Muze PNote A genre-straddling debut from this New York session guitarist turned rock/rap frontman, IN THE CITY splices hip-hop beats to glossy arena rock with multi-tracked guitars and U2- sized choruses. The album's lead single, "In the City," features Rudolph trading lines with Lil' Wayne over seamless `80s-influenced production that splits the difference between Gary Numan's "Cars" and Jefferson Starship's "We Built This City."

Artist Overview

A Manhattan-born rock artist signed to the renowned rap-centric Cash Money label, Kevin Rudolf forged a name for himself as a session guitarist with acts such as the Black Eyed Peas and the Neptunes before making the leap to solo performer with 2008's IN THE CITY. Mentored by Timbaland and Lil Wayne, Rudolf incorporates hip-hop into his pop-friendly approach, but largely sticks to a straight-ahead guitar-heavy sound, as best revealed on his hit single, "Let It Rock."
Artist Influences
Kid Rock | Lil Wayne | Linkin Park | Prince | The Neptunes | Timbaland | U2

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (p.75)
- "[A] weirdly infectious debut that mixes his rap-track know-how with his love of guitar-god theatrics." -- Grade: B

Billboard (p.45)
- "[T]he dozen tracks on his solo debut, on which Rudolf plays nearly everything, hew toward the hooky, tuneful and danceable."

Q (Magazine)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Rudolf's sound is his own on an album full of scarf-waving choruses, insistent hooks and surprisingly reflective lyrics."
