When you mention the name R.Fusion, you may think “is this some kind of science theory?” Not at all “Fusion” in science terms means “the act or procedure of liquefying or melting by the application of heat”.  Often being compared to Ludacris, Tupac, or Scarface R. Fusion has a unique sound that makes him stand out on his own.  He doesn’t speak about money, cars and the wealth fame gives you, but instead talks about the real side of life and experiences. He speaks a message of faith and overcoming.  After he graduated Roseville High School, he did not attend college. He continued his journey of ups and downs being independent with his self-made label called “RATED*R PRODUCTIONZ ” with help from his high school sweetheart  and model, Angie Star. Until this day he is has worked with industry A&R’s, did graphic design for major artists, and worked closely with DTP to help council him in the right direction. Now teamed up with VIP Management, his has released a single “Rock A Bye.”  The Twin City rapper makes a quote his pastor Richard Pittman of House of Praise said to him, “a set back is only a set up for your come back”. Is the industry ready for a profound man like R.Fusion? We will see!

IAA:  What is your music background?

R. FUSION: Church was and still is my foundation and how I found love for music. I use to be in the youth and adult choir plus emcee Youth Days. My uncle “Classic”  took me and my two brothers under his wings and taught us the rap game when I was 11. I have been going hard ever since.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

R. FUSION: The reason I want to record and release my own music is because God blessed me with a gift to speak and reach the attention of the youth and old alike. I don’t want to keep my stories to myself. I use my tools and get my word out through the most popular way- music

IAA:  What are your songs about?

R. FUSION: My songs are about change, trials, and how God can bring you out of situations. I tell stories about what goes on in the church and secular world. I talk about how easy it is to get caught up and influenced by the nature of the world today. You have to stay focus, make your money, have fun and do you. Also I’m an energetic guy so there is some party tracks and I also have sweet songs for women to relate to as well.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

R. FUSION: I want to lead my fans towards God because he gets the credit for everything I do.  He increases my income, fans, and connections.  As a rap artist, I want to make sure that not only support me,  but follow God as well, because he is the reason I am able to do music.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

R. FUSION: My musical influences include, my uncle “Classic”, my bro Pierre RAPhal, my bro Omario, my bro Kid Jetty, Gospel Gangstaz, Ludacris, Scarface,Tupac, M.O.P. ,and Tyga.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

R. FUSION: My music is G-Hop(Gospel Hip Hop), its energetic, raw and un-cut, attention grabber, and poetry in motion at its fullest.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?

R. FUSION: I spit gospel rap. Not too many youth and people in today’s society are trying to go that route because they see “Hip Hop” as the most popular.  They see girls, cars, diamonds and money and figure if they do what they see, they will get all of that stuff.  I set myself apart. I got real with myself, and stayed true to myself.  I became different and did not follow the crowd because God made us different.  “Hip-Hop” wouldn’t lose its authenticity if everyone stayed true to themselves.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on

R. FUSION: The Green City” dropping this summer, this is going to be a big project to blast throughout the industry, so stay tuned.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years

R. FUSION: I want to have my own clothing line, night club, and restaurant. I also want to become an actor and model. I want to sign artist of every genre  to my label. I also want to have my own T.V. show, own a NBA basketball team, own and sponsor a basketball league for kids/adults, and do whatever else is God’s will for me

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

  15. clarence says:


  16. Rodney says:


  17. Nick says:

  18. Missy says:

    I love your FusionTV videos! They are so funny

  19. becca says:

    I know his videos are awsome

  20. lizzy says:

    I can’t wait to hear his new music

  21. brad says:

    Nice work, you’re proving these haters wrong

  22. sam says:

    This nigga ain’t shit

  23. troy vicious says:

    I can rap better than this nigga, straight trash

    • The Defender says:

      You are what you think! And will be what you say! As you down others you let the world know your still immature and not ready for real success thus you will only rise to the degree you promote or down others. thus if you think trashy thoughts then thats all you will be and will produce is trashy raps! pretty soon you’ll start stinking up the industry and you will be thrown out with the rest of the trash talkers!

  24. sam says:

    You seen that nigga’s youtube videos troy, lol

    • The Defender says:

      Looks like your a follower instead of a leader! you’ll reap what you sow! I doubt if you even know what I am talking about! When you slander another persons work you reveal your level of intelligence! Now go to the mirror and look at yourself again and first find out who you are and who made you. Your no better then the words you say and respect you give!

  25. troy vicious says:

    Yea I checked him out, my lil brother rap better than him

    • The Defender says:

      But he’s not in the spotlight!

    • The Defender says:

      Sounds like your upset because they didnt pick you! but then again why would they! You cant even promote another so why would someone promote you. Maybe this is the reason why your struggling with your identity. Troy Vicious? Who are you going to eat up? Are you a cannibal rapper? Have you checked your birth certificate lately? Who gave you that name anyway? Can you rap without using profanity? Have you read the dictionary lately? Are you in college yet? Are you a drop out? Still in High school? Do you get straight A’s? Before you down someone else make sure your stuff is tight first!

  26. Amy says:

    Really Troy? I don’t see you on an magazine article online…..

  27. Tony says:

    Your graphics are sick! We should do business together. I will hit you up and we can work something out

  28. Michelle says:

    Keep hating on Fusion, it’s only going to get further in life. Keep up the good work!

  29. Nikki says:

    You do gospel rap but yet you rep Rated R Productions? That doesn’t make sense…..

  30. The Defender says:

    I got your back Rfusion keep doing what you do! Haters never prosper they just push those they hate to higher levels. Love your music!! Your graphics are off the chain!!
