Ruggid Real, born James Long, is from McKeesport, PA. Growing up in a poverty stricken urban environment, Ruggid saw his fair share of drugs and violence but even at a young age music became a bright light at the end of a dark tunnel. Though he did not get serious until he was 16 years old, Ruggid's music is a reflection of the hard times and tribulations he faced growing up, always accented by a feel good story making the point that no matter how bad things seem you can always find something positive to take from the situation. Currently representing Fredericksburg, VA, Ruggid is pleasing audiences aspiring to create at the level of his top influences: DMX, KRS ONE, REDMAN, EPMD, and LL COOL J.
Ruggid has been rocking shows, releasing records, and fine tuning his craft. His experience is evident in his most recent release, “Live Loud or Die Silent”, whose title says it all. This mixtape features a variety of production from industry beats to original compositions. Ruggid’s southern flow keeps a consistent cadence and clear message across a diverse selection of instrumentals. If you are looking for a mixtape that features real life themes presented with a southern style delivery this is the mixtape for you. Check out Ruggid Real on ReverbNation.
