From: FL, United States
Born Ricardo Antonio Rodriguez April 8, 1979 in Washington Heights (Dub H) the Dominican Republic of NYC. The conditions in his family would not allow for new life so he was sent to a humble, caring and loving, Dominican family. There he was raised in the strong culture and atmosphere of Latin music. He would begin experimenting with his own sound of R&B and Hip-Hop realizing his love for creating sound at age 11. At this tender age he tried to learn to read music, but was unable to focus on strict rules of notes. Mr. Original, Fresh-Air, and The New Formula are only a few names used to describe “PRO” by some of todays top A & R’s and artists. There began the journey.
Raised with almost no common interest in his family music culture, PRO created his own culture through creativity and developed his own perspective when viewing the rest of the world. At 14yrs old PRO was doing work wit Cut It Up Def Records, also the launching pad for platinum producer Jim Jonsin. There he worked wit Splack Pack and other freestyle projects. Then signed to an indie record company owned by Freestyle artist Jonny O. Unfortunately his company fell apart and left PRO back at the drawing board. Fortunately it was the very thing that drove him to take matters into his own hands. Since High School he developed and still maintains a faithful following delivering fire production to unsigned and signed artist from Florida to California.
Under the radar for all this time to the public, now the producer, artist, poet, and actor, is ready to be released. Driven by his own desperation to express, PRO is becoming one of the most widely used entities in the industry and now recognized as an up and coming artist/producer and former member of Drum Majorz with Gorilla Tek, working with the likes of Universal, Universal Latino, Poe Boy, Bad Boy, and Shadyville. Now he is the "Go To" Producer for many other music industry organizations and has scored 7 indie films to date. He is also a member of 2010's most talked about Wu-Tang Affiliate Group Wu WATCHMEN.
The answer is right there, wrapped in plastic, downloaded, viewed, and heard along with his soul. You will find PRO is merely that missing or hidden part of you and now he is ready to finally complete this puzzle.
“What you put in a box will stay in a box....live life outside of it. Cuz in the end when this life is over, we all get the chance 2 go right back into one”.
