Extended play “Exis,” which was his first endeavor had given him enough recognition in the world of music. The Canadian rapper inspired by the king of pop world Michael Jackson had started creating music when he was just fourteen. Although having a dream to build a successful football career, he then turned to music in his later teenager. His initial two songs “Drama” and “Get You Good” which were aired on Canadian OVO Radio Show gathered the immense attention of the music world. His “Waking at Dawn” enriched with “She knows about me,” “Got Me” and some more made a promise to music lovers. It is no wonder to believe that this young rapper would entertain the innumerable audience with his musical effort in the future days ahead.
He had also founded the Unlock The Underground. His recent endeavor perfectly titled “Say Less” had been of great interest to his fans. It is just the beginning and can be easily apprehended that Roy Wood will gather more wealth in the coming years. Till date, the artist has accumulated more than 400 thousand dollars as his estimated net worth.
Roy Wood was born as Denzel Spencer on 18th April 1996 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. So far the world is not much aware of his parentage and with whom he grew up. We know that Wood has gone to Turner Fenton Secondary School. There he attended class for three years then admitted to the St. Augustine Secondary School to clear the high school. He started off his teenage with a keen interest in football. He wanted to create a career as a successful player. In the high school days as a wide receiver, he got into the team and performed quite appreciably.
Simultaneously Michael Jackson, Nelly, Drake, PartyNextDoor started influencing the young aspirant. But later gradually with several injuries on the field, his interest turned towards music. Initially, his new interest in pursuing music was little difficult, but in the course of time he picked up the qualities of becoming a successful performer. Started up with the choir lessons but soon realized that his talent is matching somewhere else. The artist never went to any college after clearing the campus of his high school in 2014.
He tried his way and through repeated experimentations got into local YCMA to show his talents. His singing ability which was quite distinct from the pure rap gave him special recognition. His lyrics were influenced by his past situations and personal relationships. In the passage of time, he started winning the hearts of his audience; especially the girls were his keen followers. The growing success urged for a stage name. At the first go, he wanted that the world should call him as Pression. The name didn’t work up well, and Woods realized the name is not going with his way. He gave some time to the hallways of the school. At last, he felt better as the world started calling the young aspirant as Roy Woods.
Gradually Woods started gathering confidence and appreciation for his effort. He began his musical career with two fantastic compositions titled “Drama” and “Get You Good.” The songs were featured on the Canadian Radio Show. After a short period, the young talent on 31st July 2015 came up with his first Extended Play titled “Exis.” The compositions were nicely blended with hip-hop genre and the alternative R&B. The production of the EP was featured with President Jeff, Daniel Worthy, and The 90z. Though the release did not make a smash his but on the Top R&B Hip-Hop chart of albums successfully reached #27. The six appreciable tracks on this album are “Innocence,” “Get You Good,” “Jealousy,” “Unleashed,” “Go Go Go” and “Drama.”
Next year, in June Woods, released a single titled “Gwan Big Up Yourself.” The single was meant for his next album claimed 127th rank on the Billboard Top 200. This gave Woods enough confidence before the release of his next musical endeavor. He released his sophomore album titled “Waking at Dawn” which was a perfect equivalence of his debut release. Some of the important figures like Murda Beats, L.A. Chase, Omari Jabari, FrancisGotHeat and some more contributed to the production of this album. Among the 10 tracks of the album, some were highly appreciated by the audience. This includes “She Knows about Me,” “Down Girls,” “Menance,” “Why” “Got Me” and “Sonic Boom.” On the Top R&B Albums, the single reached #11 and went up to the 30th position in his native country.
He has been serving his audience with his efficient skill in writing and compositions. He released another album titled “Nocturnal.” The big release was featured by the eminent guests like Majid Jordan, MadeinTYO and some more. The EP contained 7 tracks which are “Love You,” “Dangerous,” “Chilli Peppers,” “Magic,” “Four Seasons” and “Involved.” The endeavor brought some positive attention of his followers but never got into any prestigious charts.
Along with his busy schedules for the creation of music the artist has also got appreciations for his performance in various concerts. In 2016 on his Unlocked Tour Woods traveled through 26 cities which included Berlin in Germany to Illinois and Chicago in the United States. He had also participated in the Drake & Future’s Summer Sixteen Tour in the same year. Quite evidently the effort yielded a reasonable amount of monitory gain. These tours would also enhance his popularity to a wider range of audience.
The young talent is perhaps concentrating more on his musical life instead of getting into a personal relationship. The question of marriage does not arise at all. It is apprehended that artist is perhaps residing in his hometown. Woods has created a collection of artists under the name “Unlock the Underground.” This includes talents from Toronto as DRIPXXXX. TRIPSIXX. With his official DJ, the group also has the participation of 24hrs, FRVRFRIDAY, JYDN, and others.
