... ... R.O.C - The IndieFunda Project


Chris "ROC" McDowell was born and raised in the Blue Ridge area of North Carolina. In 2003, his mother passed away from Breast Cancer, which she had fought courageously for 11 years. Not having a strong relationship with his father, led him to be taken in by a new family which he has now been a part of for 4 years. Being in a healthier and more stable environment allowed him to chase and pursue his dream of being a rapper. He began in a local group of 6 named "The Legion of Goons." His hometown began to recognize his talents and he established himself as an artist for the first time. He moved to Lexington, KY in the fall of 2010 where he attended the Univeristy of Kentucky and played football. Being raised in a "bleed blue" atmosphere for sometime influenced him to make a cover song to Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" titled Blue and White for his school. The song became a instant hit at UK and was played in the basketball arena after numerous games. Staying focused on his school work became an issue blinded by his desire for music. He linked up with a local promoter Calvin Mattox who helped R.O.C develop and master his sound. Together they released R.O.C's first mixtape titled "Perfectly Imperfect" in May of 2011. "Down for me" and "College Life" seem to be two of the many favorites of the mixtape. While being on the road of becoming a mainstream artist, he and his team are already in the planning of his next mixtape. Be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for R.O.C (RapOverChris) in the near future.
