RA the Rugged Man
You can probably tell from my posts that I don't listen to a lot of rap but it's been a strange week. First I accidentally listened to A Tribe Called Quest's first album(it's hard to mess with the ipod while driving in Vermont). Then I somehow erased most of the music on my ipod which resulted in it playing four songs from Ghostface killahs new album Fishscales. And finally I came across a rapper that I really like on a shoe collector site.
R.A. the Rugged Man is one of those bigger than life rappers who brags a lot and has a bit of a chip on his shoulders but his songs are great. He is a white guy so that is the focus of many of his songs but that's all right. His style is nice and old school sounding(think KRS-One era new York).
Check it out, I know Luke will like it.
