Twenty-one-year-old Ostrava rapper Rohony used to be a promising footballer who went from the grass to the studio. His trademarks - the number 10 on his left temple (his football number), original flow and vocabulary. He graduated from the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Ostrava. He comes from Serbia, grew up near Trebic. In 2019, he debuted an EP entitled Evolution, the thesis work of director Lukáš Zálešák, Rohony's senior colleague from the Ostrava studio, who handles all of Rohony's visuals and music videos. In the same year he also performed in front of 1500 people at Addict in Prague. Last year he released his second EP titled Viper. A distinctive image and lyrics, an avant-garde approach, inspiration from contemporary art, but also a love of the mainstream - these are Rohony's hallmarks. Village life and football are intertwined in his work. "At home we have cattle, bulls, cows, horses. It's not something I put in, it comes to mind automatically," says the rapper. The track T90 is named after a model of kicks.
His track Skita is considered a masterpiece; he and Zálešák chose a cow shed for the video, unusual for rap music. Rohony's work intersects themes of archetype, artifact and abstraction, and is filled with sexual desire, romance and emotional strain. "In the studio, they taught me to justify my stuff, and it doesn't matter if it's rap or clowns," Rohony says.
