From “Uncommon Valor” to “Nosebleed”, it’s always a lyrical slaughter when R.A. gets together with Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks. Check out the new music video for their latest collaboration, “Sam Peckinpah.” Featuring a hook from Sadat X of Brand Nubian, the track is taken from R.A.’s new album Legends Never Die.
R.A. The Rugged Man has never shied away from controversy, whether in his music or his political views. Recently, R.A. sat down with The Young Turks to discuss politics, his career, free speech, racism, and more. Speaking with former MSNBC and Current TV contributor Cenk Uygur, R.A. explains his controversial track “Shoot Me In The Head,” defends his use of the word “faggot”, and attacks the Democratic party’s racist history. With over 50 million monthly views, The Young Turks is the largest online news show in the world.
Three hip-hop legends unite to form a modern-day Rat Pack in the Rugged Man’s latest music video, featuring Brother Ali and Masta Ace. “The Dangerous Three” taken from R.A.’s new album Legends Never Die.
With recent European and Canadian tours already in the books, R.A. is now embarking on a trek across Australia, with a few more stops in Europe first. After hitting the Royal Arena and Hip Hop Kemp festivals, R.A. heads down under for the official Legends Never Die Australian tour, celebrating his critically acclaimed new album. Check out all dates on the shows page.
To celebrate the success of his new album Legends Never Die, the Rugged Man has released a limited-edition Agent Orange-colored cassette tape containing the entire album, plus the bonus track “It’s Gone.” R.A.‘s father Staff Sgt. John A. Thorburn was infamously exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam, causing two of the Rugged Man’s siblings to be born physically impaired (a story chronicled on the seminal classic “Uncommon Valor”). Check out “It’s Gone” now and order the cassette tape here: http://bit.ly/13Ai0Aw.
Fresh off the release of Legends Never Die, R.A. The Rugged Man is unveiling the most highly-anticipated video off the album. “Holla-Loo-Yuh” features two iconic emcees uniting, as R.A. is joined by Tech N9ne, with fellow Strange Music emcee Krizz Kaliko on the hook. While R.A. and Tech have run in the same circles for over a decade, the all-out lyrical slaughter of “Holla-Loo-Yuh” marks their historic first-ever collaboration. Legends Never Die in stores now.
