R.A. the Rugged Man makes as much sense in his rhymes as you will find in the rules of capitalization applied to his name. Most rap consumers have dismissed R.A. as a bit of a sideshow freak, a mediocre rapper with a cult following, hip hop’s Roger Corman. Frankly, for a guy who started off rapping with Biggie, the Rugged Man has slowly carved out a pretty uneventful career. He has had no real albums of significant objective success, critically or market wise. He seemed to completely fail at capitalizing on the white rapper wave that Eminem popularized, he should have been ready to surf that. He also has struggled to acquire a reasonable Gilette razor for the past decade, he has that Pau Gasol beard, which is significantly less forgivable in the Rugged Man’s case.
However, one thing that R.A. has done lately is put out some pretty dope viral music videos. This hilarious video for “Posse Cut” is truly entertaining, nothing goes together like classic flows and home invasions. Oh yeah, and peep the following track with R.A. and Biggie, politely titled “Cunt Renaissance”.
