At LifeLongs video release party

Man there are some artist you see perform or hear there music and there music creates feeling or the hungry in there voice or beats draw you to want to hear more. I remember seeing RNR in a beat battle a few years back and I was blown, because of the energy and originality his beats had and to see him rip to mic. I was very impressed. The thing about this dude, he is mad humble and I have a lot of respect for RNR.

Check him out, support real hip hop and if you dont purchase a album from him go to his myspace page and leave some comments, check out his music. I could ask for anymore. The Truth Serum album is available now on his myspace page for a physical copy along with other merchandise and digital copies are available at cd baby and itunes of both Truth Serum and Another Level. Below is the I'M BROKE & PROUD VIDEO FEAT. HASAN SALAAM and address for the RNR and his music. Peep the freestyle video.


I be poppin my suspenders, son!!!

Over the years, Rugged N Raw has developed his raw, uncut style on the microphone, making his one of the best up and coming artists around. In addition to his talents as an emcee, he is also one of the best producers you'll ever hear; with beats ranging from slow and melodic to fast-paced. He is an all-around talent that is a rarity in a business where most only succeed in one area or the other. RNR has performed at quite a few spots and won some competitions along the way. In addition to winning song competitions and emcee battles, he is also a 7-Time Beat Battle Champion and the current IPA Beat Battle Grand Champion and Newark's MTP Grand Champion, proving he is the most versatile unsigned phenomenon out there. He was a finalist at the 2008 Discmakers Independent Music World Series & selected to be a performer at the 2008 Baltimore Music Conference. Rugged N Raw has shared the stage with the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Serius Jones, Immortal Technique, Grandmaster Caz, DMC, Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian, C Rayz Walz, Eyedea & Abilities, Akir, 5 Ft. of Black Moon, Amanda Diva from MTV2, Poison Pen, Kevin Michael, Eternia, Mr. Lif, Polyrhythm Addicts, Dame Grease, RAMP and Rob Sonic.
