Don’t Quit Your Day Job – Billy Roadz


WEIGH IN: Should Billy Roadz Quit his day job?


The Hip-Hop culture has manifested itself through music, dance, and fashion among other facets. For Newark native Billy Roadz, his love for Hip-Hop began with break dancing. But during junior high school, flocking to the neighborhood record shop for a daily dose of rap battles created a passion for music that would change Billy’s life forever. He soon joined forces with some neighborhood friends, and the group Skilled Assassins’ was formed.

Testing their skills by performing at Above The Rim basketball games and local clubs and parties, Skilled Assassins’ notoriety and street credibility grew. They became the opening acts for such notable Hip-Hop groups as Smif n Wesson, RedMan & Method Man, and former Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon the Chef & Ghost Face Killer. Prepared to take his career to the next level, Billy decided to leave the group

Dedicated to his craft, Billy Roadz continued writ-ing and performing. He eventually formed another group, STR’s (Stone Town Rebellers), and changed his artist name to Young Blood. This would serv as a focal point in his music career, as he formulated who he was as an artist. His talent and work ethic would soon pay off as his buzz created opportunities for him to work with the likes of Derrick Angeletti, Mat Life, and producer Charlemagne. With most of the spotlight on him, the decision was made that he would become a solo artist.

With crime and violence at an all time high in Newark, the name Young Blood brought unwanted attention with gang affiliation, something he wasn’t about. He changed his name to Billy Roadz, derived from his real name and symbolic of his musical journey. 1n 2005, Billy released his debut mix-tape “Newarktel” which showed the transition from Young Blood to Billy Roadz. He followed up in 2006 with his sophomore release “Go Hard, Go Home.” He continued to perform at various ven-ues throughout the Tri-State Area and in 2007 the single “Damn Shorty” was released through Digiwaxx.

In May 2009, Billy partnered up with three business affiliates and created 4Mil Ent, a New York based entertainment and recording company. Since completing a show stopping performance this past July at the Texas Summer Music Conference, Billy Roadz is back in the studio working diligently on his debut album, “Street, Strength, and Struggle.” From music echoing the struggles of the tough streets of Newark to a gospel tune sung in a down south church, Billy Roadz isn’t afraid to change the direction of Hip-Hop. He is dedicated to cultivating the youth, and stands by his motto “Give them what they want, and then give them what they need.” He offers music lovers the dynamics of his creative capabilities and a fresh, appealing new sound and style.

  4. “Thanks for your blog post. I would also love to say a health insurance specialist also works for the benefit of the actual coordinators of a group insurance coverage. The health broker is given an index of benefits needed by a person or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker does indeed is try to find individuals or perhaps coordinators which usually best fit those needs. Then he shows his recommendations and if each party agree, the actual broker formulates a binding agreement between the 2 parties.”
