Q-and-A: Local rapper Lil Ronny Mothaf talks eats and beats in Dallas
It's worth noting he's called the Booty Man.
DALLAS Dallas has been creating massive dance songs since Goldfinger busted on the scene with “Scheek Fool” in 1992. The last generation of Dallas dances which included the “Dougie,” the “Stanky Leg," "South Dallas Swag,” and the “Nature Walk” have made room for the latest sensation out of the Triple “D” –- Lil Ronny Mothaf.
To see how serious his buzz is, do a search on YouTube and see how many of his fans have uploaded videos twerking and jerking to Lil Ronny Mothaf. With a huge online following and a supersized personality, the Booty Man is taking the independent grind to the next level. Here are the results from an interview I had with the kid earlier this week.
soso Active: I been around the Dallas scene for a while and I kept hearing people talk about Lil Ronny lately and I thought they were talking about Lil Ronnie from DSR. It’s like you came from nowhere. Who is Lil Ronny MothaF?
Lil Ronny Mathaf: Lil Ronny Mothaf is a young hustler that has always grinded to get his. I didn’t really come up out of nowhere. I was always in the place to be just very low-key. I didn’t want to feel like a burden to anyone, so I played my position and I worked hard for people to start noticing.
How were you able to build such a strong following on YouTube?
Consistency! I was posting videos of anything, letting people get a look on the real world of me and not any scripted junk. Also, just showing people I am a regular just like you.
How would you describe your music?
I make music that would make any bad mood a good one. It’s filled with real, humor, and all around energy. My genre of music is not hip-hop, or rap, it’s called “Lil Ronny Mothaf.”
Do you want to remain independent or are you shooting for a major deal?
I really wanna be independent, that way I can become my own boss. But if God has something else planned for me, then only time will tell.
What is inspires you to make music?
My mother, watching the struggle and basically just not wanting to go through that again. That’s why I don’t rap about being sad, depressed, or down-and-out stuff. I lived that life already and now I’m focused on the future. Also, the passing of my good friend/brother Jarami “JT guaranteed to wreck” Thomas just showed me that I really need to strive for my dreams. He gave it his all until the Lord called him. I feel as if I can finish his legacy!
What is one thing that most people don’t know about you that you would like them to know?
I’m really not a people person, so when I get up there in front of all those people I do it because I love it. It’s more of a feeling, I’m not just doing because I have to.
Where is your favorite place to eat at in Dallas and why?
BTW –- Salute to all DJs playing my music and all my fans requesting my music. Much love to the city of Dallas and Forth Worth, Texas for supporting me and holding me down from day one. Also shout out to my label FamLife Entertainment, LLC, my manager Pookie (Urban South) and SoSoActive.com for this interview. Make sure you follow me on twitter now at @LilRonnyMothaF and check out my videos on YouTube at LilRonny. Call your local stations and request my music "C Ya Wurk," "Booty," or "Circle" right now.
