RetroI$Awesome (R$A), born January 12, 1994, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer from Plainfield, New Jersey.
R$A released his debut mixtape "Awe$ome Expectations", in 2013. With little promotion, the mixtape gained major success and led to recognition from Snoop Dogg on the 32nd episode of his online show, "Underground Heat". In 2014 R$A followed up with his second mixtape Cuban Linx, which was also well received by critics and debuted on major Hip Hop platforms such as The Source Magazine, HotNewHipHop, Respect Magazine, and many others. Grinding off the success of his second release, in 2015, R$A released his third mixtape titled Avant Garde. The mixtape debuted as one of the featured mixtapes of the week on LiveMixtapes' IndyTapes, making it Retro's second consecutive mixtape to reach some of Hip Hop's biggest music platforms as it has received multiple praises from music critics.
Coming into his own as a producer, R$A delivered a collaboration project titled "72-10", with super producer Lex Luger. The project was met with tremendous success and earned R$A many great mentions in mainstream media. R$A has ran through 2016/ 2017 as if he is ready to take over. In late 2016, R$A dropped "32 DGRZ", a precursor to his most recent project "Fountain of Ice.", which released April of 2017. With his sights set on breaking into the industry in 2017, be on the look out for the R$A name.
