Kent Ruga, Return Of That Raw


Kent Ruga is a 25 year old unsigned lyricist born in raised in Kenner, Louisiana located in the greater New Orleans area. Ruga made a firm decision to follow his dreams and passion following the death of his grandmother at age 12. Much of his late teenage and early adult life was plagued by violence and the struggle of street life. He decided it was about time he got serious about his career. He left his hometown for Houston, TX in early 2011 and linked up with the likes of CominUpProductionz and Legalize Everything movement, and performed at shows with local Houston promotional companies.

After passing on what could have been possibly a very profitable venture with Atlantic Records, Ruga eventually garnered enough attention from his raw, yet high quality, visuals to his freestyles over instrumentals and an independent mixtape digitally distributed by Island Def Jam. In Early 2012 Ruga traveled to New York as part of Armed Men Entertainment. Still rough around the edges as far as understanding how the music business works, he managed to make songs with New York artists such as Cortez and D Chamberz from URLTV/SmackDVD as well as Craven Page, Iam Livin Proof, and Jux Money. Once again Ruga fell back into the streets distributing molly in the tri state area, things went south and relocated to Mississippi.

After performing at shows and videos, and being featured on underground Canadian website and radio show MusicMoneyMixtapes hosted by DJ Bankrupt, Ruga relocated to Minnesota where he thought he would retire from rap forever. After attempting to change his life by joining the United States Army and being declined after completing his training he made his final decision: Hip-Hop was his only option. After a year and a half hiatus, Ruga relocated back to Houston, TX and has winning on his mind. Achieving a decent following on Twitter and a successful promo team, #FxckEmUpGxng, he seems to have only two things on his mind: winning and being self-made. Ruga plans to drop a mixtape and his debut EP later this year, “Return Of That Raw.”
