MY STORY

SUCCESS DOESN'T COME EASY. SINCE DAY ONE, PERSISTENCE HAS BEEN THE NAME OF THE GAME FOR ROYSTAR SOUNDSICK. LONG BEFORE ENTERING THE WORLD OF PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINMENT, STAR WAS JUST ANOTHER KID LIVING ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO. AFTER ATTENDING THE INSTITUTE OF PRODUCTION AND RECORDING IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA,  ROYSTAR SOUNDSICK'S TALENT AND WORK ETHIC CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF BRIAN "CHAMPTOWN" HARMON WHO EVENTUALLY GARNERED AN ARTIST DEAL WITH UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP'S IMPRINT LABEL CANOROUS RECORDS, HELMED BY ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER DON WILSON. ONSCREEN, ROYSTAR SOUNDSICK HAS APPEARED IN OVER 100 MAJOR MOTION PICTURE PROJECTS, INCLUDING TELEVISION SERIES AND MAJOR MUSIC VIDEOS. THESE WORKS HAVE BEEN FEATURED ON EVERY MAJOR NETWORK FROM MTV TO HBO.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

LEANING AGAINST THE SIDE OF THE PARKED AIRCRAFT, THE INFLECTION IN STAR'S VOICE BEGINS TO SHIFT WHEN QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS CHILDHOOD ARISE. "I GREW UP IN A ROUGH AREA ON THE SOUTH-SIDE OF CHICAGO, SO I SAW A LOT AT A YOUNG AGE. KIDS GREW UP FAST WHERE I'M FROM. A LOT OF MY FRIENDS HAD KIDS IN THE 6TH AND 7TH GRADE. PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE HOW ROUGH IT IS OUT THERE UNTIL THEY SEE IT FIRST HAND. WHEN MY POP MOVED US OUT, I HAD FRIENDS COME BACK WITH ME TO THE CRIB SHOOK LIKE, DAMN FAM IT’S CRAZY OUT HERE." 

WITH THE MURDER RATE ON THE RISE, STAR'S FAMILY RELOCATED. "I THINK MY POP DIDN'T WANT US TO BE STATISTICS. AFTER MY SISTER'S BOYFRIEND GOT SHOT FOR HIS JACKET, THAT'S WHEN IT REALLY HIT HOME LIKE, THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANYBODY ON ANY GIVEN DAY. WE GOT TO GET OUT OF THIS." 

 

 

TRANSITION

AFTER A YEAR OF LIVING IN JACKSONVILLE (FLORIDA) WHERE HE ATTENDED FCCJ IN PURSUIT OF A BASKETBALL CAREER, STAR FOLLOWED HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC AND ATTENDED THE INSTITUTE OF PRODUCTION AND RECORDING. "MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE PART MY LIFE. AS A KID, MY OLDER SISTER ALWAYS HAD US LISTENING TO TUPAC, NAS AND CRUCIAL CONFLICT HEAVY. ME, MY BRO AND MY COUSINS CREATED THIS GROUP CALLED "6 FEET DEEP" AND WE MADE TAPES AND VIDEOS OF US RAPPING . AS A SHORTY, I WOULD SING LEAD FOR THE CHURCH CHOIR AND COMPETE ALL OVER CHICAGO. THAT'S AROUND THE FIRST TIME I EVER DOWNLOADED FRUITY LOOPS AND STARTED MESSING WITH BEATS, BUT AFTER IPR I REALLY BECAME A BEAST WITH IT. I WAS DEDICATED." 

LOS ANGELES AND BEYOND

STAR'S DEDICATION PAID OFF, ATTRACTING THE ATTENTION OF BRIAN "CHAMPTOWN" HARMON, A DETROIT HIP - HOP STAPLE WHO PLAYED A ROLE IN THE CAREERS OF LEGENDS SUCH AS EMINEM AND KID ROCK. STAR SENT OVER A DEMO OF TRACKS THAT HE HAD BEEN WORKING ON WITH THE THEN GROUP MEMBERS OF SOUNDSICK.  THE UNDENIABLE SOUND AND LOOK OF THE GROUP LEAD TO A LOS ANGELES MEETING WITH DON WILSON AND THE SUBSEQUENT ACQUISITION TO HIS UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP IMPRINT LABEL, CANOROUS RECORDS.

 

FOLLOWING HIS SIGNING, STAR RELOCATED TO LOS ANGELES, ALSO TAKING TO THE SILVER SCREEN APPEARING IN OVER 100 MAJOR PRODUCTIONS, FROM MUSIC VIDEOS TO FEATURE FILMS AND DOCUMENTARIES.
