R-Stonze 'Holding Back The Tears '

Ryan D’Mario Whetstone doesn’t seek to be better than the next man. He doesn’t look at high piers as competition. All he wants to do is set goals in his lifetime, and strive to achieve them.

He’s a dedicated businessman, CEO of a fully functional entertainment company which he calls “Stakk Money Ent.” Ryan expands his reach into various fields such as music, graphic design, videography, photography, even publishing books. R-Stonze is the determined, witty, and sometimes an outlandish emcee.

Stonze whole objective is to give you a message, or teach you something, no matter the concept of his songs. He prides himself on adding that “touch of reality” to his songs, creating a unique feel for the listener. You have to share the same hunger to realize the work he really puts in as an artist alone.

Street music influenced by karma, blended with intelligence, with a splash of confidence sums up R-Stonze’s music. This is a new day and age for the music scene. Cleveland is a city full of opportunity to the eye of the beholder. So many greats either came from there, or they got their big break in Cleveland.
