: Born September 8, 1986 — Born again June 4, 2010. This was the day RYNE penned his first ever stanzas in the form of rap. That very moment it was soliloquized, it changed the course of his life forever. With his passion for philosophy coalesced with influences such as Yasiin Bey, Sam Cooke, Lauryn Hill, Jay Z, Sade & Nas—help season his authentic brew of hip-hop befitting to be savored by the ears that partake. Hailing from a small town—Oxon Hill, MD—just southeast of Washington, D.C., RYNE emanates a brand of art indicative to the culture garnered by his upbringing and life experiences -- from college to prison. His upcoming project entitled, “Legacy Over Money,” gives the world a glimpse into the mind of RYNE—unmasking the colors on his palette and the canvas of his soul.
