Royal Ruckus started with a couple high school kids in Bakersfield, CA in 1998 trying to make positive hip-hop music. They released a number of records, and built a buzz that gained them national attention, and landed them a record deal on a label out of Nashville.
After a fun ride, they ended up quiet for a number of years, soft-releasing a few projects here and there, but largely staying out of the spotlight. In 2017, they return with their most ambitious project ever: a double album, wrapped around a story-line and a metaphor based on the cicada, the strange insect that spends most of its life quietly underground, before coming out to make a royal ruckus above ground for a season. The cicada is every man: longing to live, but spending so much time in preparation for really living.
For their latest project, they called in help from about two dozen of their friends, and made their strongest project ever. It’s a journey through joy and pain, life and death, friendship and struggle.
