Artist Of The Year: Ruste Juxx (2012)
Well, the cat’s out of the bag. Ruste Juxx is the Hip Hop Dependency Artist Of The Year For 2012! Ruste Juxx really upped his game for 2012. He dropped two different stellar projects. One project was was with French producer Kyo Itachi entitled Hardbodie Hip Hop. The other, more recent project, was with a new favorite of mine, The Arcitype entitled simple, V.I.C.
Ruste Juxx wasn’t just about putting out a couple of great albums, he was on at least a dozen other cuts from other artists, always dropping solid bars. He was by far the most prolific artist of 2012.
One of the most compelling things about Ruste Juxx in 2012 was his flexing his verbal dexterity on the V.I.C. album. He broadened his content and really stepped out in my mind.
So Ruste Juxx, Hip Hop Dependency salutes you! Your accolades are way overdue.
