Rondell Turner,[2] better known by his stage name Ron Browz, is an American record producer and rapper. He has his own record label called Ether Boy Records. He is best known for producing the prolific Jay-Z diss song "Ether" by Nas. After the popularity of the song, he adapted the nickname "Ether Boy".

Music career[edit]

Turner first worked in the studio with rapper Big L and later produced Nas's song "Ether," which dissed rapper Jay-Z.[3] In late 2008 Ron Browz started working on a solo album, Etherboy. The first single was "Pop Champagne" a collaboration with fellow Harlem rapper Jim Jones featuring Juelz Santana.[4] "Pop Champagne" was included in Jones's 2009 album Pray IV Reign. The second single was "Jumping (Out the Window)" the music video was released on January 27, 2009[citation needed]. He was also featured on Busta Rhymes' first single "Arab Money" off his album Back on My B.S. and Capone-N-Noreaga's comeback single "Rotate" off their album Channel 10 . Browz has also been thrust into popculture thanks to the use of his song "20 Dollars". His Etherboy album was never released and Browz parted ways with Universal in 2009. On July 20, 2010 Ron Browz released his debut album, Etherlibrium on his newly founded record label Ether Boy Records.[5]

Recently, Browz has been giving fans free downloads of songs from his upcoming double album Random/Awkward. It has been announced that Browz' next album will not be the double disc set Random/Awkward Browz had been talking about on Twitter and will instead be a brand new mixtape entitled The Christening.
