R.A. The Rugged Man | Bang Boogie | Official Music Video
Has the crazy lunatic legend R.A. The Rugged Man gone soft? The Rugged Man was once the most feared rapper in the industry…blackballed and banned from record label offices, recording studios, and performing in the United States. Now, this hip-hop renegade is debuting his most unexpected video to date, the Father’s Day special “Bang Boogie”. Starring R.A.’s 4-month old daughter making her action debut, “Bang Boogie” finds the notoriously combative Rugged Man doing battle with his most challenging opponent yet: fatherhood. Has the wild, filthy, Crustified Dibbs finally settled down and turned his life around? Will he stop tearing apart stages and start nurturing children? Only time will tell. For now, check out “Bang Boogie” to witness the evolution of an artist who will murder you lyrically while pushing a baby stroller. Directed by Gabe Gasparinatos Color Correction by Alan Gordon at postprogumbo.com Music mixed by Chris Conway CGI by Michael Williamson Baby's rapping mouth: Whitney Peyton “Bang Boogie” is taken from R.A. The Rugged Man's critically-acclaimed album Legends Never Die, which features appearances from Tech N9ne, Talib Kweli, Brother Ali, Hopsin, Vinnie Paz, Krizz Kaliko, Masta Ace, Eamon, and more.
