On the 20th anniversary of DJ Screw’s death, RUEROB’s commemoration in the form of a multipart CAMH Connects will go live. BABA RUEROB and The Everlasting Vibez will perform a Screwed Up Click (S.U.C.) medley in honor of all the fallen soldiers of S.U.C. with an accompanying band. He will also perform two songs from his upcoming mixtape and tell you a little about his journey creating BABA & ME: A Young Man in Search of His Father, his hip-hop musical performance.
About the Series
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, we’re doing everything we can to flatten the curve — but even though the museum is closed, and we’re working from home, we still talk to artists around the world every day. Here in Houston, in Italy, in China, in San Francisco … artists, like all of us, are weathering the coronavirus personally and professionally.
We will bring these conversations with artists — wherever they are — to wherever you are.
About the Artist
Robert D. Jackson, also known as BABA RUEROB, is an actor and recording artist born and bred in Houston, Texas. After graduating with two degrees from NYU funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, RUEROB decided to return to Houston with his one-man hip-hop musical BABA & ME: A Young Man in Search of His Father, which has now been adapted to a traditional mixtape in honor of his father Big Rue of the Screwed Up Click and all the fallen soldiers of S.U.C. He is the CEO/Co-Founder of TORCH, a non-profit organization focused on arts entrepreneurship for emerging artists and has been focused on empowering and inspiring the city of Houston in more ways than one.
