Over the years, Rugged N Raw has developed his raw, uncut style on the microphone, making his one of the best up and coming artists around. In addition to his talents as an emcee, he is also one of the best producers you'll ever hear; with beats ranging from slow and melodic to fast-paced. He is an all-around talent that is a rarity in a business where most only succeed in one area or the other. RNR has performed at quite a few spots and won some competitions along the way.
In addition to winning song competitions and emcee battles, he is also a 7-Time Beat Battle Champion and the current IPA Beat Battle Grand Champion and Newark's MTP Grand Champion, proving he is the most versatile unsigned phenomenon out there.
Rugged N Raw has shared the stage with the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Serius Jones, Immortal Technique, Grandmaster Caz, C Rayz Walz, Eyedea & Abilities, Akir, 5 Ft. of Black Moon, Amanda Diva from MTV2, Poison Pen, Kevin Michael, Eternia, Mr. Lif, Polyrhythm Addicts, Dame Grease, RAMP and Rob Sonic.
