Review: Ro$ewood Renegade – ‘Knockin’



The heavy-hitting stage name of Jimmy Brown Jr, Ro$ewood Renegade was born and raised in the creative heart of Austin, Texas. A talented rapper and songwriter with music in his DNA, Renegade has been hard at work carving out his very own musical legacy. After first gaining popularity in high school alongside his brother, Renegade went on to establish his own record label, Kommittee Rich Ent LLC, a move that built the foundation for things to come.


His latest, and arguably most impressive, single to date, ‘Knockin’ arrives as a nuanced metaphor for breaking into the music industry, outlining his trials, tribulations, and eventual successes.


A wonderfully balanced rap release, ‘Knockin’ has been built in waves of complimenting sounds, layering dark, distorted bass tones with delicately placed synth melodies and confident vocal delivery. Offering a tonality and pace that mirrors the overall energy of the track, ‘Knockin’ shines with a power and authenticity that is impossible to deny.



A track that many independent artists will relate to, ‘Knockin’ is an impressive blend of universal sounds and personal messages, creating an impressive showcase of Renegade’s style. You can listen to ‘Knockin’ in full above via Soundcloud, and be sure to head over to Renegade’s website for an exclusive stream of his new mixtape ‘In My Own Lane’.


Score: 8.5/10
