It’s 2014 and Hick-Hop has arrived! Roy Dee Thorne Jr. honed his skills performing in clubs in North Carolina while attending NC SU and NCCU. The weekends were booked up in recording studios. He got his break in Hollywood, CA, when he hooked up with Coolio’s producers, Khamillion Productions. Wron G, Warren G’s manager, made it happen and his demo got in the hands of a veteran entertainment attorney. Within weeks, Roy Dee was in Atlanta working with super People of the SOUTH, Organized Noize, Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon, Rico Wade, Cee lo, Sleepy Brown.

“Boomin In My Truck”

The Artist previously scored chart action for 30 weeks, reaching #3 on the single charts, as well as Independent, heat seekers, R&B etc. This rank on the Billboard charts and gave him the opportunity to tour the south — soaking up what he knew all along – Break the Mold.

The industry put him in the category of Hip Hop/Rap but his moniker was Po White Trash and the Trailerpark Symphony. In his music, Roy was reflecting on his days of growing up country – not in the inner cities. “Really, It felt like putting on a hat that was too small” says Roy Dee. “I was agreeing with radio and industry super weights that I was not from the streets and did not deserve a “ghetto pass” to have a career. Diddy told my label, when looking for a radio promo team and record pools at his restaurant in Atlanta…”I would have a career when Hillbillies Rap, shittt…..Redneck’s FLY…. *+#!*^

Mismanaged visions between Roy Dee and his former label, made them part ways. You know the story! Stuck in Houston, he couldn’t work or perform under Paperwork for years. He quit. Roy Dee went to the rodeo and heard Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem” and fell to the floor. “My Hillbilly King!!!! Who Wrote the song?” says Roy Dee. Roy rushed home and it was Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert with Jason Aldean. Well, Colt Ford and Shannon Houchins opened the doors to Average JOE Entertainment a couple years before. “I was so out of touch. I just knew skinny jeans and rubber sunglasses with no lenses were the in thing…very confusing! I went in the studio that next week and knocked some dust off, now I am here,” says Roy Dee.

He does not know where he is going to land but Roy Dee’s Hick Hop Truck Thump is Boomin’ my Truck.
