Struggle Hustle Love
Dustin (Mr) Ruff is one of the most extraordinary rappers to have ever layed his lips on a spit soaked stage mic. His presence and charisma is comparable to that zit on your girlfriends face, you just can't stop looking at it. And his style is untouchable and harder to hold on to than a meth head's teeth. On a serious note though, Mr Ruff is a WI native but a representative of St. Paul Minneapolis since 97. His rap career started with the group 7th St. Coincidence. Which consisted of Random Thoughts, and DJ Espada of Rhymesayers Radio. Now working on his first solo album, 'Struggle Hustle Love', Mr Ruff has enlisted the powerful production of the Unknown Prophets Big Jess, and DJ Willy Lose. Production also comes from Dialogue Elevaters own DJ Last Word. Other producers include King Otto, HiJack, and Poor Boy whose beat on the single 'Apologize' will definitely make you bob your head. Other emcees appearing on this record are Random Thoughts, Noah B from Twisted Linguistics, Big Jess, and Mohs. Mr. Ruff has shared the stage with almost every emcee in the Twin Cities at one time or another, and can easily hold his own and keep the asses on the dance floor. Currently he's rapping up his debut album 'Struggle, Hustle, Love' due to drop in May of '06. Also he's working on projects with DJ Willy Lose called 'Dollar Beers' and a 'ya better move your ass to this joint' EP with Poorboy.
