Aside from doing his own headlining shows Ruslan has toured with his collective Dream Junkies (John Givez & Beleaf Mel) and has performed along side world-class acts such as Lecrae, Snoop Dogg, Murs, Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang Clan, Arrested Development and War.
Ruslan plans to continues using his platform to bring positive change through Hip-Hop and poetry. He also hosts The Kings Dream podcast, produces a youtube vlog and runs his own independent label, Kings Dream Entertainment.
