Hip-hop artist hailing from Los Angeles. Ab Rude is lyrically very imaginative and expressive. Co-founded Project Blowed with Aceyalone.
He has been part of the groups Abstract Tribe Unique (or just ATU) and Haiku de' Tat. He also is part of the A-Team with Aceyalone, his deep bass and lyrical style complementing Acey's quite well.
Ab Rude, along with the Freestyle Fellowship and others, is one of the defining voices of L.A.'s hip-hop movement. For a good introduction to Abstract Rude, check out Haiku de' Tat.
