Ohh Raasssss! For those that don't know, Ras G is a crucial component of the LA beat scene. As co-founder of Poo-Bah Records, and Low End Theory regular, Ras has been pushing the edge of hip-hop beats and free jazz, fusion, and afrofuturism for a minute now. Raw Fruit Vol. 1 & 2 were actually originally released as limited cassette runs on Matthewdavid's Leaving Records imprint. The tapes sold out with the quickness, but luckily they've been given the double vinyl treatment for those lacking a proper magnetic tape playing device. Check the samples and you'll find there are some seriously heavyweight beats all over this piece. Cop, spark and get live. Includes free mp3 download, recommended.
