Crustified Dibbs was intended to be RA and Niles (who also handled some of the album’s production). Yet, the moniker (Crustified Dibbs) has always been associated with RA as a soloist. “‘Night of the Bloody Apes’” was the only album by the duo, a release that served as a perfect vehicle for Long Island’s Rugged Man to make a splash within the underground hip-hop scene. After a bidding war between record labels, RA was signed to Jive Records. The album features production from the likes of Erick Sermon, as well as D.I.T.C.’s Buckwild. Many rumors surrounding the ‘shelving’ of this project have circulated over the years, but it’s believed to be due to lewd behavior of RA at the Jive offices (it’s well documented in Ego Trip’s Book Of Rap Lists, that R.A. was accused of sexually harassing one of his female label-mates among other things) and the content of the record which involved sex, gore and extremely profane language turned the label off.
