If you're like me and miss old school hip hop, you're going to want to check out the latest from Ras Kass. First of all, it features legendary rapper Masta Ace. When you include Masta Ace on a song, you get immediate old school cred. And then there's the song itself. "CULTURE.VULTURE." is pure old school. The song sounds modern while keeping a classic vibe. Sure, there is still the R&B style chorus, but it's a more of an early 90's R&B chorus so it's not overdone at all.
Rass Kass says of "CULTURE.VULTURE.": "[Producer Hi-Tek] came with the straight primal drums! Ace's flow is liquid and Sapp hook smoothes it out on some Old School, Cold Crush harmony routine vibe. We do this shit for the Culture!"
You can watch the video for "CULTURE.VULTURE." below. I'm Not Clearing Shxt, the upcoming album from Ras Kass, will be out November 6. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Ras Kass, check out his Facebook and Twitter.
