Name: Ruby Ibarra
Reppin’: San Lorenzo, CA
My style and/or skills have been compared to: Raekwon, Lupe Fiasco
My standout records and/or moments have been: I’ve been fortunate enough to be featured on noted web-based publications such as WorldStar Hip Hop (garnering over 200k views), Bossip, Myx.TV as well as MTV & VH1′s blogs, and shared the stage with Grind Time Now at Rock the Bells 2011 in the Bay Area.
I’m gonna change the game by: Creating music with both substance and lyrical technique. I want to bring back raw, gritty hip-hop that was about spitting your illest verses and being the best on the mic. I also plan on using this platform to educate and tell the stories that’s been left untold by the media.
I’d Like to Work With: It would be an absolute dream to work with RZA, Eminem, Lauryn Hill, Lupe Fiasco, DJ Premier, and J. Cole
My goal in hip-hop is: To continue being honest in my writing while continuing to challenge myself lyrically. I also want my music to be heard on a grander scale.
I’m gonna be the next: Artist to look out for in the game.
