br /> wasn&rsquo;t until the death of his mother in 1999, that Rome would have more&nbsp;<br /> of a presence in the city's drug scene, selling cocaine and using&nbsp;<br /> ecstasy to escape the impact of an incredible loss. It took for Rome&nbsp;<br /> to get arrested by police and chastised by family members to realize&nbsp;<br /> his much greater purpose in life. His trials and tribulations would&nbsp;<br /> lead him to making more heartfelt music that would reach many in his&nbsp;<br /> town. Rome began making albums and distributing them in his local area,&nbsp;<br /> recording with known producers such as Vaughn Mason widely known for&nbsp;<br /> hits such as &quot;Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll&quot;. These experiences taught&nbsp;<br /> Rome how to structure songs and record in a professional setting. Rome&nbsp;<br /> released his mix tape, So Much More in August of 2008 and followed in&nbsp;<br /> April of 2010 with the Free EP, Tunnel Vision. The latter has had much&nbsp;<br /> internet success and has been labeled by Baltimore City Paper's Al&nbsp;<br /> Shipley to be a Stealth album. Rome is planning to release his fourth&nbsp;<br /> project, The Extra Mile in the spring of 2011. Although the road to&nbsp;<br /> success has been hard for him and many others alike, he maintains a&nbsp;<br /> positive outlook on the future.
