R.A. The Rugged Man
R.A. The Rugged Man
R.A. the Rugged Man, is an emcee from Suffolk County, New York on Long Island. At 18, R.A. signed with Jive Records and then in the mid 90's signed with Priority Records/EMI, his contract was later absorbed by Capitol records before going independent in the early 2000s. Throughout his career he's worked with various artists including the Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, Sadat X, Akinyele, Chuck D of Public Enemy, Jedi Mind Tricks, Kool G Rap, Wu-Tang Clan, Masta Killa, Killah Priest, and producers Trackmasters, Erick Sermon, DJ Quik, Buckwild, Alchemist, and Ayatollah. He was featured on all three of Rawkus's Soundbombing albums, as well as the platinum-selling WWF Aggression album, performing the theme song for Chris Jericho. In Ego Trip (magazine) Vol. 1, Issue 3, the Notorious B.I.G. was quoted as saying, "I thought I was the illest," when referring to R.A. In 2004 he released the album "Die, Rugged Man, Die" on Brooklyn based label Nature Sounds. R.A. has cameos in several music videos including Havoc from Mobb Deep's "I'm the boss," and Sadat X's "Throw the Ball" and "Old Man" featuring Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, Masta Killa and Ol' Dirty Bastard in one of ODB's final video appearances.
L3fty, raised a street smart adolescent with roots in the midwest & pacific northwest. Is putting in work & quickly becoming known in Washington for his raw, extremly well rounded sound. Diverse style, high energy performance and "larger than life" stage presence. Versatile, fun to listen to & real. "Painting pictures with words" is an understatement as he takes you on vivid journeys through his painfully surreal life & mind with his unique storytelling abilities and catchy flow fueled by real life experiences. Also known locally, for being one half of the independent duo "L3fty & S.T.K." he has recently put focus on his solo career and it shows with his recent video for the single "3 A.M." off of L3fty's upcoming debut release for "Pain Motivates Change EP" (Watch the video ). Full project set to be released on February 24th 2017 on www.l3ftyhiphop.com
