Cincinnati native, Justin Ruff is an up-and-coming R&B artist in Chicago. His unique sound/style has garnered the attention of JET, ABC's Windy City and Cincinnati's #1 radio station, 101.1 The Wiz, to name a few. Ruff released his debut EP, The Ruff Draft, in January 2016 which debuted in iTunes Top 100 on the R&B/Soul charts.

Since its release, he’s been awarded great opportunities, such as opening for Grammy-Award winning artist, Chrisette Michele, Ginuwine, R&B Songstress, K Michelle, Teedra Moses and R&B group, Dru Hill. He was also selected to headline the Bud Light stage, opening night, at the 2017 Taste of Chicago. Ruff is showing no signs of slowing down as he recently released new music, YOU and Diamonds (Nothing On You). These are the leading tracks from his upcoming mixtape, Harvey Ave., set to release Spring 2018. He says this will be his most personal project to date.
