About the ArtistIn a time where hip-hop has been diagnosed as comatose, Pluckk is the “AWAKENING.” Genetically designed by an architect and birthed by an educator in Washington, DC, he was destined to become a lyrical engineer with a background in urban style and street personification. Pluckk grew up during the infamous 80’s and 90’s in the legendary 8th and H Street neighborhood of Northeast D.C., which is known by many as the stomping grounds for some of the most influential people and life changing events in D.C history. The harsh realities of life in the city blended with his passion and hunger for hip hop at a time when D.C was solely dominated by go-go music only fueled his quest for unprecedented success in the world of hip hop.
The illustrious artist Norman Rockwell, who painted basic but brilliant portraits of life, unveiling stories much deeper than the canvas, inspired the moniker Rueben Rockwell. Pluckk embodies the same artistic vision, minus the moniker and true to his District of Columbia given nick name. He is much more than a rapper; he is an artist who paints pictures with prophetic poetry while using music as the landscape and life as the canvas.
Pluckk is the prerequisite MC of the future. Owner of, with out a doubt one of the most credible and lyrically potent styles in Hip-Hop culture. Pluckk speaks to the core of his generation’s defeat by illuminating the truths of the Reagan period, along with the growth and success that accompany the journey that we call, the pursuit of happiness. CityOfGod is smothered with premium production, laced with alluring subtleties and provides listeners with an authentically sound story of an untold past, present and future. CityOfGod is produced by Pluckk himself along with and Dave Foman as well as 4 unreleased HITBOY tracks and last but not least, the official BET American Gangster soundtrack trailer for the episode for Rayful Edmond III. It is the latest of many installments to come from the Don Of the District. Lyrically gifted and politically in tune, Pluckk is the undeniable proof of brilliance in hip-hop culture.
