Bronx-based rapper Ron Suno is taking over New York with high-energy drill music and an entertaining online presence. Ron Suno (born Keron Foriest) began rapping at the age of 13, but it was his comedy that originally caused him to go viral: In 2017, he was responsible for the social trends #WeaveChallenge and #RonSunoDance, which helped him gain over half a million Instagram followers in only a matter of months.
In early 2019, Ron began building a buzz as an artist by releasing music videos on YouTube and promoting them on Instagram, which included promising releases like “With My Crew”, “Party On Jump”, and his seven-song EP, “New Boss”.
His breakout came in October with the release of his song, “Pinocchio”, a fierce but fun drill hit that took the Bronx by storm and simultaneously inspired thousands of dance videos on TikTok. In the weeks that followed, the song exploded to nearly 5 million views on YouTube and over 14 million streams across all platforms. Ron plans to capitalize on the success of “Pinocchio” with several upcoming singles, notable collaborations and a debut album in 2020.
