"Rugby Wild Finds a Perfect Summer Flow on "Scuffs""

Rugby Wild's forthcoming double album, Millennials, is billed as a summer record about growing up and living in the moment, combining breezy Californian influences with New York lyricism. The album's first track, "Topanga," was a sweet balance between the two, the New Jersey rapper flowing over a maximal beat and some buried slap bass. But the latest track from the project, "Scuffs," premiering on Noisey today, is the best yet. The bass is heavier, the flow is more precise, but it's still light enough to stick around as a summer track. Actually, it's perfect for rolling around New York, smoking weed, and drinking beer on top of buildings, just as Rugby Wild does in the video. - NOISEY (VICE)

"Rugby Wild, “Topanga” Director: Darrell Nash"

L.A. rapper Rugby Wild released a video this week about his search for the coolest girl with “Topanga.” Clocking in at just under two minutes, Rugby Wild slyly raps through nostalgic production and funky synths. The video shows him in his beloved city, puffing on weed and hanging out with various women as neon colors pulse throughout the visual. It’s a fun throwback to the ’80s and it shapes Rugby Wild to be one of the coolest rappers to come out as of late. - Mass Appeal

R.U.G.B.Y.W.I.L.D. means “Regardless, U Gotta Be Yourself Whether I Live or Die,” an acronym that 24-year-old Rugby Wild came up with as a means to make his name represent him a little better. Hailing from the avenues of Newark and New York City, Rugby is rising fast on the West Coast hip-hop scene, and he’s the kind of artist who was born into his chosen profession by being focused, innovative, and driven. He began rapping in the fourth grade at the age of 10 when he learned he could rhyme “dice” with “ice”. His English teacher at the time was having her students write their own books so he began writing stories through rhyme. That, along with listening to his father’s collection of rap albums on cassette made Rugby want to pursue a career in hip-hop. Rugby pulls from his own streetwise stories to create high-energy songs with powerful rhymes. He launched himself into the national spotlight with infectious tracks that mix fast-moving wordplay with world-class audio and video production. Now living in Los Angeles, Rugby has been able to draw inspiration from both Newark and L.A. to find a balance in his music and bridge the gap between both coasts. His goal is for his music to affect people from everywhere. He wants his fans to know that it’s OK to be yourself and that fitting in isn’t as fun as it looks.
