Rap Phenom, RudeBoy, Brings In Big Crowds With His New Music

By Erika Hertol

RudeBoy is the name Andrew Knowles has chosen to identify himself amongst the sea of Rap artists. He has been a mainstay in the hot climate of South Florida for many years. Reign Entertainment – piloted by David Abellard – has featured this rapper phenom to large and satisfied crowds.

Andrew moved from Freeport in the Bahamas to South Florida’s Dade county when he was only three years old. He lived with his mother while his father lived a nomadic life, moving often. His father maintained contact through personal visits and phone conversations. He ended-up in prison when Knowles was only six.

The future rapper and his mother found times very tough after his father’s imprisonment. His mom’s mother-in-law – Andrew’s Grandma – took them under her roof. To support herself and her boy, Andrew’s mom had to work two jobs.

Andrew loved to entertain. He participated in plays and talent shows throughout his school days. He began rapping and writing when he was only fourteen. His passion was a priority. By sixteen, his passion became his life-goal when he sought-out professionals to launch a career.

Demos were sent to several labels and Mike Green at Platinum Recording Studios liked what he heard and helped Andrew acquire studio time. When he was 18, Andrew moved up the coast to Palm Beach County. He had doubts about his chances of success with the popular rap scene. Like his mother before him, he took on two jobs to survive. A couple of years later he met Smif-N-Gunz – local music producers – and reconnected with his passion.

David Abellard and Reign Entertainment continue today as strong associates with RudeBoy. Power 96 of Miami have aired his material. Local performances have given the exposure needed for Rap fans to spread the word about this young thriving talent. In 2008, his work received great reviews. Having lived the classical life of a would-be Rapper, Andrew’s passion and talent combine well to give him the chance – along with the needed professionalism of Abellard and Reign – to make his work known around the country and world of Rap.

RudeBoy is continuing to expand his rap career, thanks to his new connection with Reign Entertainment. You can get pictures and biographical information by visiting today.
