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