The Raskal, Rufflife Recordz


Hip hop is life, power, and expression that transcends race, class, and cultures. Hip hop renegade, Jacob Ryan, The Raskal, is a breath of fresh air in an era where copycat rappers rule. He delivers vivid rhymes and smooth flows. His skillful wordplay and witty metaphors paint precise pictures. And his cadence and penmanship are top-notch. The Tucson, Arizona native began rapping at the age of 16 becoming the freestyle champion on 93.7 KRQQ’s Rap~Attack Battle Competition where he remained undefeated for 30 straight weeks.

The Raskal’s stage presence is filled with tremendous energy, excitement, and stamina. He is a true master of ceremony. His music incorporates an element of realism and rawness that is authentic and seldom seen on today’s independent musical landscape. The Raskal sits at the helm of Rufflife Recordz whereby he has 11 artists signed to the imprint. There’s a lot of vision and passion behind the label. Rufflife Recordz speaks truth to power without fear of consequences.

Equally important, The Raskal is currently riding high off of the momentum of his recent award for West Coast Artist of the Year in December 2015 and has also been featured in The Source and World Star Hip Hop. He’s also performed huge shows with rap superstars such as Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, and Nelly to name a few. With all the independent success as a solo artist, The Raskal has now turned his full focus on the master piece project, Lethal Injektion, where he is the front man along with fellow vocalist Jonathan Russell.
