Biography

The Passion of Innocence Unspoiled…R-STONZE

So when you’re young…22 years of age…and you live in the cold environmental and economic climate of North Eastern Ohio, finding a route to the realization of your secret dreams can be tough. Very tough.

But the truly committed persevere.

That’s kind of the story of one Ryan D’Mario Whetstone: AKA: “R-Stonze.”

Yeah, he’s young. And, yeah, he’s from a disadvantaged area of the U.S., but that’s never stopped the truly gifted before, and isn’t likely to stop R-STONZE. Born in Harlem, NY, he calls Cleveland home, now, and he calls to the various aspects of life there, in his music.

In 2005 he had the presence of mind to create his own fledgling label, StaKK Money Ent., complete with publishing…something most artists of his age wouldn’t have a clue about…and is represented via ASCAP. No small task. But that reflects his intelligence and sensitivity, as well as his innate business sense.

Perhaps that’s what genuinely sets him apart from the sea of Rap-Star-Wanna-Bes out there. It’s that sensitivity, that observant quality within his personality, that sets his works apart. Yes, he sees and comments on the day-to-day horrors of 21st Century American urban existence: drug dealing, gun play and the gut-wrenching drone of life. But it goes way beyond all of that. R-Stonze’s able to reach out and express for his generation, ALL of the aspects of young urban life.
