About the Author

Ron "B-Stinger" Savage was born in 1965 and raised in The Bronx section of Castle Hill. As a teen, he attended Allied E. Stevenson High School and finished with his GED at the age of 18. Intrigued with music at a very young age, Ron and his sister would attend functions in their local park-as their parents would not allow them to go outside of their neighborhood. As the two matured more, they were then able to accompany music notables DJ Jazzy J and Bam, and from there, they fell in love with Hip-Hop. So in awe of this new developing culture called Hip-Hop, Ron and his sister hung out with members of the Zulu Nation. The Zulu Nation is an organization that stands for peace, love, and having fun. It is all about music and break dancing. It is about the culture of Hip-Hop. After seeing DJ's spinning at his local park, Ron wanted to be down. "I became a member of the Zulu Nation in 1979 (Age 14) and went by the name B-Stinger. Originally, I was called Ronald B, but other members saw B-Stinger as the more fitting nickname. I was truly a bee because I always tried to sting the ladies (get their attention) back in the day like a bee, so that's how I got the name", recalls Savage. Ronald was among the main chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation Council from The Bronx River Houses in New York City. Later in the 1990's, B-Stinger -aka- Ronald Savage worked for DJ Jazzy Jay and Rocky Bucano at Strong City Records/MCA where he became known as a "go-getter" in the music industry. After three years, BStinger left Strong City Records to work for Dick Scott Entertainment where he handled the careers as an Artist Liaison for Snap ( I Got The Power), Show Biz & A.G. (Soul Clap), and Doug E. Fresh (Busting Out) just to name a few. When Scott went on to manage Boyz II Men and New Kids On The Block, he focused only on those acts and Savage's services were no longer needed. This was also due to a decline in sales. Progressing, he then managed a 3-guy R&B Group called Motif (London/PayDay/Polygram Records). In 1993, he helped them market and promote their debut album, "More Than Magic". The group's single featuring Positive K called "You Told Me", did extremely well on the charts. They opened frequently for several established acts of this era like acts such as H-Town. For two years, Ronald would grind it out and endure the highs and lows of the industry. Between the music industry's constant changes and the juggle of emotional issues stemming from his teen years, he became discouraged and left entertainment all together.
