Growing up to the sounds of motown, hip hop, jazz & blues, r&b, reggae, and even rock & roll.... He's been in love with music ever since he can remember first hearing it. Seeing some of now hip hop's pioneers & watching how people enjoyed to lose their selves to the sound of the drum & being a part of that crowd that was vibing to that same sound. He started writing in his early teens, doing talent shows at 13,open mics, clubs, battle's any where he could find one. 'We've been going hard, been doing songs, albums and what ever we needed to do to get heard,even then real wasn't recognizing real'(rugg mc) His name 'RUGG MC' comes from his first alias 'smugget' the rugged one.The mc comes from the do's & don't he learned in being on the scene, back stage, in the crowd or where ever he could get a good spot at a show. His style of music is exactly what 'ALL ANGLE MASS' stands for. It's hip hop, it's pop, it's grunge, it's relaxed & hype, it's hood, it's rock, but most of all it's focused & real good music.(r.g.m.) 'When it comes to Angle Mass music it's all about the vibe, the painted picture as well as the overall sound. From a fan's point of view the artist has to give me what I like to hear as a consumer if he or she wants to sell records, and at the same time as an artist it's all about where the music takes him or her,where the song ends up at the end of the track. The fan has to give the artist lead way & at the same time the artist has to listen to the fan/consumer. When it's said & done the music has to have an effect at the end of the playback. I'm a fan first, consumer second & a mc third.' 'It's the adversity in song writing as well as the adrenalin rush of the mc & the crowd rocking out that drives me'...(rugg mc) Born & raised in new roc, NY. 4 brothers, 2 sisters, & a super huge list of relatives. He's knocking on doors and soon he's gonna be bringing the house down. He's 'RUGG MC' the rest is to be heard........
