Single Review: Ro$ewood Renegade – Knockin

Ro$ewood Renegade is the stage name of Jimmy Brown Jr, a born-and-raised Austin, Texas rapper and songwriter with an extensive musical family. Several of his family members have achieved success individually, and Brown aims to follow suit by carving out his own path. Indeed, he has, having initially gained local popularity in high school alongside his brother through the duo Double or Nuttin, and later on as a solo artist with manager Phil Jackson, through the establishment of his own record label Kommittee Rich Ent LLC.

Brown’s latest single is “Knockin’,” which, in combination with its cover art, makes use of a clever metaphor centering on the difficulties in breaking into the music industry. The single’s beat is well-balanced, with the distortion of its bass foundation functioning cleanly alongside the tiptoe of the lead synth melody. As Brown’s tonality and delivery suit the type of involvement that is typical for modern hip hop, there’s certain purity about how it sits in the mix — dry and raw, while detailing his rollercoaster of roadblocks — that demonstrates kinship with his listeners as well as it insinuates the reality of the situation. When all of its factors are considered, this track ends up working competently as an opener for the general challenges of today’s music industry, and its placement in a future full-length concept would be ideal.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
