Rugged N Raw has always been a special artist in NYC's hip-hop scene, as he's equal parts, skillful, charismatic, and hilarious. His latest single, an ode to checking out women titled "Every 5 Minutes," combines all three of those qualities.
The first verse contains one of my favorite lines, as it's something many of us have experienced; "Fell in love four times on the subway," he raps, "twice more on my lunch break."
"Every 5 Minutes" is off of Rugged N Raw's upcoming album, Anomaly Book 2, and if the single is any indication, it's going to be a heck of a project.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
