Nareiq Ansel Millette, aka Ruga Reiq was born on April 16, 1996 in Queens NY. Reiq has always had a love for music, recording his first track at age 14 on only a mic and a dell computer. Since then he has recorded hundreds of tracks and his hard-spitting, energetic vibe rings clear through them all. Reiq then continued to develop his style and hone his craft throughout his teenage years growing up all over Queens NY.
Although he lived with his mother in Southside Jamaica Queens. He also spent some time and went to school in the Laurelton Queens where his grandmother resided. This is where you can say Ruga Reiq was invented. Hanging with new friends, at a new school, banging beats out on the table. Reiq quickly realized he was better than most. After a few classroom cyphers and after schools battles he quickly became dubbed RUGA REIQ
At the age of 16, he had his first child Layla. Another inspiration for him to strive harder with his dream and achieve his goal of being a successful artist. In 2016, he had his second child Isabel and since then has truly come into his own as both a man and an artist. Ruga Reiq has a genuine gift of making music and also sings extremely well. Much to the surprise of many. His debut Mixtape Thug Passion was release in mid 2018, has over 700,000 streams to date. Currently available on all major streaming all platforms.
