Book David Rush » Every day of his life is another step in his dream of bringing the David RUSH sound to the world. Of course, we all have aspirations to dream big… but the only difference between us and David RUSH is that, according to the odds, he shouldn’t be here right now. David RUSH is feeling more than positive, and he’s taking everything in life very personal. More than an artist, David RUSH is a dynamic example of Highland Park, New Jersey.
Despite his passion for the music, David had a solid plan to pursue his education at the same time. He made a big move to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta for video production. During his time there, he learned how to finesse Pro-Tools, and began mixing his own music on the side. The young lyricist, then known as Young Boss, got involved in the local Atlanta scene, and earned his reputation as a multi-faceted artist.
David began working with Atlanta producer Soundz, and stayed in touch as he moved back to Jersey to decide his future after college. Upon revisiting Atlanta, David and Soundz came up with the song “Go Girl,” a sexy anthem that sent ladies to the dance floor in droves. He first performed the sexy anthem at the Collision Course Music and Fashion Concert in Atlanta. He took the track back to New Jersey’s club circuit, and the reaction was undeniable. It wasn’t long before the song spread throughout the East Coast, eventually landing on the desk of Miami Hip Hop star Pitbull, who quickly signed Young Boss to his Mr. 305 label.

I try to keep it as Jersey as possible and still represent myself. It is about where you’re from and what you rep and all that, but to me, it’s about the music. I make ‘Moon Music’ – I’m out of here. It’s on a different level and a different plane, and it’s something that’s futuristic. I try to hold myself to that at every time.”
With a personal commitment to forge ahead, denouncing any labels or restrictions life might bring about, David RUSH knows exactly who he is now. “I want people to think of me as a true artist and a person who really breathes and loves this. The rush for me is the rush of the game; the rush when I record and do shows; the rush of wanting to get on and help my family, help my mother’s situation financially; help myself and the people around me who have rolled with me through this whole experience. It’s the rush that I’m in to get everything going. To make sure I was on my grind harder than everybody else, to get where I’m at quicker than everybody else. When they think of David RUSH, I want them to think of somebody who took it there because he had to
