In an era when critics and rappers themselves jump to declare the death of hip hop, 28 year old Ruff has been breathing new life into the genre through his storytelling, will to connect with the people, and boundless on-stage energy. Listening to artists such as J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco, wale, and following the career of Jay-Z, you can hear the impact they have on his music, but they don’t define who he is as an artist.
Born and raised in Rock Hill, S.C., Ruff has dreams bigger than the confines of his small hometown, literally. His Dream Big imprint has spread, in what seems like just a few short months, quickly across the country to states including but not limited to California, Texas, Minnesota, Chicago, New York, Florida, and Ohio. Dreaming even bigger the brand, also known as “The Lifestyle”, has become internationally known widening its horizons to as far as the UK.
With that being said, the sky is not the limit for the Carolina native simply because there are no limits. Dream Big, No Limitations. For more news, music, updates, etc. on Ruff, follow him on twitter @RuffGotRhymes .
