Bio

Rap/Hip-Hop artist Ryland Rose hit international success last year, after his 2016 single, “Almost Famous & Broke” entered the Billboard Viral Charts at #4 and peaked on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts at #5. Now the full album by the same name is available everywhere and it’s already peaked on the iTunes Hip Hop album charts at #4.

Ryland explains, “Half of the album was written before the single “Almost Famous & Broke” was released. The other half was done after everything had happened with the success I had on Spotify and charting on Billboard. At first, it was just a cool name for a song, then I was flying to Sydney to meet with labels and could barely afford a coffee - that’s when the term “Almost Famous & Broke” kind of became my mantra for this album. I found my angle and just channeled in on it for the second half of the record.”

"Almost Famous & Broke is full of gleaming synth-hop — and trap — head-nodders. Make It Up even recalls ‘90s house. But what really distinguishes this debut is Ryland’s wryly clever, and candid, lyricism. In the title track he reveals the realities of #lyfe as an Aussie MC on the hustle.” - Herald Sun ★★★★

Oof, this is top-shelf hip hop. The beat kicks along and those brass stabs really hit the nail on the head. Everything about this is polished and punchy, and I love every second.
