This is the high point of my adult life as I connect with a hero of mine, hip-hop legend R.A. The Rugged man. R.A. joins us to chat about his new album “All My Heroes Are Dead”, his early days, the current state of hip-hop, and his legendary career. It’s a fun conversation for R.A. fans and hip hop heads a like. Tune in to an interview that doesn’t hang up in the first 30 seconds. R.A. ain’t no Canseco! It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Podcast.

        That’s exactly what it was, but totally worth it. I was listening and chiming in to myself in as if I was on the pod too

            Haha hightlights and more unnecessary thoughts with NtD! Super jealous, me and Ralph have been talking about doing a hip hop podcast and then boom! RA on Razzball. Glad someone put you on to RA dropping cuz I’ve been meaning to pop in and tell you to check it out.

                  I wanna start a fire just to have Nick the Dick wipe out his hose and extinguish that shizz

                    HA! Big hose energy…last time I saw RA live was at a hole in the wall in Probidence RI prob 6 years ago and he had Sean Price go on before him not long before he died. He sounded in rough shape. RA the best live performer tho, he turns nothing into moshpits

    This was great!!! Really interesting pod.

    Just downloaded some of the songs mentioned. Haven’t heard Uncommon Valor in YEARS! I was obsessed when that first came out.

    From the last couple pods, seems like I prefer the same type of rap that Ralph likes. Would love some more recs if you can reply and let me know!

    Thanks guys!!

    Is this real life?

    I have been jamming’ this album for the last week it has been out. It is unreal.

    RA is one of my favorites. Uncommon Valor isa top 10 song of all time.

    Damn you guys! Keep up the good work!

      And I don’t like to compare RA to Eminem, but those are the only two Artists I can ever think of that destroy whomever has them guest starring or featured on a track. Literally, name one track that RA is featured on that he doesn’t just steal the whole damn song?….

      I am down here waiting.

    “Nick is fighting fires in New London”
    “Fireman in New Rochelle!!”

    “I’m not gonna tell RA I like Drake songs, he’ll make fun of me”
    “RA, I like Drake songs!”

    “I wanna know about your career, you made a bootleg Barbershop with Bobby Brown”

    Great show per usual, fellas.

    Was psyched to hear College Hill mentioned in the intro. Bought a lot of records in the mid 90s at Tom’s Tracks, In Your Ear, and especially Fast Forward (in the Thayer and Empire St locations).

    Wishing Ralph, Grey, and all of Razz Nation good health!
