Ask around the Detroit area and people will tell you Ro Spit has his hometown of Pontiac, MI on lock. In case anyone needed a reminder, the Yaktown representative reinforces his clout throughout his new “Self-Titled (Who Got It?)” video. Casually coming correct via a chin-up, automatic flow, Ro uses heavy-handed production from Young RJ (Slum Village) to assert his authority for unaware and unappreciative souls. The track itself is an audible slap to the back of your head, while the video is a front-facing finger shake. Ro Spit’s long-awaited IVLife... project drops in July!

Ro Spit Online:
It’s one thing to make a name; it’s a totally different thing to make a lane. Hip hop artists have always been regional, the same way that NASCAR drivers generally hail from the southern locations; sure you can blossom from anywhere, but it just doesn't resonate as well. So how do you get your message out to the world when their ears are pointed elsewhere? If you are Ro Spit you become a champion at home, then you conquer the world. Being crowned at home however, isn't automatic; it requires the synergy of the community and fine tuning the homegrown nuances of hip-hop music that Ro Spit has bopped to for years.
The multi-talented Roland “Ro Spit” Coit started at the roots deejaying parties across the Metro Detroit area including the iconic St. Andrews/The Shelter, eventually grasping the sound hip hop crowds love to hear. Amidst his deejay sets, Coit wrote rhymes as well, a testament to his insatiable work ethic. His launch-pad arrived in the form of his cousin, One Be Lo, whom he connected with through Binary Star. A duo project with long time friend Terron “Illite” Calmese entitled The Forgotten Chosen would ensue.
In an effort to present his material Coit became a ubiquitous performer, rocking mics at venues across Metro Detroit area, Chicago, and Ohio. He vastly expanded his fandom eventually opening national acts including The Clipse, Wale, and Talib Kweli as well as performing with seasoned veterans such as DJ Premier and Slum Village.
From a kid growing up in Pontiac Michigan imitating his favorite emcees, to a national performer Ro Spit has helped shoulder the re-branding of Michigan hip hop and saw his future before he knew it. At home in Michigan he’s referred to as a “Champion” a tagline his highly acclaimed sneaker boutique “Burn Rubber” coined, looks like the “shoe” fits.
Ro Spit had a solid foundation with his inaugural release The OH S#!T Project . Moving forward, from production to lyrical content, everything has been focused on shattering the proverbial “Glass Ceiling”. “Spit” managed to keep inspirational company working with Grammy award winning artist Dwele, Freeway, Phil Ade, John Connor, and Black Milk. His latest composition, The Glass Ceiling Project, is an ode to his growth as an emcee and is guaranteed to push him forward to the next level.
