About the Artist:
Most artists want to be considered “international” but few are. Already considered one of the most gifted lyricists in Nigeria, Rukus has already covered his bases as a rising international star with his music having received radio play in the U.S., U.K., Nigeria, and Ghana. With his roots in Nigeria, Rukus’ touching rap remix to TuFace’s “African Queen” garnered attention from the United Nations, and prompted Nigerian superstar eLDee to feature him on the remix to his smash hit “Big Boy” in 2008 alongside rising stars Iceberg Slim and US rap star, Chiddy Bang. Within the same year two songs off Rukus’ Can’t Forget mixtape were featured in Hip-Hop Critic’s Top 100 songs of 2008 in the US. In 2009, the well-spoken rapper received critical acclaim with his song “Dear Tatiana” which received heavy airplay in California and was offered placement in the Forest Whitaker directed film, Fruitvale Station. In 2012 he signed to African record-label giant Trybe Records.
