Underground Rapper “Ol Roody” Talks About The Love For His Craft, Sense Of Style and More

Connect with Muzique Magazine @

Ol Roody (Isaac Rood) is an underground American rapper trying to get known, mostly based around flow rap, sad rap, and emotional vibe music. mainly influenced by music from Eminem, 2pac, Lil Peep, Juice WRLD & alternative/punk rock artists like Blink 182 and The Killers.

How did you come by your stage name?

Ol Roody is just a name that my buddies in the Army used to call me, a play on my last name and I guess it just stuck.

When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?

I was always a passionate singer in my shower, and one I really upset someone who I respect a lot and I made a song for her. And that’s when I decided that I really liked it and wanted to do it more.

To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?

I love many artists, Eminem, Lil Peep, Mac Miller, Juice WRLD, 2PAC, all of them are unique in their own ways and all of them really make me feel something different when I listen to their tracks. I like to think my style pulls something from each to create something special.

On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?

HeartU is my first mixtape and currently has about 10 unfinished songs that are fully written, but not yet fully mixed. 3 songs are already released on my youtube channel.

I think the real inspiration for HeartU is various forms of love, aggressive love, love lost, nostalgic love, love for yourself. And just a variety of styles to my music. making each track have something different. I think when it’s fully released, there will be something for everyone in there.

What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?

I struggle a lot with personal issues that my friends are all-too-familiar with. They get to preview several revisions of my tracks before I release them and I know I drive them crazy haha. Especially, my mom, I think I must call her 3 or more times daily.

I often struggle with letting things go unfinished, and there’s a lot in my current tracks I wished I could do better but its a learning journey. I think that my greatest attribute is the same, though. I don’t release anything unless I feel like I would listen to it. I strive to do well and I think my listeners will appreciate that.

Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?

I am the best at being myself, and I think that each piece of my music is a part of me. So in terms of me putting myself on the beat, yes. I am the best at what I do.

What are your plans for the near future?

I plan on fully releasing my mixtape, HeartU and then starting looking for some shows to perform in. I have some really cool tracks I’m excited about, and I’m excited to do live performances. I also have a few artists who are underground as well who I really want to collaborate with and hopefully spit some fire into some tracks.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?

My mother, she’s always believed in me. My friends and family who support me, the great artists who came before me, who inspire me and most of all, my fans who are on this adventure right with me. Together till the end

How can fans find you?

My youtube channel primarily, youtube.com/olroody and of course my twitter @Olroody, and my Instagram, _olroody_ and my Soundcloud is olroody

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?

Keep driving on. Never stop. Never quit because if you quit once, you’ll always quit.
