Ras Kass

Ras, a member of the Soleside Crew, is one of the dopest MC's to grace a microphone in a long time. His ability to freestyle combined with his offbeat flow make him almost untouchable on any stage anywhere (East Coast, West Coast, the South, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, New York, Tokyo, Kyoto, Frankfurt, Paris, etc....). Freeflowing MC's come and go, but the thing that sets them apart as great, lyrical content. Without it one could be another Kwame or a Paperboy (not to say they weren't the flavor of their day, but it's all about the ability to make heads nod 6 months after the album has dropped).

Ras Kass has that same passion that makes Rakim, Nas, Buckshot, Pac, and Biggie, so near and dear to us. Although he's been slept on by many based on record sales, but he's not after the comercial audience, Ras strictly appeals to real heads (this is just another in a long list of tight albums that have been slept on : Buhloone Mind State, Niggamortis, Thug Life, and Illadelph Halflife). So my advice to you is, if you haven't already, buy the album; go and enjoy the album over and over again; then get your your friends to get the album. Ras Kass is edutainment at it's best.
