Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announce the release of the new video “Hold Me Down” by Ricky Rude and AR-AB. The video, now available for view on YouTube, is directed, shot, and edited by Joe Green Productions.

Ricky Rude grew up listening to Scarface and battle rapping in the school cafeteria. His musical style took an eclectic turn when he was introduced to guitar-heavy punk bands like Nirvana. Since then, he has been making headway as the troubadour of South Jersey with a new genre of hip-hop he calls punk rap. The innovative genre embraces modernist tropes of making it new, while at the same time paying tribute to hip-hop greats that paved the way for new artists today.

When listening to Rude’s music, audiences can expect to hear passion, truth, and topics that speak to people in the hood and the suburbs. He is known for his unparalleled ambition, fearlessness, and perseverance that have come to define his signature style.

To date, Rude has released a series of underground releases. He is set to drop his album “NO GUTS, NO GLORY” soon. According to Rude the project is his best work to date, featuring clever wordplay, and catchy one liners.

“Hold Me Down” is now available for view. The song is produced by White Mike of Genius Republic.
