Ruste Juxx Talks Debut, Clarifies Lyrics

Sean Price's protege waited 10 years to drop his debut, tells DX wack rappers aren't just in the south.

It was almost a decade ago to the date that Ruste Juxx first appeared on record, in the form of two guest verses on Heltah Skeltah's [click to read] Magnum Force album. The Brooklyn emcee spoke to HipHopDX today, 12 hours before releasing his debut Indestructible. "I was putting out a lot of singles out over the years, getting on a lot of Duck Down [Records] tracks. I was working in between, shit was life. I guess it's really the time right now," said Juxx about his patience leading up to today. "I'm glad I'm putting it out right now. A lot of things had to happen for it to get done and shit."

However, those curious about the hold-ups, Juxx says it was all him. "It wasn't like I was waiting for Duck Down to put something out on me; I was doing my own thing. Duck
Down
is my peoples. I'm friends with them outside of rap. We got it
like that. Now I just had the opportunity to drop it there. It's
beautiful. The album is crazy.
"

The album is being executive produced by Sean Price. "He
really put his stamp on it. There's a lot of people that know about me,
but a lot of people don't. My man putting the stamp on it gives it that
extra push. I picked the tracks on the album, whether through the
Internet or producers I was fucking with.
" Producers include Marco Polo and Black Milk.

Lastly, asked about lines from a recent verse on Heltah Skeltah's "So Damn Tough," where he rapped, "Mothafuckas talkin' 'bout I'm hatin' on the south / I'm hatin' all that bullshit niggas is puttin' out." The writer clarified, "What
I'm sayin' is there's a lot of bullshit that I'm hearing on the radio -
a lot of corny rappers. The south is poppin' right now. It just so
happens a lot of the shit is from over there. It's a lot of hot shit
over there - Scarface, Ludacris [click to read], T.I. [click to read], UGK, 8Ball & MJG,
a lot of a hot artists, but there's a lot of wack artists. That's why I
said, 'Bullshit is bullshit, from BK to VA.' I'm telling niggas, I'm
not saying [everybody] is wack; some New York rappers is wack. Wack
rappers everywhere.
"

Indestructible is in stores tomorrow.
