Biography

ELEVATED RUFFIANS is a fellowship between elevatedSOUL, the three-man production team from Los Angeles, and Magnificent Ruffians, a two emcee + one DJ crew from SoCal’s Inland Empire(IE). The crew met four years ago in a recording studio one lazy afternoon in Southern California and immediately hit it off largely due to their passion for grimy, offbeat, dirty, hiss laden souljazz and artistic-futuristic boom-bap genre of hip hop. The Elevated Ruffians line-up consist of emcees Specific(Jerome Mitchell), Master Chief (Eon Rhodius) and DJ Sway Deez (Soweto Rembert) from the Magnificent Ruffians; backed by beatsmiths; ORA-KL (Karl Oracion), Fushuz (Edward Galura) and Godchild (AJ De Leon) from elevatedSOUL.

After vibing for about two years, Elevated Ruffians burst into IE’s burgeoning indie hip hop scene with “The Magnificent Soul LP”. The 41 track double CD is produced entirely by elevatedSOUL and features guest appearances by Vast Aire (“Nothing Can Stop Me”) of Cannibal Ox, Stone Throw Records’ Oh No (“Watch your Step”), Disco aka Derek Buck from the legendary Globetroddas crew (“The Snap Track” & “Ain’t Got Time”) and a slew of Inland Empire’s finest emcees; Noah James (Building Blocks), ENO.D (tha Othas), Cornbread (Kaliwild) and Brother Dvoooa to name a few.
