You wanted to fuckin’ walk around these roaches. These niggas is roaches. These niggas is mere motherfuckin’ mortals. I’m tryna push you to supreme bein’. You don’t wanna motherfuckin’… You don’t wanna embrace your destiny, you wanna get by. You don’t wanna go into the motherfuckin’ dark where it’s lonely. You can’t handle the motherfuckin’, the pain of the motherfuckin’ not knowin’ when the shit is gonna stop.
You fuckin’ wanna walk around these niggas? What the fuck is their culture? Where the fuck is their souls at? What defines you? These niggas with these fuckin’ silly looks on their faces. You wanna walk around with them or you wanna walk with god, nigga? Make up your goddamn mind.
Fuckin’ wanna talk about fuckin’ jewelries and Bentley’s and Hublot’s and fuckin’ art that niggas ain’t got on their fuckin’ walls and fuckin’ mansions niggas ain’t got. Niggas can’t even pay the IRS, let alone their fuckin’ staff, nigga. You gotta tell the truth, man. The truth’ll set you free, son, the truth will set you free.Sean “Diddy” Combs
He comes from the outskirts of the poverty stricken small town known as Estill, South Carolina. A place with low education rates, high unemployment rates, and the crime rate ain’t far behind. It would seem like escaping the area is unheard of, sort of like Estill itself. Of course growing up we hear “you can be anything you want to be” no matter where we’re from. However when C. Renegade looked around he saw nothing. He saw a bunch of nonodies. Ren wanted to be something. He wanted to be somebody.
In 1998, Ren started scribbling short raps in class and dreamed of a career in Hip Hop. Even at career day in the fifth grade, he tied a blue bandana around his head like 2Pac and told his teacher he wanted to be a rapper. She was the first of many to try and discourage him. Though Ren was quiet he felt it was time to speak up.
Ren’s pleas fell on death ears. With no one to turn to, he learned to produce and record his own music. He put a makeshift studio together, piece by piece. He compiled music, recruited talent and put albums together. He designed his own album covers and flyers to promote his music and sold it out his trunk at school. Basically, he took his career in his own hands.
As Ren grew older, the desire to be a rapper became less and less appealing, but the desire for a career in the entertainment industry grew. Ren doesn’t limit or label himself as just a rapper. Ren is a producer, a budding musician, a song writer, and as he started Muzik Clazz Entertainment, a business man.
Over the years, though a lot has changed, a few things remain the same. Ren is still dreaming and naysayers are still doubting. Though the music speaks for itself, you can’t make anyone listen. Whether anyone listens or not, C. Renegade keeps talking.
