Ringolero first got into music in 1989 when he was inspired by New York legends such as Big Daddy Kane as well as reggae acts such as Ninjaman. He began writing and penning lyrics before starting life out as a drum’n’bass MC back in 1997 regularly killing the airwaves of London’s top stations Rude FM, Fundamental FM and Breeze FM.
He continued to create a buzz for his name and then at the turn of the century decided to go back to his original Hip-Hop roots releasing the single ‘Master Minds Of Deception’ with a group called Amen Voyager. He continued to push music out on an underground level making an experimental eight track mix with Synista Hustla entitled ‘Hammer Verse Of Horrors’.
It was 2005 that really saw Ringolero make moves in the Hip-Hop world after teaming up with long time cohort Scamer to form and create The Risc and released the highly-acclaimed ‘After The Massacre’, which was a diss CD aimed at and gunning for 50Cent. This would be the blueprint and a CD that paved the way for Ringolero’s exciting and diverse solo debut CD ‘How To Be An Emcee’ on his newly formed record label Jonringo Enterprises.
