R.A. The Rugged Man - The People’s Champ

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Apathy
Album:

Previously featured as a guest contributor to Thelonious King, a reader-approved promotional cut by West Coast rapper/producer Blu, R.A. The Rugged Man makes his grand entrance into the solo Booth spotlight with The Peoples Champ, single numero uno off his next studio album. After a hype spoken-word intro from B.K. stalwart Rampage, the Suffolk County rhymesayer hits the ground running, showcasing his dense, allusive rhyme style over Demigodz/Army of the Pharaohs member Apathy‘s addictive choral-vocal loops. (Anyone I.D. that sample for me?) For this crowd-pleasing cut and many more where it came from, cop R.A.‘s Legends Never Die LP when it hits record stores and online retailers April 30, via Nature Sounds.
