Venom debuts on SpitFireHipHop with his ‘Ruff N Tuff’ album.
One man, arrived from a foreign land with his Ensoniq ASR-X machine,Â a challenger ready for action, with something to prove, will have to defeatÂ the toughest opponents in a music tournament. Especially the worst of all: Himself.
â€œRuff NÂ Tuffâ€Â Â is the debut album of theÂ Marvel RecordsÂ artistÂ Venom, aÂ Producer/Remixer, best known for hisÂ production work of the latestÂ Blaq PoetÂ “The Most Dangerous”Â andÂ Marquee “Femme Fatale”Â albums. Venom is also halfÂ of the production duo NinjusticeÂ with Kyo Itachi.
“Ruff NÂ Tuff” is aÂ true “producer album” in the veins of Eric Sermon’sÂ â€œInsomniaâ€ or Pete Rockâ€™s â€œSoul Survivorâ€,Â not just a compilation but a project with a deep concept that sounds like no other.Â It shows a wayÂ to use music as a weapon. With impressive production skills,Â VenomÂ punched the pads with brass knuckles to push his machines to their last limits.Â Hard hitting drums, samples and razor sharp cuts build the foundation his guests, includingÂ Camp Lo, M E D (Stone Throw), Rah Digga, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Ras Kass, Conway,Â The Legion, Shadez Of Brooklyn, Marquee andÂ Nolan The Ninja,Â can shine on.
On top of that the cover is hand-painted by the legendaryÂ Melki,Â who did classic movie coversÂ such as Nightmare On Elm Street, Creepshow or Buckaroo Banzai.
