"ED E RUGER - ZIPLOCKED & LOADED"

“Ed E Ruger brings his arsenal in Ziplocked & Loaded, his fourth solo album which is fully loaded with sixteen bangers, no blanks in this clip. The North Carolinian rapper kicks it off with "40 Bars" Produced by J.J The Jenius, where he speaks of his hard work and the struggles even before the music, a great way to get acquainted with Ed E and a great opener.”

"Workingman's grind: Ed E. Ruger's new album is a slice of blue-collar hip-hop life"

“Big shows seem to be coming more often these days for Ruger, who just recently opened up for noted producer RJD2. It’s all about networking, he explained as he walked through Greene Street, slapping hands with Joe Scudda and bumping fists with Sadat X.”

"Tru Grit Winner 13 "The Radio is Oversaturated With Scrubs""

“If our breakdown of why he's earned a spot on our gritty list ain't enough, then take a glance at the "other" co-signs he's received. Having his tracks featured on "The Boondocks" and "Breaking Bad" is a pretty good look, but it's hitting the same stage alongside rap stars including Public Enemy, Wiz Khalifa, Method Man, Redman, Young Buck, The Clipse and Cassidy that has us wondering if we should start up our own SOHH Records and lasso him in to a deal.”

"Dummy Disease"

“Long story short… 4 bars in and I was a fan! To me this is probably the realest song to date this year! This song paints a clear picture of the buffoonery taking place in the current state of corporate hip pop and does an excellent job of bringing the bullshit into perspective! Humorous yet entertaining and educational. That equals Edutainment in my book which equals REAL HIP HOP! Check out” Dummy Disease” by Ed E. Ruger.”
