Ras Kass

Rapper Ras Kass was born John Austin in Watts, CA; a voracious reader throughout his youth, he adopted his stage name in honor of the African king Ras Rass. After releasing a pair of independent singles, Ras Kass emerged as one of the most highly regarded new rappers in some time, winning particular acclaim for his skills as a lyricist (in the space of six months, he twice earned Rap Pages magazine's Rhyme of the Month award as well as The Source's Hip Hop Quotable honor); his long-awaited debut LP, Soul on Ice, finally appeared on Priority Records in 1996. Rasassination followed two years later. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

RAS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF MY TOP FIVE M.C.'S OF ALL TIME!!!
one of the dopest mc's in the game, f**k the new age bullshit. ras kass delivers on tracks like "nature of the threat" teeny bopper f**ks these days dont know nothing about real hip hop. this is where its at. he may be another canibus in the light of not getting the play he deserved, but f**k that, true hip hop heads know who ras really is.
Anyone who can hang with GZA on a joint gets all the respect in the world.
Such a sick talent
There are many industry political reasons why Ras didn't "blow", but his own actions also played a role... such as DWIs, prison time, beefing with Alchemist(re a l l y corny) etc. Ras still my dude and has some of the illest verses ever.
Dre signed Game bcuz Game already has commercial success and thatz what brings in the $$$.

Yessss, undeniably, Razz has way betta skillz

I would put him among the Elitist in the Rap Hall of Fame
This guy is another Can-i-bus case: Heavily skilled rappas who didnt enjoy the commercial success we envisioned.. . i t pisses me off.... he could have been a great emcee repping West Coast Hip-hop!!! Ras you still one of my favorites...
This Is One Of the Greatest Rappers of All Time Dont Sleep On This Guy He IS 4eva Great
He don't get the props that is deserved.

I can't believe that Dr. Dre signed Game and not Razz Kazz!!!

I guess Game held a little moe clout wit Dre than Kass, but I want to hear more from Kass. His rap skills are undeniable!! ! ! !
