Courtesy Park Street PR.
Ruthless is a talented up and coming UK Hip-Hop artist from Watford, Hertfordshire - who has been raised through troubled teenage years, all leading up to him releasing his built up anger, energy and emotion on his unique style of independantly manufactured music. Ruthless didn't finish school, instead - done what he could to get by since the age of twelve, but lately, the unfortunate death of his father (in his own words) made him "grow up" - and focus on what gave his dad his proudest moments.
His music. Ruthless is a focused, committed artist and has consistently been releasing FREE E.P's, Mixtapes and singles for hip hop fans all over the world to download: from Canada to New York, Europe to Australia, Thailand back to UK! with impressivley professional music videos (ALL independantly paid for) since October 2010 - when he dropped his well received EP with Escape Route Music entitled 'The EP (The Educated People)' - This four track E.P. included the production skills of Dead-Man Walkn and Ill Thought Prcess, with a MASSIVE collaboration from UK Hip-Hop legend Genesis Elijah!
Last year in 2011 Ruthless upped the ante and unleashed a superb fifteen tracker entitled 'From Then Till Now' as well as more recently releasing the 'The Archive Amnesty Takeover' produced by Dead Man Walkn.

This year has barely begun and it's already been filled with a lot of great developments and opportunities for myself and my team. I am very grateful to be in this position and would like to share my experience with those that are close to me.
With that said, I will be performing alongside the legendary hip hop duo, Camp Lo, on February 15, 2012 at Harlows in Sacramento, CA. They're album, Uptown Saturday Night, to me was one of the best put together projects of that time. I used to listen to "Luchini" on repeat for hours.
In response to the tremendous feedback and support I've gotten from the promo video we just released for "Comes & Goes" with Leksbeat, I have decided to perform this song for the 1st time LIVE at this show. It's my way of thanking you for the love and showing you that your support is very important to me.
I don't know if you can tell through this email but I am very excited about this show. I'd love to see as many familiar faces there as possible because at the end of the day, what's the use of doing this if I can't share it with people that are close to me.
For presale tickets go to www.harlows.com. If you can't make it to this show and are going to be in the LA area, I will also be performing on February 10 at The Stardust. More info on my FB wall.
Vintage is coming soon!

Congrats to the New York Giants for winning Super Bowl XLVI. Prior to the game, Opt & Dox dropped a song dedicated to the squad.
http://www.facebook.com/optmusic Congratulations to The GMEN for making it to Super Bowl XLVI!!! Being a Giants fan, y'all know I had to formulate a banger for players and fans. I brought my man Dox from Aquavibe along for the anthem and of course he does what he does. This track was produced by yours truly. Enjoy this, bump it, and stay hype y'all...Let's Go GMEN!!!
