Rise and Shine!!!

Rise and Rhyme to the Leaders!!! Be more motivated than ever today. When you focus on your goals and dreams, it’s like you become a magnet to attracting them. I’ll be the first to say I’ve had my fair share of adversity these past 2 years, but I’ve been dedicated to reaching my dreams so I never stopped grinding. I’m a witness to how your life can turn around when you believe in yourself and work hard. Despite the obstacles in life, remain positive and focus on your dreams. Dream Big!!!

Weekend Recap – Virginia Beach, VA

Over the weekend I took a major step forward in my career. Being back in the studio in Virginia Beach was an amazing feeling and I enjoyed every single moment. It’s an honor to work with super talented people that are willing to share their knowledge with me and assist on developing my skills. As soon as I was informed that would be traveling back to VA, I thought about it every day until I was on my way.

We had a “hiccup” aka flat tire as soon as we got on the road, but after an hour wait on the side of the road we were brought a new rental car which was a major upgrade in the 2015 Lincoln MKZ. Since we made it in town late Friday night, I went straight to my room to check in and prepare myself for an exciting Saturday. When we made it to the studio the next day I was overly impressed with the facility. There were several rooms with studios and top notch equipment as well as a green room for video production. As we were getting a tour of the place I felt like a kid in a toy store. Honestly, words don’t do justice of the experience I had. It was in my opinion a perfect day. I didn’t leave the studio until around 5:30am just in time for the continental breakfast back at my hotel at 6am. What’s crazy is I would’ve stayed there awake and working on music as long as humanly possible.

I’ve waited on this moment for a very long time and I am excited and committed to taking advantage of the opportunity to work with some greats. This is truly a blessing and I appreciate everyone’s support in my journey to reaching my dreams. I am anxious to let the world here the music I’ve been creating. Soon!!

Click here to view some photos from the weekend, more will be added shortly. Stay connected with me through my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, and Tumblr for more. Until next time Leaders, Dream Big!!

Potential is Powerful

Ruff on Track Hello to the leaders. Lately I’ve been focusing on enhancing the gifts God has blessed me with. I’ve become aware of the potential I have in pursuing my dreams and I couldn’t help but to share this new journey with my fellow leaders.

First let’s understand what potential really is… Potential is dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talents, or capped capability. Potential is everything you can be but have not yet become. Potential is unlimited power. Yes, unlimited. It is our purpose to reach our potential or at least give 100% effort towards reaching it. If we want to maximize the power of our abilities and gifts, we have to focus on reaching our potential. We have to learn to live for the moment giving every second of our life 100% effort.

Once you become aware that you are capable of doing anything you set your mind to, you will hold the key to unlock the true value of what’s inside of you. You can be as great as you allow yourself to be. You set the limit. As for me, I have no limitations. Dream Big, leaders!!!

100 Miles and Rhyming Playlist

Here’s a playlist of all the songs I’ve posted to Soundcloud so far for the Summer. I’ll be adding more to it every Friday until the end of the Summer. At the end of the Summer I’ll put all of the songs on a cd. I may do this for every season since I record so much. Hopefully something in my music inspires you to chase your dreams. No limitations.

100 Miles and Rhyming

First off I’d like to apologize for not keeping RUFFGOTRHYMES.COM as current as I’d like it to be. I’ve been working hard and focused on some great things and I can’t wait to share them with the world. Along with new t-shirts and more surprises, I’ve decided to release new music every Friday for the rest of the Summer. Most of these songs will be covers and verses I’ve written to some of my current favorite songs that I hear on the radio or artists that I like. I’ll also be taking requests to rap over songs that you all would like to hear me on. You can submit requests in the comments or by connecting with me via social networks @RuffGotRhymes. The first track released started with a song called “You and I” by Joe Budden from his album No Love Lost. To hear my version, visit my soundcloud here. I hope you all enjoy it and stay posted as I release new songs every Friday for the rest of the Summer. This is the beginning of my 100 Miles and Rhyming campaign, keep up!!!

No limitations.

Overcome Adversity

Ruff - Overcome AdversityWhen you’re in pursuit of your dreams and it seems that you are at the top of your game, life always throws that curveball. Be in the mindset of whatever can go wrong will go wrong, but the key is to be ready and brace yourself for it.

When I put on my Dream Big t-shirt this morning, I looked in the mirror and felt unstoppable. Although things haven’t gone exactly how I’ve planned or imagined them to go, I still walk in confidence and I still have faith. Sometimes you just have to take a timeout, take another look at the bigger picture, realize how far you’ve come, and why there is no turning back even though the journey is tough. Prepare yourself to fight through it.

In the midst of adversity you will find yourself. You will figure out who you are and what you’re really made of. No matter how high the odds are stacked against you, you have to keep moving forward. When you keep believing in your dreams and work hard to achieve them, you will realize that those mountains that used to be in your way look more like speed bumps now. Understand there will be unexpected circumstances and things will go wrong, but overcoming adversity is a key to living the Dream Big Lifestyle. Don’t give up and don’t limit yourself.

Happy Dream Big Friday,

– Ruff
