Ruude was a hip-hop rapper from the 80's. Not much information is given about him, but he was signed to Avenue Records.

In 1985, he released the single, "It's Hot (Summertime)." It's unknown how or if the single ever charted and after that it seemed as if Ruude has faded into obscurity.

To see a fan-made video for "It's Hot (Summertime)," go to:

We were a group of three rappers from Jackson State University. The actual name of the group was "The Rude Boys". Somebody messed that up before it went to print. We signed a deal with a bad manager and everything went south quick. We never made a dime from the record and never recorded together again. McDuffie aka Mac D
