HOW HIP HOP ARTIST REALROUZY BECAME AN UNIMAGINABLE VOICE OF HIS GENERATION

Who Is Realrouzy

Realrouzy born and raised in Moscow, lives there to this day. He has his respected and beloved family – mom, dad and older brother. Musical genes were passed on to him from my father, who at one time also studied music. He played rock and roll. My brother liked rap and he gave me to listen some tracks. That’s why at the moment rap and rock are my favorite genres in music. Realrouzy  is one of the unimaginable artist to mix both Rock & Rap music into perfection. He is one special artist to look out for. As a child, I lived in a ghetto, where it is dangerous to walk at night, especially when you live in Russia. This period in my life taught me to be strong. I have always worked tirelessly and I consider this to be my strongest quality, since those people who work hard and are passionate about their work always achieve what they want. Also, at the moment, besides music, I have hobbies such as hookah. I even work as a hookah master in a HookahPlace franchise as an additional income. I combine hobby and work. I love an active lifestyle and do not like to stay at home. Every time, some parties, new acquaintances are cool for me. At the moment I am 23 and I strive only upward to new discoveries

Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have always been interested in music, because my family did it. In particular, my father, at one time, was a musician and apparently passed it on me by genes. I have an older brother and from childhood he gave me disks with the music that he liked and later on I liked this music too, basically it was rap and old-format rock. Several years later, already at a conscious age, it became interesting to me not only to be a listener, but also to do something of my own, in fact, on this I came to this path.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?

When I started my career I had the nickname “Has” and I promoted it in the runt space. After some time, the managers of another rapper saw me, but he was from Ukraine. They sent me a letter and when I opened it turned out that Ukraine has its own “Has” and they asked either to change the nickname or I will not have the opportunity to perform and promote within this country lol. Actually for this, by the way, I changed my nickname

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

When I first started out, the biggest mistake was that in the first couples of profit from advertising, we can assume that you have achieved everything. In fact, no – there is always room to grow!

What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

At the moment I have released a new track “Clouds” which differs in its sound from my previous works and from everything that is in Russia at the moment. There is no such style in my country yet and I hope it will enter the public. Also, now my team and I are working on a video for this composition, as well as in parallel I am doing a solo album which will be based on my new style!

Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?

The most interesting people with whom I talked are not some specific people, but in general I like to communicate with people who have their own business, who are burning for them – You can learn a lot from such people and in general it is interesting to listen to them. I have a friend who was not originally known as a performer. Once we went for a walk and at that time there was a selection for versus. Versus is such a platform in Russia where online rap battles take place. Actually, we advised him to apply for a joke and HE PASSED! It was unrealistically cool for us and we still remember this moment with joy.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I would advise you not to make yourself out of what you are not. Be real and do what you like. This is what many say, but it is true. Also, every time to throw money into advertising and other moments, nowhere without money. You also need to rest, this is an integral part of life so as not to “burn out” in the business you are doing. You can go on vacation to another city or country – this helps to refresh your thoughts.

You have been blessed with success in a career path that can be challenging. Do you have any words of advice for others who may want to embark on this career path, but seem daunted by the prospect of failure? 

In any business of your life, there is a chance that you will not succeed, right? In any business, the main thing is not to give up, if there is a desire – do.

Can you share with our readers any self-care routines, practices or treatments that you do to help your body, mind or heart to thrive? Kindly share a story or an example for each.

Recently, it has rarely been possible to take care of yourself in terms of health, but if you mean appearance – this is fundamental and one of the important things for me. It’s important to me how I look and that’s why I try to eat right, go to bed on time (though it doesn’t always work out, lol). In fact, there are no rules – the main thing is to feel the style.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

1. Do it in style
2. Promote quality
3. Be a pro of what you produce
4. Don’t feel sorry for the losers
5. Don’t be discouraged

Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?

Be strong and judicious in any situation. It is important not to fall to the bottom in life and stay there.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

There were many such people in my life, from family to friends and casual acquaintances. Just be charismatic and you will be fine.

You are a person of enormous influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

To be honest, I never thought about it, probably just like many of us, I would help homeless or unhappy people – both financially and morally creating some kind of support center for such people.

We are very blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂
