The culture of Rap and Hip-Hop has expanded over the years in both positive and negative ways. To its credit, it has provided a voice to the downtrodden and disenfranchised, allowing people to share their struggles and triumphs. Others however have used the art form to glorify violence and materialism. Styles vary wildly but for Ill Ruckus, the beats, rhymes, and wordplay are all about bringing the positive vibes back to Hip-Hop, one song at a time.
ILL Ruckus aka SIDD is a hip hop artist from the DMV area (Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia).
