The wait’s over,  baby! Introducing RoQ’y TyRaiD, a.k.a. “Hip-Hop’s Answer”!  Twenty-two years of age, RoQ’y, government name Jacob Raiford,  has been striving to achieve a level of artistry many have thought to have faded away in the wake of the new millennium.  While the title of  “lyricist” is often misused in the Hip-Hop industry, anyone who’s ears are blessed with the opportunity to hear this young man’s unique mixture of wordplay, wittiness, originality,  brazen yet smooth delivery, controversial subject matter, and charisma will proclaim RoQ’y TyRaiD a “lyricist’s lyricist” without a shadow of doubt.

Having grown up across Southern California, and relocating to Phoenix, AZ at the age of 18, he has used his placement in several vastly different environments to develop a unique outlook on life, which he boldly broadcasts throughout his music he dubs “Realirap”, a No-BS, common sense , joe-the-plumber-esque subgenre of Hip-Hop music everyone can and will relate to.  Songs such as  “Podium”, “Turn That Sh– Off”,  and the awe-inspiring “Zeitgeist” and “Addendum” are all revolutionary in their own right.


Only rapping for five years, RoQ’y TyRaiD under his former moniker J RoQ has already accumulated over 20,000 sales in the Independent Street Market across the South West region of the United States and abroad, using every resource available from his own hands to the United Postal Service. Donning the name RoQ’y TyRaiD in late 2008, he has completed yet another stage in his evolution. Embark with him on the journey to restore Hip-Hop music to it’s former glory!
