The music of Detroit has always been a barometer for the city’s well doing. The sounds of Motown & Doo Wop served as a sign of prosperity, with even brighter days to come as they permeated from radio speakers. As the fortunes of The Big Three crumbled, the city began to fall into a darker period and the music coming from the city and surrounding areas adjusted accordingly. Pontiac, MI native Ro Spit wants to do something about this.
Borrowing the soulful, melodic vibes of Mayer Hawthorne’s A Strange Arrangement Ro devised A Different Arrangement. As a straight forward MC who relies strictly on his words to impress you, it doesn’t always sink in right away what he’s doing. Then after a song or two it hits you that he’s doing a little better than most. Repping the Midwest at this year’s A3C music festival Ro hopes to open a few more eyes and perhaps coincide with some good news for his adopted city.
