Ronnie “Jey Ahr” Woods is an up and coming hip-hop artist Born and Raised in Long Beach, California. The spelling of his stage name is just one thing that makes him different. Pronounced J.R. but spelled Jey Ahr meaning “Just Ron”, although very different it is also very straightforward. This quite simply is the best way to describe him and his music.
He fell in love with the hip-hop culture at a very young age with influences like Notorious B.I.G, Tupac Shakur, and Rakim just to name a few. He began writing rhymes with his cousin Derrion “Spadez” Woods. Together with help from older brother Lamaur “Big L Mar” Woods and family friend Charles “Rayon” Jennings they formed, what was then known as AUE (Artist United Entertainment). This grouping of young men furthered his love for music and inspired him more to grow as an artist.
In 2006 Jey Ahr learned that he was about to become a father so, he put his aspirations on hold and joined the military to be able to support his family. After a few years of putting his passion on hold Jey Ahr could no longer resist. He began writing and recording with his friend James Bryant. Together they formed the group Fam Bam.
Now as a solo artist Jey Ahr is coming at the world full force, ready to give it his all. When asked by spectators, what made you really get into music? A very confident Jey Ahr replies, “I knew I could be better than the people that were out then, and I still feel that way now.” Although some may perceive this as cocky when you listen to his music you will see that it is just pure confidence.
After our interview with Jey Ahr, we’ll be up to all of our usual fun including “Brewskis” Beer Tasting sponsored by DrinksWinesSpirits.com, sports talk, rants and more.
