*This event was rescheduled from Friday 10 April. All tickets remain valid.
Few artists are ever as controversial as they are influential. New York legend R.A. the Rugged Man has lived up to such a moniker by simultaneously inspiring generations of rappers while being banned from every major record label’s offices and even barred from performing during the late-90s underground explosion.
Beginning his music career at age 12, building a reputation locally for his lyrical skills. R.A. signed to major label Jive Records at age 18.
He has worked with the likes of Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang Clan, Kool G Rap, and Notorious B.I.G., as well as producers Erick Sermon, Trackmasters, DJ Quik, The Alchemist, J-Zone, and Ayatollah.
Opening up the show on the evening will be London’s very own Shao Dow.
