Watts (California, USA) emcee Ras Kass has been doing his thing since the 90s, and that's a good thing. Here's another good thing: his joint "Judas" (featuring Planet Asia and Chace Infinite). This is the lead single off "Barmaggedon" - the Ras LP. Now, iTunes offers a pre-order for a mid-February release; but we found a Bandcamp link at which you could stream and buy the LP today! With lyrical features from Monie Love and Ice-T to Kendrick Lamar and Bishop Lamont... every Hip-Hop head should want to do that... now.
To keep the buzz going for their forth coming mixtape, the group Blaq Planet (emcee Ston-city and producer/songwriter/vocalist Olatunji Mason) linked up with up and coming lyricist Infinite and boom bap beatmaker J-Coleman for a freestyle cipher. The cipher took place outside in the parking lot of the Rec Center on Clanton Road in Charlotte, NC after the four had finished volunteering at a Ketchmore Kids Community event.
