R.A. The Rugged Man is one of the most fascinating figures in hip-hop history. His career spans decades, and defies simple narratives. The Rugged Man has been an up-and-coming star, an industry outcast banished and forgotten, an underground cult hero, an independent success story, and an influential master of the art form. He can obliterate rappers with ferocious battle rhymes, craft heartfelt personal songs fans can relate to, offend sensitive listeners with shocking vulgarity, challenge corrupt politicians and corporations, paint pictures with captivating storytelling, and deliver jaw-dropping flows that prove his lyrical skills are unmatched. He’s also worked with a staggering number of hip-hop’s most respected artists, including legends like The Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang, Tech N9ne, Rakim, Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli, Kool G Rap, Public Enemy, Brother Ali, Jedi Mind Tricks and more. And while others struggle to maintain a foothold in the ever-changing rap landscape, R.A. is the rare artist who has become more relevant with time, with each new album more compelling than the last.
Now, after years of anticipation, R.A. The Rugged Man is announcing All My Heroes Are Dead, a new album dropping this spring. He’s also unveiling “Legendary Loser”, the first official single and music video from the album. Produced by Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, "Legendary Loser" is an empowering anthem outlining R.A.'s remarkable life story while showcasing his outlandish personality and undeniably impressive lyricism.
