Ruby Weapon Electronic Press Kit


Ruby Weapon was formed in 2007 out of freestyle rapping and impromptu dance battles performed on the dance floor of local Chicago clubs and parties.

Ruby Weapon is a mobile hiphop-dance-battle-assault team.

We are two emcees, a DJ, and a hype man. Ruby Weapon seeks to transcend the ‘hiphop’ parody dynamic – we have evolved into a strange new genre of multi-layered mash-up content and goofyness. We rap about things like quarter life crises, ass, Nintendo Power and Beckett monthly, and WNBA power forwards.

Ruby Weapon sounds like A Tribe Called Quest had a baby with Peaches that was raised by Sharkula inside of the Mac store.


DJ Select Inverse - spins our pizza beats and creates live sound

Make It So #1 - Rapper/producer/activist/hacktivist

Dr. Dunk - Rapper/videographer/b-boy/producer, front man

Cool Axle Octavius Ruby Weapon’s very own very dangerous hype man.
