RA The Rugged Man
One of underground hip-hop’s hardest is back!
East Coast legend RA The Rugged Man heads to our shores for a run of very rare UK performances. Don’t sleep, these will lock out.
R.A. The Rugged Man: Respected globally for his deft lyrical skills R.A. was courted by just about every major Hip Hop label from his early teens. His untouchable rep sparked a now infamous nine label bidding war which would see him sign to Jive Records. Industry politics saw his debut album shelved but in spite of this he would go on to work with Notorious B.I.G. Mobb Deep, Wu Tang Clan, Kool G Rap and Eric Sermon amongst many others. One of the first artists to sign to Rawkus then later signing to the Independent Nature Sounds Label. R.A. continues to sell out shows worldwide, one of the few, true rap legends kicking it today.
