About R. The Rim-Man

springfield, OH

HOLLA AT THE RIM-MAN- IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED.
MAKING BEATS, PRODUCING SONGS AND SELLING RIMS AND TIRES WITH CUSTOM CAR ACCESSORIES.
COMING FROM SEVERAL GENERATIONS OF MUSICIANS AND ARTISTS WAS A YOUNG BOY GROWING UP IN ROCK ISLAND,ILL..
"THE QUAD CITIES" A SLIGHTLY ROUGH AREA ARDELL J.R.WILLIAMS(BORN IN 1977) LEARNED TO HOLD HIS OWN. THIS IS WHERE HE LEARNED HOW TO PLAY THE DRUMS AND DEVELOPED A GREAT FEEL FOR HIP HOP. HIS OLDER BROTHER (GEORGE) AKA (JAZZY)WAS WELL KNOWN AROUND THE "QUAD CITY" AREA FOR BEING A HARD HITTING DJ. HE WAS THE MAIN DJ FOR SEVERAL YEARS AT A PLACED CALLED HICKMANS.

ARDELL'S FATHER WAS A DRUMMER. HE TAUGHT BOTH GEORGE AND ARDELL HOW TO PLAY AS WELL. JAZZ IS HIS THING. HE HAD BEEN EMPLOYED BY I.H.(INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER) UNTIL THEY CLOSED DOWN THE PLANT. THAT REALLY HURT THE AREA- CRIME RATE WENT SKY HIGH-
ARDELLS FATHER WHO WAS WORKING FOR THE CITY JAIL SYSTEM AS A GUARD, DECIDED TO TAKE A RELOCATION JOB FOR A DIFFERENT BRANCH OF I.H..
AFTER A YEAR OF ARDELL'S FATHER TRAVELING BACK AND FORTH, HE MOVED HIS FAMILY TO SPRINGFIELD,OHIO WHERE THE JOB RESIDED.
IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AREA ARDELL'S LOVE FOR MUSIC BECAME STRONGER. HIS FATHER HAD PURCHASED PIANOS AND BEAT MACHINES AND GUITARS. ARDELL USED THEM TO GET FAMILIAR WITH CHORDS AND TUNES.
AS ARDELL GREW UP HE WAS KNOWN FOR BEING MUSICALLY INCLINED AS HE DID TALENT SHOWS AND PLAYED WEEKLY FOR
TRYDESTONE MISSIONARY BAPTIST, AND PLAYED FOR MANY,MANY CHURCHES SPECIAL OCCASIONS IN AND OUT OF TOWN. HE'S EVEN PLAYED WITH PAR TOLLIVER (WHO IS THE MAN THAT TAUGHT THE LEGENDARY NEW ARTIST "JOHN LEGEND"
HOW TO PLAY THE PIANO. AS YOU MAY KNOW THATS WHERE JOHN(STEVENS)LEGEND IS FROM.
ARDELL HAS HOSTED AND SUPPLIED THE BUILDING FOR THE RETURN HOME PARTIES. ARDELL HAS ALSO WORKED WITH THE BROTHER OF "JOHN LEGEND" AND UP AND COMING ARTIST "VAUGHN ANTHONY" WHO IS NOW IN THE WORKS WITH ANOTHER UP AND COMING ARTIST "BIG SHAWN DON" IN WHICH ARDELL HAS CALABODE WITH AS WELL ON SOME UNDERGROUND. HOPEFULLY IT WILL START SOME KIND OF DOMINO EFFECT THROUGH THE AREA WITH ALL OF THE RAW TALENT HERE IN SPRINGFIELD.

AT 17 ARDELL LOST HIS OLDER BROTHER GEORGE IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT. DURING THESE NEXT 2-3 YEARS ARDELL WAS HAVING TROUBLE DEALING WITH HIS OLDER BROTHERS DEATH. IN THIS TIME PERIOD HE MET HIS FUTURE WIFE WHO DEFINITELY BROUGHT ARDELL BACK TO REALITY AFTER A COUPLE OF FELONY GUN AND TRAFFICKING CHARGES BACK TO BACK.
(3 STRIKES-YOUR OUT)
AFTER SETTLING DOWN AS A 20 YEAR OLD MAN, ARDELL MARRIED HIS WIFE AISHA.AND DECIDED TO START A FAMILY.
IN 1998 THEY HAD A SON(ARDELL J.R. WILLIAMS J.R.)
THEY CALL HIM "BUDDY" FOR SHORT.
ARDELL DECIDED HE WANTED TO DO MORE WITH HIS LIFE, "BESIDES" HE SAID " I HAVE TO SELL SOMETHING - I WAS BORN TO BE A BUSINESS-MAN ", SO HE STARTED SELLING RIMS OUT OF HIS GARAGE, BOOKS, AND COMPUTER. BY WORD OF MOUTH, WITH IN 5 YEARS, HE PUMPED UP AND OPENED UP THE FIRST RIM AND TIRE SHOP THAT OFFERED STEREO EQUIPMENT AND CAR ACCESSORIES IN SPRINGFIELD,OH IN THE YEAR 2002.
THERE HE CARRIES A HUGE LINE OF WHEELS AND STEREO COMPANIES LIKE (J.L.AUDIO AND KICKER)
DURING ALL OF THIS , HE WAS STILL DOING MUSIC..ARDELL GOT TIRED OF OTHER SO CALLED PRODUCERS TAKING HIS MONEY ACTING LIKE THERE WAS GLITCHES AND TAKING THEY'RE TIME. AND STILL TRYING TO CHARGE FULL PRICE.
THATS WHEN HE STARTED TAKING HIS OWN MONEY AND PURCHASING ANY AND WHAT HE NEEDED TO PRODUCE, WRITE, AND COMPOSE HIS OWN MUSIC. HE HAS WORKED WITH MANY AND THE BEST IN THE SPRINGFIELD AREA WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC(HIP-HOP TO HEAVY METAL).
RIGHT NOW AND LIKE IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN IT IS STILL A PAST TIME THAT HE ENJOYS,WORKS HARD AT , AND LOVES....HE WILL ALWAYS BE A MUSICIAN "HOPEFULLY" HE SAYS HE CAN ADD ANOTHER SUCCESS TO HIS WORLD USING HIS PERSONAL GOD GIVEN TALENTS - IF NOT HE'S JUST GLAD GOD GAVE HIM A TALENT PERIOD.
