Ronald Jenkees murders YouTube

Photo by ceethreedom

I am an enormous fan of a little application on Firefox called StumbleUpon, and the following is just one example of why…

 Yesterday I was stumbling and came across the video below called Disorganized Fun by this kid named Ronald Jenkees and it kind of blew my mind.  Something in the comments made me think Ronald was from Kentucky and so I got in touch.  Come to find out, the kid is living in Louisville right now & is simply murdering YouTube with some of the sickest beats I’ve heard.  The video above has more than 2.5M views already, with a 5 star rating after 14,000+ votes.  If I could see this kid perform with Dan Deacon, I would probably implode.  Unfortunately, it seems Ronald is more key on production than performance at the moment, but perhaps if enough of you start sending the requests, perhaps we can change his mind…

I’ve included a second video, which is probably even a little better musically, but it is collaborative with some preset drums, which shouldn’t take away from it, but it’s important you don’t think he’s playing it all from the computer.  Regardless, I seriously cannot encourage you highly enough to turn your speakers way up and check out Ronald’s YouTube channel to hear beats that will send you straight into a epileptic fit.  Also, be sure to check out Ronald’s first album, which you can buy HERE as a physical copy or digital download

It’s like Louisville’s very own Dan Deacon, and it’s amazing…




  2. ha!
    thanks for giving the credit on my jenkees photo!


  3. It seems very probable that Jenkees is afflicted with a genetic disorder called William’s Syndrome. This disorder explains his odd demeanor and appearance, his love for music, as well as his extraordinary musical talent (97% of people diagnosed with William’s Syndrome possess “absolute pitch”; a rare ability to accurately name and produce the pitch of musical notes without an outside reference)

  4. Finally a youtube video that shows how Ronald Jenkees is a fake.

    Spread this vid.

  5. What a terrible argument. Nothing in the video has any bearing on his talent. It’d be like saying Bob Dylan is a fake because he calls himself Bob Dylan rather than Robert Zimmerman.

  6. i got turned onto ronald about a week ago and the shits been bangin in my house, via youtube, non stop. theres this shit about he’s fake, but sorry fools, watch him play the keys… that shit aint fake

  7. To Jenkeesisfake,

    Sooner or later you’re going to have to come to terms with the fact that there are people in this world who have prodigious talent.

    I feel sorry for you that you can’t cope with the fact that you aren’t one of them, so I think it would be a good idea if you just kept quiet, you twisted little parasite.

  8. Robert,

    It seems very probable that you are one of the myriad of internet ‘experts’ who have an inflated opinion of their own intelligence.

    It would be a good idea to remember that the ability to copy information from Wikipedia, having been prompted by the ramblings of other half-wits, is not a credible substitute for intellect.

  9. People who scream “fake” lack the talent and commitment to create anything beautiful in this world and would rather take a dump on those that can inspire and entertain. They along with the 9/11 conspiracy theorists can all go to hell. Seriously.

  10. These is a response to Robert
    He does not have the Williams sydrome.Patients tend to have widely spaced teeth, a long philtrum, and flattened nasal bridge. Individuals with Williams syndrome also experience many cardiac problems, commonly heart murmurs and the narrowing of major blood vessels as well as supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS)
    He has not all these..
    You can see at his youtube channel he says that he is fully healthy and he is..
    Just a little strange.

  11. “…i came across this kid…”
    He’s not exactly a kid is he?

  12. “…maybe we can split hairs some more…”
    Fucking douche-bag.

    “You’re not exactly Will are you?” Probably William. anyways, take care Bill

  13. @Robert:
    People with Williams syndrome almost always have issues with their motor skills (especially their fine motor skills), which pretty conclusively rules that out as something RJ could have. There’s no way he could play the piano that well with Williams syndrome.

  14. Those who cannot see that there are those with talent greater than the norm, and must try to falsely name them as fakes due to an inability to recognize there are those that are BETTER than they are, are sadly confused. I truly feel sorry for the one who posted that video, as they are one of those people. Someone blind to the progression of those around them and their abilities. And what skills that practice can offer.

  15. uhhhh……definitely not fake. He makes slight mistakes in his bends, VERY hard to hear but they’re there. And they are part of what makes his music sound REAL and authentic. They add style and I wouldn’t have it any other way
