Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. Robert “Renaissance” Holborough has always had a rebellious mind frame. The son of a police lieutenant and a pastor, Renaissance was never allowed to listen to hip-hop; as a matter of fact he often caught beatings for being caught with tapes or cd's containing hip-hop music. It was this upbringing, which led to Renaissance falling in love with hip-hop and deciding that this was something he wanted to do with the rest of his life.
Never initially wanting to become a recording artist it wasn’t until 02-03 that Renaissance actually found his passion for writing music. One listen to any of his tracks and it is clear to see that he is determined to set himself apart from the rest of the city’s carbon copies.
Whether it’s the track “Pay Your Boy No Mind” which expresses his frustration with the current state of affairs in his personal life or the club banger “Unconditional” which speaks to the female listener without disrespecting or degrading them, Renaissance steps away from the stereotype usually given to up and coming artists out of Atlanta.
Currently working on his third project “The Transition”, Renaissance looks to become one of the most influential artists to ever come out of Atlanta.
