"Shots from tha Ruger Album Review"

“Out in the pastures of North Carolina, Ed E. Ruger has been planting his verbal seeds for years. Now, with a full crop for the masses, he’s here to present his newest album, “Shots from tha Ruger”. Just listen to his energy backed with the heavy track on the intro and you’ll know what your in for with this album. Like many blunted lyricists before him, Ed E. pays homage to his special little green friends that continue to give him inspiration on the track cleverly titled, “The Weed Song”. “Change” featuring fellow Carolina veteran, Metaphor the Great, is another hard hittin’ song that’ll keep ya head snappin’. Without a doubt, my favorite song is “Old Man”. It’s a track in which Ed E. reflects on his life and the struggles he’s had to face. With one listen, you’ll be able to put yourself in his shoes. So all in all this is a great collection of diverse styles and a must have for all True Heads. So holla at Ed E. Ruger and support your own.”

"Album review"

“Greensboro native Ed E. Ruger began his career at the ripe age of 16 and has been on the grind ever since. Ruger's full-length release, "Shots From Tha Ruger," already has received plenty of buzz. His battle-style raps come straight at you from the first track. The claim of being North Crunk's Finest is backed up with witty metaphors and punch lines that flow over hard, street-influenced beats.
The majority of the tracks on this album are ready to bang in the club. Ruger steps out on "Old Man" and speaks about personal issues. "Old Man" is a track that a lot of people can relate to and find some closure to their own problems. This track was made by one of the Boro's best producers, Double J, who chops up a classic track from a Canadian rocker. The production, the delivery and the message of "Old Man" make this a classic track from one of the hardest-working MCs in Greensboro.
Overall, "Shots From tha Ruger" is a commentary on the scene in the Triad and one MC's journey in it. There are plenty of appearances by the likes of Celinski and Ill Po, not to mention the late, great Tre’ Stylez.”
