Fresh out of High School, Lil' Rufus immediately attracted the attention of Big Gates execs with his stylish presentation, clean and clear delivery, and passionate lyrics. Lil Rufus was signed soon after graduation, and has been writing music ever since. First thrown into the spotlight at an early age, Lil' Rufus made listeners fall in love with his talented performances while appearing in a variety of local talent shows and performance showcases in Ft Myers, Florida. Encouraged by his late father, Lil Rufus gained a strong work ethic and an indomitable spirit. Inspired by Barack Obama's presidential win in November of 2008, Lil' Rufus quickly penned a song, "This Is The Year Of Obama", which took off so rapidly, he was invited to perform the track in front of the president himself during the inauguration ceremonies weeks later. With his newly released track "Merry Go Round", combined with the upcoming release of his new mixtape “A Man’s Point of View” and his other musical successes, Lil' Rufus is an artist with a lot of inspiration, talent, and a fresh perspective to offer the world of R&B.
