About David Ruffin Theory
By Tef Poe & The Knuckles
Mixed by Trackstar The DJ
"We're trying to represent a renaissance man type of energy, where people made music and they didn't feel the need to cater to the social standards of the day. We're giving people real emotion, real unsolicited human thought and just trying to be as creative as we can with it." - Tef Poe

About The Knuckles
Rockwell Knuckles is a hip hop/rap artist from St. Louis, Missouri. He has performed at SXSW and has been nominated for several Riverfront Times Music Awards. On August 30, 2010 a reviewer on Uproxx.com wrote, "Every SXSW creates new stars. It's undeniable. Everyone that attends leaves the event excited about the performance of a relative unknown, claiming that said artist is going to be the next big music star. Last year was my first SXSW and the artist I pinpointed for greatness was B.o.B. This year I pegged two acts for stardom: Yelawolf and Rockwell Knuckles." On April 13, 2010 his song "Government Name" was featured on Good Music All Day.
