Kevin Rudolf ft. Nas - NYC

In the City

Later this month, Cash Money Records, in conjunction with Universal Republic, will release the debut of their newest solo artist, Kevin Rudolf. Uncharacteristically for the longstanding hip-hop imprint, however, Rudolf isn’t a rapper.  Born in Manhattan, the multi-talented musician first picked up a guitar at the age of 11.  While pursuing a mastery of his craft, Rudolf received his first big break after being introduced to superstar producer Timbaland.  Several years later, collaborations with Nelly Furtado, Black Eyed Peas, and LL Cool J followed.  Now, thanks to an impressive resume, the alt-urban artist is at the forefront of stardom.  Following his Lil’ Wayne-featuring introductory single, Let It Rock, Rudolf returns with NYC; featuring Nas, this ode to his home city will be found on the aforementioned debut, In The City, out on November 25.
