Nowadays everyone wants to have swag. That unspoken something that sets one apart from their peers. While the masses flock to the same places in search of originality, Soope Da Roadrunner watches in amusement, nonchalantly brushing his hair. “They wouldn’t have to worry about finding swag if they had mojo.”
Soope Da Roadrunner has been mastering his craft around the Midwest for the past 10 years. Hailing from Indiana and leaning heavily on corporate strategy with street sensibility, this east side import could very well be the region’s answer to The Game or Jay-Z. He has released a bevy of mixtapes and promotional singles, building his fan base and even scathing the Billboard’s Hot 100 R&B and Hip Hop albums chart. He has also been covered in such national publications as The Source, Vibe, and XXL. One fan offers, “Soope hits topics every listener can relate to. His voice speaks conviction and reality that is totally believable.” The same voice is also making a place for the young luminary outside of music as well.
Not comfortable relying on his mic dreams to ensure stardom; Soope has popped up in some unusual places for an emcee. Not many aspiring anything’s can hold court with a seasoned veteran like Will Smith. However, Soope did just that in the 2008 film 7 Pound, appearing as one of Smith’s doctors. He also starred in Cannes Film Festival winner, The Immigrant, along with the accompanying song and music video. His talents landed him in front of the lens of coveted music video director, Christopher Adams (Lupe Fiasco, The Game, Twista), who directed Soope’s most recent treatment, “Dem Streets.”
Now positioned to execute a winning hand, Soope has joined forces with Chicago’s own Czr and garnered the support of Power 92′s DJ Kid Scratch, who is currently spinning Soope hits like “Personal Trainer.” He has been performing at some of the hottest spots nationwide, recently making appearances in Chicago, L.A., and Indianapolis, NYC. Soope has even made the leap across the globe, working with artist and producers from UK, Netherlands & Germany. Recording with UK pop sensation Natalie Rodgers, Soope has a song that Top 20 on B-port Men On Mars “F**K That Sh**. Soope has clocked over 2 million legitimate views on MySpace, and over 210,000 combined views on YouTube.
Soope videos are the best seen and delightfully creative from any independent artist I have ran across- Soope has worked with well known Video Directors from Christopher Adams- Chicago, Kraze King of Content- NYC, & Nick Brazinsky -Chicago, who recently release Soope lastest powerful video “King”, MLK & “When You Come Home” for all the soldiers around the world.The streets are definitely buzzing about Soope Da Roadrunner.

Many of today’s top artist have blessed Soope with contributions to this mixtape release.
