Back in the 90s, R.A. the Rugged Man was loved by his hip-hop peers for his craft and ability, but was hated and feared by the music industry. Banned from record label offices, recording studios, and even from performing in the U.S., the Rugged Man was truly shut out. Recently, Wu-Tang rapper Method Man recalled this era, including the time Def Jam refused to let him work with R.A. on a collaboration.
