MC Ren

MC Ren (born on June 14, 1969 in Los Angeles, California) joined up with the groundbreaking gangsta rap group N.W.A when he finished his senior year at Dominguez High School in Compton. By contributing hard-hitting vocals on the Straight Outta Compton (1989) album, Ren soon found himself as a very valuable member of the group, after Ice Cube departed in 1989.

MC Ren (born on June 14, 1969 in Los Angeles, California) joined up with the groundbreaking gangsta rap group N.W.A when he finished his senior year at Dominguez High School in Compton. By contributing hard-hitting vocals on the Straight Outta Compton (1989) album, Ren soon found himself as a very valuable member of the group, after Ice Cube departed in 1989.

After becoming the first hardcore rap group to gain mainstream success, with Niggaz4Life reaching the number one spot on Billboard in 1991, financial conflict between Dr. Dre and Ruthless Records led to the group disbanding. MC Ren released his debut EP, titled Kizz My Black Azz, with the help of Eazy-E in 1992. During the remainder of the 1990's, MC Ren would drop solo LP's such as Shock of the Hour, The Villain in Black, and Ruthless for Life. Throughout this time, MC Ren, along with the likes of Dre, Warren G, Eazy-E, Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Tupac, was instrumental in pioneering what would become known as 'G Funk' - a direct evolution from the N.W.A. sound. This sound can actually be traced back as far as the 1987 N.W.A release 'Dopeman'. However it wasn't until the N.W.A group split, that the likes of MC Ren, Dre and Eazy developed their own brand of G Funk.

In 2009, MC Ren finished his fifth studio album titled Renincarnated, which was released under his own record label Villain Entertainment on October 31, 2009 « hide
