R.A the Rugged Man’s career began in 1992, when he was signed to Jive records as a fresh faced 18-year old. Since then he has worked with some of the greatest Hip-Hop artists of the era, recording with Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap and the Notorious B.I.G. Biggie has even been quoted as stating, “I thought I was the illest”, when referring to R.A.
“All Flows Reach Out” or perhaps better known as the abbreviated ‘AFRO’ is an 18 year old MC sensation from LA. As a success story of the digital age, AFRO grew to fame from a viral video of his audio submission to RA The Rugged Man’s “Definition of a Rap Flow” content. With glowing endorsements from the hip hop World, perhaps most notably from The Roots’ Questlove who remarked that AFRO is “the future of hip-hop”, we’re very lucky to welcome this hugely talented individual to the Jazz Café.
