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. 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 know 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.

Dear Leader,

Sometimes it takes years to be compensated for all the work you put in. In today’s world where everything is about instant gratification you gotta trust your process. Stay focused (keeping your vision in sight). Shoutout to the Leaders that have been working on their dreams and still building. Congratulate yourself today for making it this far!! Now let’s keep going!! #DreamBigLifestyle 💪🚀

The Marathon Continues…

The fact that I’ve recorded so much music and haven’t released as much maybe it’s been more therapeutic than anything… at this point I know I’m somewhere close to if not past that 10,000 hour mark, I can see it in how I create, the way that I study other artists, pick up on certain things so quick, and just gaining a whole new passion for the creative process. I can honestly say after I found out about @nipseyhussle a few months ago I didn’t even wanna listen to music for awhile, not his, not even my own. I was hurt and lost…. I might still be idk… but I had to continue on my marathon. I feel like I’ve dedicated so much of my life to this journey, sacrificed, missed out on a lot, disconnected from the world pretty much. It’s bigger than music for me, but this has definitely been a driving force. Idk where or how I would be without it.

Gifts With Purpose

Dear Leader,

We have all been chosen for a definite purpose by God. This purpose consists of the things we are good at through creation and skill to make someone else’s life better.

No True Limitations

Dear Leader,

You have no true limitations. Our physical body’s capabilities are not our full potential. Our environment is not our full potential. And neither one of these variables can determine what our potential is. All of us aren’t able to slam dunk a basketball in a 10 foot goal or run faster than a cheetah, but these limitations on our physical bodies DO NOT limit our potential.

We are capable of great things. Challenge your mind to see past your perceived handicaps and continue striving towards reaching your full potential. Dream big and believe!!

Your Fellow Lifestyle Leader,

Ruff
