Its hard to take the Rugged Man seriously, is he just playing a character? or is he like this in real life? I often wonder if he talks like that in real life? I think he has skills and at times his flow is top grade. At times he says some crazy stuff and can be annoying but this artist is not stupid and says some clever rhymes, i think he is just playing the part of a crazy mad man.
Maybe one day he will perform live wearing a straight jacket.
