Artist Bio

Leroy Hirdler aka Lil RoiBoi started making music at the age of 15. What started out as just a hobby kicking it with his friends free styling in his basement, quickly grew into something a lot more. He began making songs using instrumentals from already popular songs and recording them on tapes with a small boom box. After realizing this was something he desired and truly loved, LRB and Smokey got serious and started a whole new movement in saint cloud's hip-hop scene. They began collaborating with other local mc’s eventually meeting Crime Dogg of 612 Records. Soon after Crime Dogg saw the potential in the two young artists and signed them to his label (612 Records LLC.) Now as a rising local talent Cloud City Boyz got together with Distant Strangers and Tew Tone of St. City ENT. To form KOC or Kings Of the Cloud. LRB decided to leave 612 Records and pursue things on his own with CCB. A few days later he signed with City House Records. LRB is consider to have a calm and mellow style, with a different swag than most from the Midwest. Some compare him with snoop dogg or devin the dude for how he comes so smooth with it. With that smoothness, he also has the ability to get hyped up and get the crowd pumped up with him, coming with a hard strong flow. He would usually look for a laid back beat but loves to switch it up with a party hit or club banger to get the crowd involved. His influences in rap are major artists like; Tec N9ne, 2pac, Treach, BIG, Busta Rhymes, Bone Thugs and many others.
