Few Things You Need To Know About Roy C (Biography)
Born in Newington, Georgia, Roy Hammond began his music career with The Genies, a vocal group in Long Beach, Long Island, who were later offered a recording contract by record producer Bob Shad.
Hammond has occasionally been credited as a co-writer due to the sample, including on the hit Mary J. Blige song “Real Love”, which samples the drum track from “Top Billin'” by Audio Two, which in turn uses a modified form of the drum intro from “Impeach the President”.
He is also credited for the 2011 Kanye West and Jay-Z song “Otis”, which uses a line from “Top Billin'”, and for the 2013 Frank Ocean song “Super Rich Kids”, which interpolates the chorus of “Real Love”. Neither “Otis” nor “Super Rich Kids” contain a sample from “Impeach the President”.
From 1979 he continued to release a string of soul singles and albums, on his own Three Gems record label, initially based in New York and later in Allendale, South Carolina. Hammond wrote most of the songs that appear on his over 125 records.
He recorded an album by ex-Temptation Dennis Edwards entitled Talk to Me, and also worked on a CD by Bobby Stringer. Hammond also ran his own record shop in Allendale, called Carolina Record Distributors.
