R.A. The Rugged Man Die, Rugged Man, Die on 2LP

Few artists are ever as controversial as they are influential. New York legend R.A. the Rugged Man has lived up to such a moniker by simultaneously inspiring generations of rappers while being banned from every major record label's offices and even barred from performing during the late-90s underground explosion.

But by combining the authenticity of his undeniably rugged life with his undisputed mic skills and understanding of the genre as a Hip-Hop historian, his music has both survived and thrived off the strength of bootlegs and word of mouth through high profile collaborations and high quality official releases, setting a standard for "Real MCs" that few have ever attempted to match. Frequent collaborator The Notorious B.I.G. was once quoted in reference to R.A. by stating "And I thought I was the illest."

Originally released in 2004, Die, Rugged Man, Die became the first album commercially released by the grimy M.C. and was received with high praise for both it's guttural lyrics and in your face delivery. R.A. proves his skill here, with joints about label deals gone bad to cuts that reminisce 'bout the old days. This vinyl reissue (which includes a bonus track not available on the original LP) brings R.A.'s incomparable style and charisma back into the spotlight after years of underground acclaim.
