Pink Ruby aims to be unforgettable. With a striking voice that pushed her debut hit, “Big Mouth,” to over 15 million Spotify streams after its release two years ago, she’s on the right track. Her sonic timbre combined with sexually liberated lyrics, along with her earlier popularity as a social media influencer and video vixen also brought more fanfare. Like many new generation artists, being multifaceted in different fields is more common than not, but don’t judge this book by its cover. She seeks longevity in hip-hop. Lexington native Ky. Can rap with a distinct flair, which earned her a contract with Hitco Entertainment in 2019. Now she’s a 2021 XXL First-year student in order to leave a lasting legacy, which she shares in her version of XXL‘s ABC.
From the beginning, Ruby brings everything back to humble beginnings. “Atlanta for A,” says the 23-year-old rapper from a Mormon family. “I moved here for high school and college and started my music career here, so.” She has her first mixtape, For the streets, and collaborations with Future and PartyNextDoor on “Whole Lotta Liquor”, among others, to show it. CREAM is her motto when it comes to C, ginormous for anything extravagant and over the top with G, and bubble gum ice cream is one of her favorite treats when the letter I appears.
Love is the first word that comes to RubyThe spirit of L. “I love love,” she admits. “I’m a Libra. I love seeing people in a relationship. I want myself in a relationship.” Rubi, who was born to an East African mother and multiracial father – he was adopted and is believed to be Japanese and white – certainly conveys love through his ABCs to a variety of different women in his life. Karjah, her stylist, for K; Scarlette, her sister, for S and Zighereda, her grandmother, for Z. The rising artist also casts her own name, which also serves as a government name and rap nickname, for R.
It focuses on ‘taking charge’ as XXL Freshman for T and has a fearless spirit in his goal of being an unforgettable name for U: “You will never forget my music, that face and my legacy that I will leave.”
With X, Rubi names one of the main leaders of the civil rights movement. “X is for Malcom X”, she expresses. “Power to the people.”
