Roy Woods

Better known by his stage name Roy Woods (stylized as Roy Wood$), is a Canadian rapper, singer and songwriter from Brampton, Ontario. He attended Turner Fenton Secondary School for three years before switching to St. Augustine Secondary School for his final year of high school. Before his music career took off, he was often recognized for his commitment and talent in football. The origin of his name comes from a youth that lived in the same building as him from Brampton giving "Roy" his name after his previous one, Wood$ took a survey throughout his high school and Roy Wood$ seemed to be the winning ticket when he asked his peers. In an October 2014 interview with HotNewHipHop, he said some of his biggest influences are Michael Jackson, Drake, Nelly, The Weeknd and PartyNextDoor. He is signed to OVO Sound, the record label co-founded by rapper Drake, producer Noah "40" Shebib and Oliver El-Khatib.
