Interview By: Kim Coco
Introduce yourself to our readers! Let them know your name, where you’re from & the name of the project you dropped!
What’s up! My name is Splash Rob, aka “Party wit Splash” out of Cleveland, Ohio. I just dropped my latest single Right Now out on all platforms so make sure you check that out!
Splash Rob, you have debuted your HIGHLY ANTICIPATED single “Right Now” which is #25 on rap Mix Show radio charts. It’s one of the most requested songs on radio, and all the (strip) clubs. It’s already hit almost 50k streams independently and has even been featured in an independent film based out of Cleveland Ohio entitled “Heights Girl 2”. It’s gone VIRAL! Why do you think that is?
Hell yeah- the people seem to love that track since its debut. It’s been trending since its release and the most requested song in all the nightclubs, all the strip clubs, the mix shows and the radio airwaves. It’s been named the Strip Club Anthem of 2020 according to the people and the freaks fuck with it (laughs!). It’s currently #25 on the Rap Mix Show radio charts. It’s that type of song that sets the tone for the night, which you can most definitely expect will be a party which is what I’m known for. Right Now is featured in the film “Heights Girl 2” which is #1 in independent Black Cinema

A big part of your music career has been spent in the Nightclub scene throwing some of the BIGGEST and WILDEST parties, concerts and events Cleveland Ohio has ever seen. You have also DJ’d events for some major celebs. Tell the readers who you have worked with and what parties you’ve done!
Yeah in 2012 I organized and brought Future out to Cleveland for first time here. I actually promoted that concert and organized the whole thing down to the ticket sales. I brought the Twerk Team here in Cleveland as well the same year. I worked with DollaBoy of playaz circle, Kat Washington from Bad Girls Club Jocelyn Hernadez from Love & hip hop & Ty Dolla $ign & we took shots of bacardi 151 when everybody in Taylor Gang drinks bombay. I helped organize and promote for Ray Jr. at Tops N Bottoms when he had special events. Most recently I Dj’d when Da Baby came to Cleveland at his first concert here for Will The Genaral’s Set @ Odeon fka Club Earth. Headlined the Ohio Hip Hop Awards, I even hosted a Reggae Event W/ Jamaican Megastar “Masicka” and I was even reposted by the infamous Akademiks. I designed a Free Doeboy shirt that even Future wore himself. I brought Eastside Ivo to Cleveland his 1st time. Right before the pandemic started I promoted our last big concert here which featured Lil Baby & Gunna. I threw a Epic basketball tournament w/Sharky of RBMG Had the whole park SMACKING!!! Promoted my favorite artist Gucci Mane concert at Agora. I’ve had several notable weekly nights in the city every week like XL Thursday’s, Premier Fridays Anatomy Saturdays & Anatomy Sundays Legacy Dollar night all of 2019 & started the year off with one of the best showcases called “Holladay Season” in December. I also threw the BIGGEST STRIPPER PARTY EVER IN Cleveland last year called “Stripper Bowl” at Legacy as well.

How can the readers interested in throwing an event or show In Cleveland get in contact with you?
Anyone that is interested can contact me directly and send an inquiry to my email.
How did you get the name Party Wit Splash anyway?
The people gave me that name because I am the party. When something BIG is going on I’m who they come to with questions or use to having parts on the function here in Cleveland Ohio. They named me that years ago because they say “Ain’t a Party Without Splash”
