Roy was born and raised in Indianapolis, although he now resides in sunny Orlando with his wife and son. "The Revert" is a 2014 release of mainly southern style hip-hop and follows on from a period of re-branding that Roy undertook with Andy Mineo and Benjah helping. He's shared a stage with big name artists such as Lecrae, Jeremy Camp, Andy Mineo, Pillar, Britt Nicole, Kutless, Tesashii and more. The 'Revert' album has been downloaded over 9000 times and has over 130,000 listens. Roy has a laid back style but with that brings a clarity, dare I say with even a hint of Eminem in his style. He brings some standout tracks like "Bass Low" which is a party breaking-out bass bursting track. There are moments of introspection and personal testimony on "Trust" on which Roy shows his melodic side as well. Tracks like "Take Me Back" also show Roy is as comfortable on east coast tracks as well. "Break In" and "Fly" also show some great variation in beats and production. The powerful "Revert" ends things on a high note.
