    Product Details

    Summary

    ELEVATED RUFFIANS is a fellowship between elevatedSOUL, the three-man production team from Los Angeles, and Magnificent Ruffians, a two emcee + one DJ crew from Southern California's Inland Empire (IE). The crew met four years ago in a recording studio one lazy afternoon in Southern California and immediately hit it off largely due to their passion for grimy, offbeat, dirty, hiss laden souljazz and artistic-futuristic boom-bap genre of hip hop. The Elevated Ruffians line-up consist of emcees Specific(Jerome Mitchell), Master Chief (Eon Rhodius) and DJ Sway Deez (Soweto Rembert) from the Magnificent Ruffians; backed by beatsmiths; ORA-KL (Karl Oracion), Fushuz (Edward Galura) and Godchild (AJ De Leon) from elevatedSOUL.

    After vibing for about two years, Elevated Ruffians burst into IE's burgeoning indie hip hop scene with "The Magnificent Soul LP". The 41 track double CD is produced entirely by elevatedSOUL and features guest appearances by Vast Aire ("Nothing Can Stop Me") of Cannibal Ox, Stone Throw Records' Oh No ("Watch your Step"), Disco aka Derek Buck from the legendary Globetroddas crew ("The Snap Track" & "Ain't Got Time") and a slew of Inland Empire's finest emcees; Noah James (Building Blocks), ENO.D (tha Othas), Cornbread (Kaliwild) and Brother Dvoooa to name a few.

    Comment: HELL???? Have I been under a rock???? How could I have missed this raw??? Too many questions and not enough praise. Mag Ruff LOVES to make double albums. Damn these boys don't play. The iller shit is that out of 30 some odd joints they make you (fags and non aficionados of quality sound) love at least ten. Just so happens I am a fan so it is always at least 95% for my ears. Mag Ruff... always sound so unrehearsed and blaze heat at first hammer cock. Locked loaded and primed. Get on it. I knew who it was and I bought it without even hearing it first.

    Comment: This is a good album but it does play a bit long & slow, but to get 42 songs for 13.00 is always a good deal...I'm feelin the soul samples, but the second disk got a bit long... The Mc's are cool but not earth shattering but the production & samples are well done....I look forward to hearing more from this group.....

    Comment: Nothing but realness from the east side of the west coast. dope beats + dope lyrics + raw hip hop= Elevated Ruffians. Buy the album, you'll be inspired by the endless array of bangers. All heat, triple digits. Support true hip hop. Keep your ears open. The saga continues. Alumni stand up.

    Comment: Are you kidding me this is instant classic. 41 tracks of slap you in the face raw Hip-Hop. the beats with those samples are bananas. The concepts are dope, and the lyricism is off the meat rack. I loved it from the first joint until "it was over" lol. a must have for any hip-hop or music enthusiast.
