R.O.T

Song Title: Tonight
Artist: R.O.T.

Bio: Founding R.O.T. members Sam and Rob have known each other since grade school. By the time they moved to high school, Sam had already put together an old computer, mic, and simple audio editing software. He would make beats and Rob would rhyme. With that, a hunger for rap success was born.

Judas joined the fledging rap group after meeting in high school. Sam and Rob were impressed with his rhymes. Then they met Steele. After Steele spit his first lyric - R.O.T. would be a set group of four from then on.

Inspired by the vocal talents of Eminem, Big Pun, and Tupac, R.O.T. would spend many days of the week developing their skills. They knew a huge challenge lay ahead if four white guys were to gain any measure of respect in an industry typically characterized by black performers. But that respect was to come soon enough.

Today, Sentury Sam has many beats under his belt. Acting as primary producer, Sammy layers thoughtful beats with piano inspired riffs and hints of pop influenced hooks.

R.O.T. never fails to bring to the recording studio brutally honest rhymes and harmonic soulful cues. Lyrics deal with emotional issues of being raised in broken homes, quenching for fame, and gaining respect in the hip-hop world. Sincere emotions and introspection flow through each of their songs.

With Sam's beats, the group put together their own demo in 2003. They sent a few samplers to indie labels, even a major or two. But the group didn't hear anything back. Undeterred, R.O.T. would go back to Sam's house to develop beats and write rhymes - always with the goal in mind of improving their sound and flow. A new, fresh take on the Canadian urban music scene is about to emerge.

Exposed to street life and the system at an early age with her father in and out of incarceration, her mother struggled to provide stability. Home life was turbulent and as an only child, writing became a way to release her thoughts and truly express herself. Introduced to rap music during its classical years influenced by greats like KRS1, Gangstar, Tribe Called Quest and Nas the love affair began.

At the same time began the rebirth, the pages of poetry transformed becoming lyrics and songs. Without realizing Sam began developing a skill that would essentially become her passion.

Through the mid to late 90’s Sam worked on various project with different artists and production teams. It wasn’t until the start of the millennium when Sam re-connected with fellow wordsmith Righteous.
