RIP ONE TAKE CONTEST ENTRY
Ryan Bradley, born and raised in South St. Louis, fell in love with hip hop music at an early age. He began writing witty rhymes in middle school, and would later form a group with childhood friends. After a few years of recording miscellaneous tracks both with and without the group, time and focus was taken off of music and directed towards his family. Although he has recorded here and there, it wasn't until now he started trying to put things back together and give it a solo run. The name RIP was given in reference to the acronym Rest In Peace, due to the artists ability to metaphorically 'murder' instrumentals.
