R.A. The Rugged Man is the perfect example of an Unsung HipHop artist. Back in the 90"s R.A. was on the rise before he started making executive enemies and choosing Not to "Playball". It's been over 20 years and R.A. is still known as the most lyrical rapper in the Underground. Before Marshall Mathers, Macklemore, and Action Bronson, there was R.A. The Rugged man.
