Ruby Yo / Press

“The googolplex-threat, Ruby Yo does it all: music, acting, comedy, theater. Born and raised on Chicago’s south-side, Ruby Yo fuses her talents to create raw hip-hop music. As a multi-talented, and multi-media artist Ruby doesn’t shy away from giving you a wide range of musical style and sound. You can hear the heavy influence of hip-hop classics like Tupac and Biggie, in her narrative verses on Keeps Killing Me. Also, she doesn’t forgot her Puerto Rican roots on tracks like Estrella Caida (Fallen Star).”

“HER STORY: Give this girl a microphone and a stage and witness Marilyn Camacho transform into Ruby Yo!, an interdisciplinary artist with a kaleidoscope of creative talent. Whether it’s flowing to a hip-hop beat or projecting her onstage Emcee persona, Ruby can fuse her love of theater and music to create progressive tracks and entertain an audience with her timeless feel.”

“What do you want to say with your music? What is your message? Can you live from your music already? What are your future goals? Ruby: I think, more than anything, my music is just a reflection of my various personas, characters.. just like when I’m acting. The one common factor you will hear in my music, is that it’s aggressive and very in your face. I’m definitely a storyteller and I tell stories of my own and others, who inspire me to write the stories.”

“Marilyn Camacho AKA Ruby Yo! is a force to be reckoned with. She may be strikingly beautiful but upon meeting her you also know that Ruby Yo! is not just a pretty face. This talented actress performs under the name Ruby Yo! and is a refreshing new addition to the female hip-hop game without selling her sexy. Ms. Camacho is part owner of Urban Theater, a company in Chicago that works to bring brown playwrights and actors to the stage and is about to celebrate both the opening of the company’s production of ”Fucking A” March 20th and her first performance at South by Southwest Music Festival later this week. I am so in awe of this woman I just had to introduce you to her.”

“It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen something new from Monkeee on FSD. Well today he returns alongside Ruby Yo! for an ode to his favorite drink.”

“I Still Love H.E.R.

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the I Still Love H.E.R. event held every fourth Monday at the Sub-T that supports Hip Hop represented through the feminine experience, LadyGemStar and KickAssAlyssia bring to you the mixtape, I Still Love H.E.R. hosted by DJ Alo.

“RUBY YO! will be headlining the evening, and has promised to perform a 4 song set that features songs ranging from the lows and highs of love, to sweet revenge, partying, and the experience of growing up in Chicago’s inner city. Ruby Yo! (aka Marilyn Camacho) is a long time Luna friend, having recently been seen in Teatro Luna’s GL 2010. We can’t wait to see her make it to the big leagues with her music. Catch this performance as she plans to unveil some never before heard music!”
