Ruggedy Baba is back with a new jam! After taking a seemingly permanent hiatus from the music industry and just resorting to using Social Media to air his views and discontent (He had a back and forth with a certain Marley for a while). He seems to be back in the Music scene and insisting that he is ever relevant.
Eruku starts with some instrumentals playing and Rugged Man doing an introductory greeting to "his people". Generally, the lyrics are decent.
Eruku simply means smoke and according to rugged Man himself in a short interview, he said he meant the actual Smoke. We were trying to make sense of the literal smoke, does he means he is uncatchable if we were to use the intangible property of smoke to get what he was trying to say. It did not quite connect. Another meaning we are aware of and has been used by numerous musicians is Eruku meaning "a Boss like entity". This makes more sense considering the context of what he was saying. Talking about how he has been around for a while and the mention of his name could take an upcoming artist to untold heights in his musical career.
The melody is pretty urban and contemporary. While it is not your regular pure Hip Hop, it stilled had elements of the Hip Hop genre. It has a tuneful and memorable melody.
The instrumentals make a fascinating rhythm. The rhythm and melody combine to form an interesting harmony.
The lyrics were too rated R for us. It was filled with sexual innuendoes and suggestions.
