Daruddone, a.k.a Rasta Rudd (born Amin Rahman), is an American conscious Hip-Hop/Soul musician from Cordele, Georgia.
Daruddone, who credits his grandfather, an old school DJ, as an early musical influence, grew up listening to various genres of music. In grade school, Rasta Rudd learned to read sheet music, play piano, and play trumpet. Rasta Rudd is known for his distinct Caribbean free flowing rhyming style. His unique rhymes are a mix of street life culture and knowledge of self. Daruddone has been writing lyrics since high school, with his younger brother Fetty Cash. The two continued penning rhymes through technical college where they went on to graduate and become certified welders. He began recording music in 2008 and purchased his own recording studio in 2009. He applied the southern musical experience from groups such as Outkast, GoodieMob, and UGK. He later merged with his older brother, Marty MacFly, and cousin, Koolgi Kid; together with Fetty Cash the four became original members of the Trapville Pyrates which later became known as the Blaq Pyrates. Shortly after, Rudd joined forces with Nephew Shawty and other artists from the East Side of Cordele to form a parallel act known as Nu Money Music. After this short collaboration, he returned exclusively to the Blaq Pyrates bringing Nephew Shawty on board following Koolgi Kid’s departure to form his own group. He and his brother, MacFly, have recently begun forming a children’s rap group as well as a children’s community baseball league in support of nonviolence following the untimely death of their younger brother, Zodoq Banks due to gun violence.
